Otto Porter

I've probably seen 500 mocks already this season, most of them have us taking Len or Noel. But about 50 of them have Noel going #1 McLemore going #2 and Len at #3 to the wiz. The weird thing is, if this happens everyone mocks Anthony Bennett to us. Why would we pick Bennett over Porter or even Oladipo? I'm a fan of Bennett's skills but how could we possible pass on Porter?

Porter could play PF, he is just a hair under 6'10.

Rumor is Wizards gave him a guarantee. Not sure if true though

He only worked out for the top three teams due to a promise from one of them (rumor has it the Wiz like teeray said above).  I would not be against drafting Porter if he slid to 4, but only if Bennett, Len, and Noel are gone... it would be a toss up to me on McLemore or Porter

He shouldn't make it out of the top three.

There is a reason he has declined to work out for anyone not in the top three.

However, Porter has the best chance out of all the players in the draft to make an instant impact.

The kid is about the same age as me, He is obvious about 6 inches taller but we have the same bodytime. IF I can put on 25 pounds of weight/muscle I know he can put on more being professionally trained and having Patrick Ewing by his side.

Otto Porter is a prototypical NBA SF. He will need to add strength/weight just to fulfill that role most effectively. He's also not "a hair under 6'10"- he's not even 6'9" in shoes. He has the potential to be a stretch 4 in certain lineups but he is never going to see extended action as an NBA PF.

Rumor on ProBasketball talk that Wiz are talking to Bulls about a trade of 3rd pick for Deng. Be funny if they traded out and Porter started dropping because he refused to work out for anyone else.

At least it nearly secures we will get Len or Noel.
