2019 Draft Prospects: Kevin Porter Jr.

A thigh injury and a team suspension trimmed Kevin Porter Jr.'s freshman season at USC to just 21 games, so it’s going to be hard for NBA scouts to assess his college performance. When he did play, though, there was a lot to like, as he is a terrific athlete with an explosive first step.

Where the 6-foot-6, 218-pounder really thrives is in transition, as he can fly up and down the floor. He also is really talented in isolation, possessing tight handles and nifty footwork. Being able to score from all three levels is a reason why some felt he could be a top 10 pick in the draft.
