Nuggets end Porter´s slide at number 14

June 22 2018 3:16 AM

The Denver Nuggets selected Missouri small forward Michael Porter Jr. with the number 14 overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft.

Porter, a former top-three high school recruit, missed most of 2017-18 – his freshman season with the Tigers – after undergoing back surgery in November.

Many teams balked at Porter due to long-term health risk, but the Nuggets decided pick 14 was a worthy spot to take a chance on a guy who could have gone number one overall if fully healthy.

Porter, a small forward, is an elite shooter who has the ability to create his own shot. Though he needs to add strength to reach his full potential, Denver could get a steal if his back checks out.
