As expected, Wizards match Nets' $106 million offer to Otto Porter

The Nets and Porter reached an agreement Wednesday on an offer sheet that would pay Porter the maximum of $106 million over four years. With this contract, the Wizards will exceed the luxury tax line for the first time in franchise history. From there, the Wizards have another 48 hours to file the process to the league.

Harden also signed a 13-year, $200 million endorsement deal with adidas in 2015 that gives him an extra $15.4 million a year along with his salary. Essentially, the Nets are really trying to swindle the Wizards and hope they don't match this ridiculous offer to Porter.

The Houston Rockets have agreed to a contract extension with star guard James Harden that will make him the highest-paid player in National Basketball Association history, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Brian Windhorst. Despite these details, the Wizards held steadfast in their pledge to bring back the 24-year-old Porter.
