Veteran Otto Porter Jr. is looking to land with the Brooklyn Nets in free agency this offseason.

“Otto Porter Jr. and Rudy Gay are two players the [Utah] Jazz hold interest in,” wrote Tony Jones of The Athletic. “But those names also come with caveats. Gay is thought to be leaning toward the Los Angeles Lakers. Porter is thought to be leaning to the Brooklyn Nets. In free agency, anything can happen.”

Porter, 28, spent the 2020-21 campaign playing for the Chicago Bulls and Orlando Magic.

The forward was sent to the Bulls from the Magic last season in the trade that landed Chicago two-time All-Star Nikola Vucevic. Porter played in just three games for the Magic following the trade.

In a Magic uniform, Porter collected 8.0 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.3 steals per game.

While Porter’s numbers weren’t extremely encouraging, he is a hot name around the league. The Golden State Warriors were one of the squads monitoring the veteran last year.

The 6-foot-8 pro is reportedly looking for a mid-level exception this summer.
