Allen and Porter are no longer officially declared inactive, at least for now. Jenkins suggested both players would be evaluated in five-on-five practices in Orlando, the door slightly more open for Allen’s return. “Grayson’s been on a long-term plan and has been progressing well,” said Jenkins. “We think he’ll be in a good spot as well, but we’ll know more when we get to Orlando.”

Grizzlies add Jontay Porter

Adrian Wojnarowski: Jontay Porter, a rookie F/C out of Missouri, has signed a multi-year deal with the Grizzlies, his agent Mark Bartelstein of @PrioritySports tells ESPN. Porter rehabbed two separate knee injuries, but has progressed well and is expected to be ready for training camp next season.

“When I do make the NBA I want to be a factor right away,” Jontay Porter said. “Not that I’m going to be an All-Star or anything like that. And the G-League isn’t necessarily a bad thing or anything like that, but I realize I do have development to do before I’m ready to make the impact I envision on an NBA team. Coming back getting better, stronger, more mentally tough, getting ready to take that step and be a man in the NBA, I think coming back one more year is necessary.” Porter’s father, Mizzou assistant Michael Porter Sr., wasn’t made available to reporters, but in an KMOX interview with Mike Kelly that aired Sunday, he said one team was particularly smitten with the 6-11 forward: the San Antonio Spurs, who own the No. 18 pick in the first round of the draft.
Multiple league sources say Missouri big man Jontay Porter, the younger brother of Michael Porter, is leaning toward returning to school for his sophomore season. Porter is a skilled shooter and passer who needs to get in better shape to prove he can defend. He’s currently projected as a late-first- to mid-second-round pick. The 2019 draft class is weaker, so Jontay could rise into the lottery with a strong sophomore season.
Porter Jr., like most projected lottery picks, did not participate in the five-on-five scrimmages here during the first day of action at the combine, which ends Friday. Jontay Porter, who has declared for the draft but has not signed with an agent — which leaves open the possibility of a return to MU — surprisingly opted not to participate in the scrimmages either. “We were advised not to have him do five-on-five,” Porter Sr. told The Star.
