Report: Wizards Interested in Otto Porter For Paul George Sign-and-Trade

The Washington Wizards would reportedly have interest in a sign-and-trade deal for Paul George centered around Otto Porter and a future draft pick.

Washington has been weighing their options with Porter, who will command a lucrative contract as a restricted free agent.

According to ESPN’s Zach Lowe, Washington would consider a one-year rental of George en lieu of committing long-term to Porter.

The Wizards would likely sign-and-trade Otto Porter, with one protected pick attached, to rent George, according to league sources.

Conflicting reports, however, point toward Washington wanting to re-sign Porter at all costs.

Mike Wise of The Undefeated claims that the Wizards will make an “aggressive offer” to Porter—and match any offer sheet—come July 1.
