Fantasy Slant: Otto Porter Jr. Returns to the Wizards on Max Deal

The Washington Wizards have kept their big three together, matching the Brooklyn Nets' four-year, $106.5 million offer sheet to young wing Otto Porter Jr. 

It's a move that most anticipated after Porter hit the restricted free agent market earlier in July. Though, it comes at an absolutely huge cost for the Wizards, who have a lucrative contract offer headed John Wall's way and have already signed Bradley Beal to a max deal himself. 

Porter, 24, was absolutely brilliant for the surprising Wizards last season. He averaged 13.4 points and 6.4 rebounds while shooting at 43 percent clip from three point range. 

As the Wizards' No. 3 options, Porter will likely remain limited from a fantasy aspect. Though, Washington fully expects hm to take on a a more prevalent scoring role after handing him $25-plus million annually. Last season saw Porter attempt an average of just 10 shots per game.

This number needs to increase to 15-plus for him to live up to his contract and before relevant from a year-long fantasy basketball perspective.
