Jontay Porter signs with Memphis 

Post#1 » by VCfor3 » Mon Mar 9, 2020 4:36 pm

Jontay Porter signed a multi-year deal with the Memphis Grizzlies, league sources told Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Porter has rehabbed from two separate knee injuries, and is expected to be ready in time for training camp next season.

Memphis reclamation players this year.

Jonas - 15/11/2, 60% eFG% (26 mins)
Jackson - 10/3/2, 50% eFG% (20 mins) + defender
Melton - 8/3/3, 48% eFG% (20 mins) + defender

Jontay Porter is the result of Memphis finding success reclaiming talent. If he can stay healthy, Memphis will have another talent without cost or tanking.

Porter has "1st Round" draft pick potential. This could be huge over time as we lose our pick this year.

I remember Jontay from his profile I read on a couple of years ago. Could've been a potential FRP, His injuries derail that bigtime. Like his brother Michael with the Nuggets, can Jontay be of good use and stay healthy? Only time will tell on that. I'm still on the notion that Justin Patton could be worth a look with his athleticism and potential he has to offer.

I am impressed with this move. Porter is either "a low cost Jokic 2.0" or a "no cost Parsons 2.0".

At the rate things are going, maybe Porter will be healthy enough to log a couple minutes when things start back up again ha!
