Vertical Wingspan Draft Range
31.5 7-2 10-20
  • Yet another modern big man entering the NBA. Portis is a power forward at nearly 6-11 who can legitimately shoot the basketball as well as defend. The SEC Player of the Year might never become a superstar due to some limited athletic ability, but his ability to do multiple things like post up, shoot, and play in the pick-and-roll will make it tough for defenders to play him. Plus, he plays harder and angrier than possibly any other player in this draft.
  • Portis was about as efficient as anyone else in college basketball last season, finishing with a 29.5 PER for the season that placed him second in the SEC behind Karl Towns. Portis is a terrific scorer who has great touch around the rim in the post, as well as the ability to step away and knock down mid-range jumpers -- something every NBA offense craves from a guy that is 6-11. Defensively, Portis moves really well on the perimeter and always works hard.
  • Really, the only worry here is that his athletic explosive is fairly limited, potentially downgrading his upside a bit. He's a bit mechanical in his movements, which means that he might not be able to create for himself like some others that will go in the lottery. But overall, his high work ethic and all-around game should play well in the NBA.

  • Round: 2    Pick: 29

    Gary Parrish's Analysis:

    Portis was a bright spot for an Arkansas team that stumbled too much late to make the NCAA Tournament. (Previous: NR)
