According to Chase Hughes of NBC Sports, the Washington Wizards power forward Bobby Portis and restricted free agent this summer, is expected to draw interest from a bunch of teams, including the Los Angeles Lakers, Milwaukee Bucks and New York Knicks.

“The Wizards are likely to first extend a qualifying offer on June 30 to make him a restricted free agent. According to Spotrac.com, it will be about $3.6 million and that will give the Wizards the right to match an offer sheet from another franchise,” Hughes reported.

Last season, Portis averaged 14.2 points, 8.1 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game, while shooting at 44.4 percent from the floor and 39.3 percent from three in 26.0 minutes of action.
