I like Porter because he's the best SF available in the draft and it's a position we really need to get more athletic at. If he doesn't develop an outside shot it could really hurt his game and limit him. I'm not sure we're going to draft high enough to get him either. It may take a top 3 pick to land him. Who knows though.
I think his outside shot is strong in two regards,
1. He shoots 43% from behind the arc and easily has NBA 3pt range
2. He doesn't fall in love with the 3pt shot, so he isn't going to be jacking them up. I think he will be open a lot more in the NBA than he is in college, especially with Monroe and Drummond up front...
In my opinion he is one of the better shooters from deep in this draft without heavily relying on it
