Kevin Porter Jr. Shows Off Cavs Threads, Declares He’s Ready for Upcoming Season
- Updated: September 20, 2019
The 6-foot-6 guard’s athleticism and shooting ability could be the traits that make him a success in the NBA. Rather than just play a backup role in the Cavs’ crowded backcourt, he could also see time as a small forward off the bench for head coach John Beilein.
Last month, at the Seattle-based Crawsover Pro-Am league, Porter gave fans a preview of what he could do in the pros when he exploded for 40 points.
During his lone collegiate season, Porter averaged pedestrian numbers of 9.5 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 1.4 assists per game. But he also shot 47.1 percent from the field and 41.2 percent from 3-point range in college, making him a potential instant scoring threat for the Cavs.
Porter was taken with the 30th overall pick in this year’s draft by the Milwaukee Bucks. He was immediately traded on draft day to the Detroit Pistons, who shipped him off later to the Cavaliers in exchange for draft picks and cash considerations.
