Bullets Forever on Otto Porter


We are past the point now of asking the question that Ben Standig was posed last year in regard to Otto, "Can he actually play?" Unlike last year, this year we can answer in the affirmative. Otto Porter has shown himself to be a competent NBA basketball player. He fits in well with the starters, as the lineup of Wall/Beal/Porter/Nene/Gortat outscores opponents by 5.6 per 100 possessions, just 2.2 points per 100 possessions worse than when Paul Pierce plays. At worst, he doesn't hurt and at best he can hit open shots and make smart plays without being asked to bear too much of the offensive burden.

Bullets Forever is ranking the trade value of the current Wizards' roster and Otto checks in at #8.
