PICK #3: OTTO PORTER JR.

Cohen’s Analysis: Porter missed the first month of the season with a hip injury and since his return hasn’t been getting too much playing time. The Wizards are desperately trying to climb up in the Eastern Conference this year and don’t seem willing to give their rookie on-the-job training. For now, Trevor Ariza and Martell Webster are more reliable and proven options, which means it can take a while before we see any major strides from Porter.

BOLD PREDICTION: This may be another case of a player getting displaced from a team because of different agendas. Washington believes it is currently the third best team in a weak conference and as a result of that is not going to risk a high playoff seed for future gains. It wouldn’t shock me if Porter were on the trade block at some point. He needs to be part of a rebuilding project while the Wizards need more depth and experience.
