   2017 NBA Manifesto

Bobby Portis
PF/C, 6’11, 230lbs, 22 years old, 2 years of experience

It has been an up and down NBA career for Portis thus far, but one which is trending upwards as he has started to find his role offensively. Portis is growing as a shooter and is a capable interior finisher, running the court well, showing decent handles and playing with some energy on that end. Conversely, his defensive awareness is consistently poor, routinely getting lost off the ball, and his offensive decision making must grow in conjunction with his skills on that end, with some better discipline on when to shoot. His long term projectability is tough to gauge, but he is worth playing going forwards. No more long bench stretches.

Player Plan: Two years of rookie scale salary remaining. Poor defensively and prone to moments of inattentiveness, but a decent rebounder and capable scorer with stretch potential he should be given the opportunity to realise.

It has been quite the start to the year for Portis, who is proving himself more capable of getting to the basket on the drive than most of the team’s backcourt and who is playing with obvious energy. Spotting up, posting up and going to the glass, Portis followed his 21 point, 13 rebound performance in his season debut with a 20/11 outing last night, and should be a definite theft of a pick until that price goes up.

Back from his season opening suspension, Portis returned with a bang, yielding 21 points, 13 rebounds, 4 assists and 40.6 fantasy points in his only game thus far. This of course will not continue. But something close to half of those numbers will, which, for this price, is very valuable.
