Adjust Comment Print

All the chatter and pre-Draft workouts lead us to an updated mock draft, so here we go with 3.0!

Porter dropping to the late lottery would be a noteworthy turn of events for a player rated so highly in his high school class.

Porter being considered as a top five pick truly displays the potential teams see in him, especially without proving himself to be a dominant college basketball player this past season. However, there are still some concerns about his health.

The MRI was done after Porter suffered hip spasms and his pro day workout had to be cancelled. The injured prospect just can't seem to catch a break. Before his college career began, Porter was largely considered the top prospect for the draft but that was before he lost almost his entire freshman season to injuries.

The report did not examine or make any conclusions about the continuing special counsel investigation. And its existence was a dominate thread of the 2016 presidential campaign.

Despite his lack of playing time, Porter is expected to be one of the first seven players selected in the draft, with some reports suggesting the Sacramento Kings are considering him with the #2 overall pick.

Goodman listed Porter's character as a question mark for National Basketball Association teams, which caused a good deal of negative reaction from Mizzou fans. They're reportedly bringing in Wendell Carter Jr. from Duke for an individual workout.

The NBA draft will be held on Thursday, June 21.
