Michael Porter Jr NBA Draft Scouting Report

6-9 - Small Forward - Washington

A highly skilled wing player who has awesome ability for a 6-9 player. Huge upside on the offensive end.

Pros
Porter has unique skills for a 6-9 player with a great looking three point shot and excellent athleticism. Gets incredible elevation on his shot and is almost impossible to block. Has all the makings of a top level NBA three point shooter.

Has ideal length and athleticism for the SF position. Elevates well and can really play above the rim. Really attacks the bucket well.

Very solid in all aspects of the game. Fundamentally sound with high level understanding of timing, spacing and team defense.

A unique talent with tantalizing upside.

Cons
It's early. We'll see how he develops over the next few years. Can he fill out his frame and keep his mobility?

Comparisons
Looks like Kevin Durant with his three point shot and ability to play above the rim.

Projection: lottery pick in the 2018 NBA Draft
