Only college players expected to attend National Basketball Association draft

18 June 2018

One of the biggest mysteries heading into the upcoming National Basketball Association draft is the stock of former Missouri player Michael Porter Jr.

Had he made it thru his entire freshman campaign without injury, there's a good chance Porter would be a lock for the top pick in the National Basketball Association draft but now there's doubt that he'll go with the first overall selection.

Most teams are cautious about the back injury and whether it might be a problem throughout Porter's career.

Porter's camp appears to feel comfortable with his stock.

Michael Porter Jr. might be the most tantalizing prospect available in next week's National Basketball Association draft and would fill a big need for the Kings.

West Texas Intermediate crude oil futures were down 0.2 per cent at US$66.76 per barrel; Brent was down 0.6 per cent at US$75.49. Italy's new populist government is a coalition between the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement and the anti-immigration League.

Porter could potentially rise even higher than that if workouts go well.

But after Porter's scheduled workout this week was canceled, injury questions persist with the draft quickly approaching next Thursday. He was cleared to play just two weeks before his June 8 pro day.

A slew of other potential lottery picks, including Villanova's Mikal Bridges, Missouri's Michael Porter Jr., Michigan State's Miles Bridges, Alabama's Collin Sexton, Duke's Wendell Carter and Kentucky's Kevin Knox also secured invites. Teams will be on hand for medical evaluations Friday afternoon.

"There doesn't appear to be anything wrong with him right now", one National Basketball Association executive told ESPN.com. Several NBA teams including the Knicks, Kings, and Suns were expected to attend and get a second look at him.
