Otto Porter says his mom gets whatever is left with his money after giving back
Otto Porter is having a very good summer as the offer sheet the Brooklyn Nets gave him was matched by the Washington Wizards. He is now a max contract player and is slated to receive $106.5 million over the next four years.
With the lucrative salary he is going to receive, many may wonder how he plans to spend it. However, he recently made it known, via Chase Hughes of CSNMA, where his money will go, and surprisingly did not say anything about how much will be left for himself.
Otto Porter said he will give money to his high school, his church and "then my mom gets whatever else is left."

The 25-year-old Georgetown product raised his stock by coming off his best season as a pro, with averages of 13.4 points, 6.4 rebounds, 1.5 assists, and 1.5 steals per game. He was able to successfully establish himself as one of the better two-way players in the league, bringing plenty of versatility to the Wizards with his ability to play and defend multiple positions.
Now that he’ll have the opportunity to continue his career with the Wizards, he is expected to continue becoming an integral part of their rotation, and may even take on a bigger role, depending on matchups.
The D.C. faithful are hopeful he can play even better in the coming years to further strengthen their championship bid. Should he be able to show more improvement, he could possibly secure another huge contract in the future, which will allow him to give more money to his high school, church, and mother.
