Fresh off of winning a championship with the Golden State Warriors, Porter seems to be heading North of the border. He’s a career 40-percent 3-point shooter, and he’s a versatile defender capable of guarding across the positional spectrum. At this point, he’s a 3-D veteran, but that’s certainly something the Raptors can use. There are lots of young talents that need developmental touches on the roster. It looks like with the Mid-Level Exception, Masai Ujiri and Bobby Webster went the other direction and signed another vet to help stabilize spacing and offer competence with every minute on the floor.
We’ll have lots more analysis in the coming hours and days, but for now it looks like barring any massive trades or other surprises, Toronto’s offseason is likely done. They re-signed Chris Boucher and Thad Young, drafted Christian Koloko, and have signed Otto Porter jr. Extremely solid, if not splashy.
