Bobby Portis has signed a two-year, $31 million contract with the New York Knicks, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

The Wizards extended Portis a qualifying offer sheet recently, so they could match it. However, according to Fred Katz of The Athletic, Washington rescinded the offer, so Portis will be experiencing the hustle and bustle of Midtown and the relentless New York media.

That said, I think Washington comes very close to a tough crowd these days.

Portis averaged 14.3 points and 8.6 rebounds per game in the 2018-19 season for Washington.
