Sacramento Kings reportedly giving real consideration to Michael Porter at No. 2

The Sacramento Kings reportedly are giving real consideration to drafting Michael Porter Jr. with the No. 2 overall pick later this month.

Porter was set to work out in Chicago on Friday in front of multiple teams, including the Suns, Kings and Knicks, according to The Ringer’s Kevin O’Connor. But that workout was cancelled.

USA Today’s Sam Amick says that workout will be rescheduled. Amick notes there’s a “very real chance” the Kings would take Porter with the No. 2 pick.

Porter was a top recruit but only played in parts of three games for Missouri last season. He injured his back in the Tigers’ first game and needed surgery. He recovered in time to play the team’s final two games but was not at 100 percent.

Teams interested in taking him will obviously have questions about his back. Porter has not lost confidence in himself and says he is the best player in the draft.
