Rumors have said that the Washington Wizards intend to match any deal for restricted free agent Otto Porter Jr. Now we get to see if that’s true.

According to Yahoo! Sports’ Shams Charania, Porter has reached a four-year, $106 million max contract deal with the Brooklyn Nets.

Washington already has John Wall and Bradley Beal under major contracts, so matching the deal for Porter will significantly limit their future cap space.

Via Twitter:

If Brooklyn can add Porter, it would be a huge asset to their summer record. Last season the Nets lost out on both Allen Crabbe and Tyler Johnson with their restricted free agency offers.

Meanwhile, the Utah Jazz have reportedly been interested in Porter after the Boston Celtics signed Gordon Hayward away from them. Now they might have to look elsewhere.

We will have to wait and see if the Wizards match. Washington has three days in order to make their decision.

No need to watch the fireworks on July 4, the NBA has plenty of its own.
