Despite being a restricted free agent, Washington Wizards small forward Otto Porter Jr.is receiving a lot of interest from teams on the open market.

As Aldridge mentioned, the Wizards have reportedly said that they will match any offer sent Porter's way, so it still seems likely that Porter will remain in Washington, however being able to strike a deal at the beginning of free agency would've likely saved the Wizards a bit of money.

Porter's agent, David Falk, has made it clear to teams that his client is expecting a max contract offer, so expect to see the Wizards ready to pony up some cash once Porter signs the offer sheet.

The actual amount for the max offer sheet will approximately be a touch over $106 million, according to Cole Zwicker.

He said the force, which is expected to consist of around 5000 troops, needed to be fully operational by this autumn. France intervened to chase out jihadists linked to Al-Qaeda who had overtaken key northern cities in Mali in 2013.

Hoping to pre-empt any other offers, the Wizards met with Porter immediately, and hoped to come to an agreement on a long-term deal to keep him in town.

Porter really came into his own previous year, showing the world why he was picked at No. 3 overall in 2013.

The 24-year-old wing is coming off his best season in the National Basketball Association, posting 13.4 points, 6.4 rebounds and 1.5 steals in 32.6 minutes per game. Every single one of those averages and percentages were career-highs for the 24-year-old.

All reports out of Washington indicate the Wizards intend to match any offer for Porter, who was the third overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft.
