Porter played two seasons at Georgetown, averaging 16.2 points per game his sophomore season and shooting 42.2 percent from three-point range. The impressive long-range shooting was the most stark improvement from his freshman year. On the court, he's wise beyond his years, knowing how to put himself in position to make the highest possible impact every possession.
He could bulk up a bit and isn't too imposing physically, but that's never stopped him in the past. Porter has still been known to take over games down the stretch for Georgetown and exhibits poise in even the toughest spots.
With John Wall and Bradley Beal in the backcourt and likely having the ball in their hands for much of the time, the Wizards immediately have a player who's capable of contributing in other ways. Porter's ability to move well off the ball should complement the backcourt duo, and he'll provide length and excellent perimeter defense.
His high basketball IQ and personality will help Porter fit in with Washington's push to develop a positive locker room culture. His coachability should help him develop into a good player quite quickly, and with Martell Webster a free agent, Porter may have the opportunity to develop on the fly.
And as a Georgetown product, Porter comes in as a known commodity by the Washington, D.C., community.
