Expect the Cleveland Cavaliers to go to Kevin Porter Jr. early and often.

He took some time to get going in year 1, but Kevin Porter Jr. had a successful rookie campaign for the Cleveland Cavaliers. In 2019-20, Porter had 10.0 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.2 assists per outing, and got more comfortable as the year progressed.

Looking at next season, Porter is set to be one of the Cavaliers’ best on-ball options, with his driving/finishing prowess, athleticism and ability to generate space off-the-bounce.
