I really like Porter Jr. Skillwise I think he has the best combination of skills out of any wing in this draft. But he does have that JR Smith effect and what I mean by that is I think JR Smith couldve been anything he wanted to be. Look at the total package. Can dribble drive, athletic, can hit just about any shot that exists at any angle with a hand in his face and create that shot as he sees fit. But never took his career seriously and you know how history played out. Perhaps it's too early to say but Porter didnt have the best production even while having a large diversity of skills, just like Smith and then got into some trouble.
It wouldn't surprise me if he ends up better as you say but if he didnt would you be surprised either? I think hes a great value for a team picking in the teens but is a risk in the lottery.
