2019 Fantasy Outlook
In terms of pure talent, Porter ranks among the top guards in the 2019 Draft, but he had an up-and-down freshman season at USC that was marred by off-court issues and a suspension. However, Porter will likely be given a fair chance to develop for the rebuilding Cavs. During 13 college appearances in which Porter saw at least 24 minutes, he averaged 11.8 points on 9.2 shots, 4.3 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.2 steals. A hip injury prevented him from participating in summer league, but he's expected to be ready for training camp. At 6-foot-6, 218 pounds, Porter should be able to secure minutes at shooting guard and small forward, though he'll have to beat out the likes of Brandon Knight, Jordan Clarkson and Dylan Windler for consistent run off the bench. While Porter probably won't return standard fantasy league value, there's room for him to be drafted with the final selection of a deep league, with a dynasty league pickup being the best option.

Personal Bio

Bryan Kevin Porter Jr. was born in 2000 in Seattle, Washington to Bryan Sr. and Ayanna Porter. He followed in his father's footsteps by attending Rainier Beach High School in Seattle. As a senior, Porter posted 27 points, 14 rebounds, and five assists per game as the team reached the state championship. As a result of his outstanding effort, he was awarded the honor of Washington Mr. Basketball for 2018. Heading into college, Porter was ranked as high as No. 16 in the country in terms of available national recruits. You can follow him on Twitter (@Kevinporterjr) and Instagram (@kevinporterjr).

College/International Summary

Porter's lone season at USC was a campaign defined by fits and starts. The 6-foot-6 guard mainly came off the bench, but he provided scoring when he was available. The Seattle native opened the season with five straight double-digit scoring games. Porter suffered a quadriceps contusion on Nov. 20 and ended up missing nine games. He returned on Jan. 10, but he only scored five points. He was suspended three days later for "personal conduct issues." Porter would get his act together and return to the team on Jan. 24. He closed the season by scoring in double digits in five of his last eight games. The wing had a double-double with 11 points and 10 rebounds in the loss to Oregon State. He scored a season-high 17 points on 6-for-8 shooting from the field in the Pac-12 Tournament loss to Washington. After the season, he declared for the 2019 NBA Draft and left with three seasons of eligibility. Porter was selected 30th overall by the Milwaukee Bucks, but was later traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers via the Detroit Pistons.
