Michael Porter Rumors

All NBA Players
In the past two years, Porter Jr. has gone from a possible No. 1 pick prospect during his days at Nathan Hale High School in Seattle to a walking question mark after he suffered discomfort in the first half of his first college game against Iowa State, which was the result of a fall he suffered two summers earlier while going up for a dunk. The microdiscectomy surgery last November brought with it the widespread belief that his draft stock would plummet because, well, undergoing a procedure to relieve pressure from herniated discs certainly counts as a con. But now, Porter Jr. and his agent, Mark Bartelstein of Priority Sports, have done enough convincing that multiple top-five teams are still taking this long, hard look. There was an early June group workout in Chicago that left the Kings and everyone else in the building impressed, as Porter Jr. shot the ball very well – albeit in a stand-still setting.
