Otto Porter
SF, 6’8, 198lbs, 24 years old, 4 years of experience

Shot a .628% true shooting percentage and 43.4% from outside, an excellent role model for all the “needs to develop range and ball skills” types of athletic forward described elsewhere in this piece as to what could truly be possible for them. Not flashy, just solid - cutting, running, spotting up, boarding, absolutely never turning the ball over ever (or so it seems) and providing effective, versatile defence. The Wizards’ financial situation in this post-Mahinmi era is a bit stretched, and some money will have to be cut somewhere as Porter enters restricted free agency. But definitely do not cut it here.

Player Plan: Entering restricted free agency, and might be about to be maxed by a team such as Brooklyn (if not Brooklyn) who can afford to overpay on quality if not star youngsters. Maxing Porter likely puts the team into the tax territory. Not keeping him takes them out of contention. Pay Porter, and if money needs to be saved, save it elsewhere.
