Surprise Team Signs Otto Porter Jr.

Playing his first relatively healthy season in four years, Otto Porter Jr. was a strong contributor to the Golden State Warriors' return to championship status this season, and now he's parlayed that into a two-year contract with the Toronto Raptors.

As noted by Yahoo's Chris Haynes, who broke the news, Porter Jr.'s wife is from Toronto, obviously factoring into the decision for him. At 6'8", and with a 7'1" wingspan, he fits right into the Raptor mold, becoming the 8th player on the roster to stand between 6'7" and 6'9" with a 7-foot wingspan, while playing solid defense.

He's an accomplished 3-point shooter, something the Raptors were also looking to improve upon. He shot 37% this season, and has a 40% mark for his career.

The Raptors are Porter's 5th team in the last six years, but injuries have played havoc with most of those seasons for the 29-year-old vet. He managed to play 63 games for the Warriors this past season, his most since 2018.
