Adrian Wojnarowski mentioned Michael Porter Jr. as one of the Nuggets’ “untouchable” players via trade.
He does share a first name with Michael Jordan, after all. For all of you dynasty leaguers out there, Porter Jr. remains a tepid hold given his significant knee issues, his uneven statistical profile and the fact that he is buried behind better players in Denver. This may be one of those cases where just because a player is young doesn’t mean that he holds upside. That said, Porter Jr. has some tools in his offensive arsenal and he has, very sporadically, put some good moments on tape this season. The Nuggets envision him as an eventual combo forward to take over for the likes of Will Barton, Paul Millsap and Jerami Grant in the future, but the jury is still out on whether he is even a better player than Juancho Hernangomez at this stage.
