Kings said to be eyeing Porter Jr. with No. 2 pick in draft

Before the 2017-18 college basketball season tipped off, Missouri freshman Michael Porter Jr. was all but a consensus pick to be selected with the No. 1 overall choice.

However, a back injury sabotaged Porter’s one season with the Tigers and though he returned to play in the postseason, his draft status appeared to take a hit.

Not with the Sacramento Kings, apparently, though, according to Sam Amick of USA Today.

Porter Jr., Luka Doncic and Marvin Bagley III will be in play for Sacramento with the No. 2 overall selection, according to Amick, assuming the Phoenix Suns select Arizona center Deandre Ayton with the first overall choice.
