Wizards coach Scott Brooks said Wednesday that there will be “healthy competition” at small forward this season.
Brooks is essentially hinting that Otto Porter might not be a lock to start at SF, despite the step forward he took last year. Kelly Oubre is the other obvious candidate on the roster. “We also have some younger players who are coming into camp,” Brooks said. “I’d like [Porter and Oubre] to take a step in the right direction and they should.” Porter has the inside track to start after finishing as a solid mid round value last season.
