Otto Porter Jr.
If anyone has understood the assignment with Draymond Green out, it’s Otto Porter. Shaping up to be one of the best offseason signings last summer, the veteran 3-and-D threat has been everything Golden State needs.
Porter is looking like an absolute steal for the Warriors. He’s averaging 13.0 points and 6.2 rebounds on close to 60 percent shooting from the floor and 45.0 percent from the 3-point line in his five games as a starter in place of Draymond.
Not only does Porter provide consistent shot-making and high-IQ passing but he’s also a sturdy defender. The frontcourt of Andrew Wiggins, Kevon Looney and Porter is a brutal one for opponents to score on.
To no surprise, this trio, along with the Splash Brothers, has been head and shoulders the best five-man lineup in the entire NBA (min 100 minutes). As long as Draymond is on the sideline, you can expect Porter to keep racking up heavy minutes.
