Draft Notes: Porter, Sexton, Carter, Knicks

Michael Porter Jr.‘s Pro Day will happen this Friday in Chicago, and so far the Bulls are the only team that has had a chance to get a closer look at Porter’s back, as Dave Matter of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch details. Porter underwent back surgery that forced him to miss nearly all of the 2017/18 season.

Matter, who is relaying information conveyed by Porter’s father during a radio appearance on KMOX, writes that the Missouri forward hasn’t released his medical information to other teams yet, but those clubs will have an opportunity to watch him on Friday. The Porters also intend to share the Bulls’ medical report with every other NBA team, Matter adds.

Plenty of NBA clubs figure to be in attendance on Friday in Chicago to see Porter up close. We’ve heard that the Kings and Grizzlies are keeping a close eye on the youngster, and the Knicks will be there on Friday too, a source tells Marc Berman of The New York Post. Adam Zagoria of ZagsBlog.com hears that the Knicks will be well represented at that session, tweeting that president of basketball ops Steve Mills and GM Scott Perry will both be present.

    What’s the point of the Knicks showing up he’s not Gonna drop that low and they’re not gonna move up in the draft

      Jets almost didn’t meet with Sam Darnold cuz there was no way he’d drop to 3, but guess what… Shit happens.

      Mavs take Bamba. Not that I like the pick, I’d select Porter myself at that spot and move Barnes, but Bamba is the pick if something crazy doesn’t happen before the pick.

  2. Porter will still likely be there at #6, with the team holding the pick likely wanting a young PG. There is a trade up possibility for teams holding a pick (Bulls, Cavs and Knicks) that can yield the PG of their choice. Won’t be cheap, but I think Mikal Bridges will be off the board before #9 if the Bulls and Cavs stay where they are, so it might make sense for the Knicks to start thinking about.

    If Sexton is a draft day riser, its prob at the expense of Carter Jr.. That’s the only player I see slipping.
