While the Cavs didn't win the draft lottery like they hoped they would when they traded for the No. 8 pick, this year's class is considered to be quite deep near the top.
"But Porter, the former top high school player in the US whose freshman season at Missouri this year was cut to three games by a back injury, may be off the board well ahead of the Cavs' slot", Vardon explained.
Several sources, ranging from National Basketball Association executive to agents to scouts, told cleveland.com that the Cavs would most likely draft Porter if they could.
"Right now, I would say I'm a mix of Giannis (Antetokounmpo) and KD (Kevin Durant)", he said. At 6'7, 196 pounds, Hutchinson is not as long as Porter Jr., but his ability to handle the ball up the floor and consistently hit the shot from mid-range draws parallels between the two.
Porter's odds of dropping all the way down to eivht are slim, as the Sacramento Kings, among other teams, are considering drafting him with their second overall pick. He's already shown a complete skillset - passing, dribbling, shooting - that would translate to playing basically anywhere except center.

Porter Jr.is no doubt a talent and will be drafted.
"It's a possibility", Porter told Cain. He returned for an SEC Tournament game against Georgia, then put up 16 points and 10 rebounds in Missouri's loss to Florida State in the NCAA Tournament. "I'm feeling good. I think the teams are comfortable, but I might get a couple workouts in".
One potential complication is the news that Huerter will need surgery to fix a torn ligament in his right hand, though that was known prior to the Draft Combine, and he still put on an impressive shooting display in front of Lakers head coach Luke Walton and others anyway.
Missouri freshman Michael Porter Jr. entered the college hoops season as one of the most prized prospects in the 2018 NBA Draft pool. "I don't need to go No. 1. I was just sore and I wanted to take a couple of days off".
