Wizards summer league: Watching the versatility of Otto Porter
Otto Porterís versatility may be his biggest asset on the basketball court. His ability to shoot from the midrange, handle the ball, create for others and defend multiple positions is what helped elevate him to the third overall pick in last Juneís draft. And during NBA summer league in Las Vegas, the Wizards plan to test Porter and see exactly what he is capable of doing on the floor.
In his debut on Saturday against the Golden State Warriors, the wiry, 6-foot-9 Porter got the start at shooting guard during the Wizardsí 56-52 loss at Cox Pavilion on the campus of UNLV. Porter seemed fine with the role initially, as he buried his first two jumpers, but he struggled offensively the rest of the game, missing nine of his last 10 shots, with two driving layups getting rejected.
