According to multiple reports, the Brooklyn Nets have reached an agreement with restricted free agent Otto Porter on a four-year, $106 million max deal, an offer the Wizards now have three days to match.

Porter, still just 24, is coming off the best season of his career, having averaged 13.4 points and 6.4 rebounds a game while shooting 43.4 percent from three-point range, fourth-best in the league.

With no clear options to replace Porter, Washington most likely will offer the Georgetown grad an identical contract to the one he agreed to with the Nets. Brooklyn has a history of signing restricted free agents to high-price offer sheets, doing so with three other players besides Porter over the past two years.

All three times, however, the player wound up returning to his previous team after they matched the Nets’ initial offer.
