Kid can score. He has a strong chance to be gettin major minutes for Houston by the end of the season. He’s (yet) another great recent pickup by the Rockets
He won’t get major minutes playing behind Jae’Sean Tate, Christian Wood, KJ Martin, and Usman Garuba (possibly Kelly Olynyk too if he re-signs).
Although his elite 3-point shooting should get him some playing time.
Dude…anyone has a chance for minutes on that team.
After Green, Wood, Wall, Porter, Tate, Gordon, Martin, Sengun, and Garuba there won’t be many minutes left for a G-Leaguer. If they re-sign Olynyk there will be even fewer left for Hurt or anyone else.
Wally did you change your nickname again? Must suck to go from HardenRuss to Porter?))))
How did this dude not get drafted?? He is better than Aari. Wiggins who the thunder picked up at 55. And he is very similar to Georgios Kaletzeikas the only difference is Georgios is a draft and stash
His defense needs a lot of work, that’s why no one drafted him.
Hopefully playing in the G-League will help him to improve upon it.
