Porter averaged 13.4 points and 6.4 rebounds per game this past season with Washington. The athletic swingman shot 51.6 percent from the field and 43.4 percent beyond the arc.
Porter’s three-point percentage ranked fourth best in the NBA, and combined with his ability to defend positions 1-4, he was set to earn this type of payday once the free agency period began.
