Free agency last year was the first one for Sean Marks as general manager of the Brooklyn Nets. One of the ways he attempted to improve the talent on the roster was by being aggressive in the pursuit of restricted free agents. He made a bold move to offer big contacts to relatively unknown young players in Tyler Johnson of the Miami Heat and Allen Crabbe of the Portland Trail Blazers, but both offers were matched, as neither team wanted to lose a promising young player for nothing. A year later, there is once again speculation that Marks will offer large contracts to young restricted free agents. According to Sean Deveney of Sporting News, the Nets have long been interested in forward Otto Porter of the Washington Wizards. He adds that the Philadelphia 76ers and the Orlando Magic will also consider making him an offer this offseason.
