Kevin Porter Jr. is an explosive athlete and talented scorer with ideal size and skills for the NBA. He can score from three levels and with either hand, making him tough to guard one on one. Porter is a 5-star recruit who is moving up boards.
- Has big time athletic ability and can really get off the floor
- Scoring ability – from three levels
- Can hit the three point shot and get his own shot off the dribble
- A talented ball-handler who can get into the lane and use his quick step and explosive leaping ability to score in traffic
- Has nice handles and finishing ability with either hand (shoots lefty but does a lot with his right hand too)
- Well built with a lot of natural strength – has ideal SG size
- Can bring the house down with his dunking ability
- Doesn’t always move to the ball well and needs to do a better job of getting his teammates involved
- Can try to make the highlight reel pass instead of simply moving the ball
- Needs to get more consistent with his intensity level and bring it every possession, on both ends of the floor
- He’s like a mix of Justise Winslow and Lonnie Walker.
