Jr. was another integral piece for the gold medal U.S. squad in Chile, posting per 40 averages of 30 points, 10.6 rebounds, and 4.6 assists. At 6'10, with a 7-foot wingspan Porter has unique physical tools for an 18-year-old that can be slotted into either forward position. Porter is a fluid and long athlete, who looks very comfortable running the floor in transition, getting out in space, and finishing above the rim, as demonstrated with some highlight reel finishes throughout the tournament. Porter can impact the game in the half court as well, knocking down shots from beyond the arc, as well as showing nice touch on one and two dribble pull ups and runners. Porter can make some plays off the bounce, but at this point is most effective on straight line drives, using his length and athleticism to get to the rim. Porter won't graduate until 2017, and is heading into his senior season at Nathan Hale High school in Seattle where he will be under the guidance of new head coach, Brandon Roy
. He has already committed to the University of Washington, and looks to have the makings of a one and done lottery pick.
