Otto Porter Jr: Score 10+ points per game
Porter was signed to be one of the first few off the bench, as his ability to rise up from 3-point range was invaluable to Golden State last season. With Toronto’s court at the bottom of the league in scoring, they needed a perimeter player capable of carrying the load.
Porter’s 8.2 points per game came on a loaded Warriors team that had two elite perimeter scorers in Steph Curry and Klay Thompson to go along with the rising Jordan Poole. If Porter comes off the bench, he will likely be given the greenest light imaginable considering Toronto’s issues in this area last season.
Otto Porter Jr. will help the Toronto Raptors on offense.
A career 40% shooter from 3-point range who saw his volume of shots cut into by Golden State’s skill, Toronto seems like an ideal spot for him at this stage of his career. Imagine if a player like Porter was on the floor in all the minutes taken up by Svi Mykhailiuk.
Porter has already proven that he can be an essential part of a championship team, further adding to the reservoir of winning DNA that permeates the Toronto roster. Porter can still get a bucket despite injuries and age, and the Raptors will count on him turning the bench around.
