8. Michael Porter Jr. F, Missouri
Michael Porter Jr. suffered a back injury during his freshman year at Missouri which canceled any shot he had at becoming a Number One overall pick in this year’s draft. That makes him a potential steal this low in the draft.
Porter is a great offensive talent and has the size (6-foot-10) to dominate at the NBA level. In only three games last year, he averaged 10 points and 6.7 rebounds per game. Another year in the gym and another year to get his body right will certainly help.
He’s one of the biggest upside players in the draft and can become an absolute stud given time and the right situation.
