2. Otto Porter Jr. ($6.3 million)
Porter went from one of the more impressive Raptors external free agent signings in club history to a player that no one wants in any sort of trade and a fringe rotation player. While he showed he could be a nice role player with the champion Warriors, he never got to shine in Toronto.
Porter played in just eight games last season, and his injury problems again managed to pop up. With the addition of Gradey Dick in the NBA Draft and Jalen McDaniels in free agency, it will be tough to envision a way in which Porter can get on the field and unleash his 3-point shot.
Otto Porter Jr. might be frozen out by the Toronto Raptors.
Porter can still be an effective player if he is fully healthy, but the Raptors should not expect him to contribute much of anything this season, barring some players ahead of him getting hurt. Trading him is a possibility, but his value is as low as it has been at any point in his professional career.
As it stands right now, Porter is a reserve player who will not move the needle one iota in the upcoming season. It’s sad to see a hyped free agent come to this almost immediately after arriving in Toronto, but he has an uphill battle to get off this infamous list.
