Kevin Porter Jr. – RGV Vipers
Kevin Porter Jr is an exciting prospect who was drafted 30th overall in the 2019 Draft.
Unfortunately, Porter Jr has been traded by the Cleveland Cavaliers this year though, after they fell out recently. Porter Jr is now on the Houston Rockets, and has joined their G-league affiliate.
Porter is a six-foot-four wing who had a strong rookie year who had 50 games off the bench, as he averaged 10 points, 3 rebounds and 2 assists.
Porter is a talented wing who can pass, shoot and score, while also guarding multiple positions. Still just 20-years-old, he has a big future in the league if he can get on court and continue working on his game.
Jontay Porter – Memphis Hustle
Jontay Porter is the younger brother of up and coming Denver Nuggets forward, Michael Porter Jr.
Like his brother, Jontay has had terrible injury issues that have stalled his promising career.
He went undrafted in 2019 after knee injuries hurt his potential lottery pick stock, and he is now a project player for the Memphis Grizzlies.
Porter isn’t the shooter his brother is, but he has similar size at six-foot-eleven. He has modern-day big man skills though, being able to defend, shoot and pass.
He will suit up for the Grizzlies, G-League affiliate, the Memphis Hustle.
Aleksej Pokusevski ( OKC Blue )
Aleksej Pokusevski is a seven-foot power forward who was drafted 17th by the Oklahoma City Thunder in the 2020 Draft.
” Poku ” as he is nicknamed, is a new age forward, who can put the ball on the floor, shoot and defend the rim.
Because of his terribly small 190-pound frame and raw skillset, he has been sent down to the G-League to work on his skills, while his body develops in the weight room.
Poku is from Serbia, and has played professionally until he was drafted into the NBA.
As a top 20 pick, he is one of many assets that OKC General Manager Sam Presti has gathered as he rebuilds the franchise. He will play for OKC Blue in the G-League bubble.
Malachi Flynn (Raptors 905)
Malachi Flynn was drafted 29th by the Toronto Raptors in the 2021 draft. After three years in college at both Washington and San Diego State, Flynn was selected as a heat up quick scorer who plays the point guard position.
Already 22, Flynn’s offensive game needs to come on relatively quickly to aid a team at the NBA level. He is a great defender, but needs to show the ability to run an offense off the Raptors bench.
As a shooter, Flynn hit a healthy 36 percent from three in his years in the NCAA.
He will suit for the Raptors 905 in the Bubble.
