Rockets Hope To Turn Kevin Porter Jr. Into Point Guard 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Feb 24, 2021 12:04 am

The Houston Rockets plan on converting Kevin Porter Jr. into a point guard.


The Rockets are having Porter work on his development with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers in the G League bubble.


Porter is averaging 23.3 points, 4.6 rebounds and 6.1 assists per game on 44.1 percent shooting from the field while shooting 29.1 percent from 3 and 76.2 percent from the free throw line.


Porter's game has been compared to James Harden and the Rockets hope he can follow a similar career arc in more of a point guard role.


The Rockets also hope John Lucas can make a difference as a mentor for Porter.

Definitely in good hands in Houston that they realize that level of BBIQ and playmaking ability is already there esp with the iso skill but willingness to make the right play.
