Because Porter is actually a restricted free agent, the Wizards can match the max offer from the Nets. The Wizards have said multiple times that they'll match any offer Porter receives on the open market, so there's a chance he's still back in Washington DC at the start of next season. Porter is coming off a 2016-17 campaign where he averaged a career-high 13.4 points, while shooting an impressive 51.6 percent from the field and 43.4 percent from the three-point line. In addition to the 13.4 points, Porter also averaged 6.4 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.9 three-pointers, but he'd likely have the opportunity to boost those numbers with a move to Brooklyn.
Porter scored 20 points (6-10 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 8-8 FT) with 10 rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block across 39 minutes in Monday's 115-105 Game 7 loss to the Celtics.
Porter recovered from a dismal zero-point Game 6 to record his highest scoring total of the post-season and his second double-double of the series, but the Celtics proved to be too much for Porter and the Wizards in Game 7. The 3-and-D wing finished the series scoring a respectable 14.1 points per game on 55.7 percent from the field, but at just 19 percent from three Porter failed to produce where he found so much success in the regular season.
Porter produced 18 points (7-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-3 FT), eight rebounds, four steals, and two assists in 34 minutes during Sunday's 121-102 win over the Celtics in Game 4.
After an underwhelming opening round performance versus the Hawks, Porter has been on fire through four games against the Celtics, averaging 16.5 points (on 61.4 percent shooting), 9.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 2.3 steals, and 0.5 blocks in 37.8 minutes per night. Furthermore, Porter managed a playoff career high in steals on Sunday while helping to fuel a 26-0 run in the third quarter.
Porter finished with 19 points (8-13 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds, three steals and two assists across 38 minutes during Thursday's 116-89 Game 3 victory over the Celtics.
Porter, who was averaging just 11.0 points per game in the playoffs coming into Thursday, dropped 19 points in a Game 3 blowout, marking his highest total this postseason. Oddly enough, he did so without making a shot from behind the arc, despite being a 43.4 percent three-point shooter in the regular season. Not only was he cooking on offense, but his three steals was also a categorical best for him this postseason. Part of the reason for his success may have come as a result of being guarded by Gerald Green, who drew the start over Amir Johnson, instead of Jae Crowder, who was pushed up to power forward with opposing coach Brad Stevens' lineup change. It remains to be seen what coach Stevens will do with his starting five heading into Sunday's Game 4, but it could be worth monitoring, as another game guarded by Green could have significant fantasy implications.
