The Michael Porter Jr. Trade Proposal
The San Antonio Spurs will receive Michael Porter Jr.
The Denver Nuggets will receive Devonte Graham, Reggie Bullock, Doug McDermott, and a 2024 First-round draft pick (Protected by the top 6 via Toronto Raptors).
Zach Buckley is a well-recognized NBA writer from Bleacher Report. He has proposed a trade between the Nuggets and Spurs to trade Michael Porter Jr.
“With generational prospect Victor Wembanyama in the fold and about a million draft picks to their name, the Spurs should see limitless opportunities in front of them.”
“They will probably keep patient for now until they see how quickly the No. 1 pick can ascend to stardom, but if they see signs of that launch being imminent, they should be on the lookout for long-term building blocks to slot around the 19-year-old.”
Buckley further added in his column:
“Porter would be a fun target, especially if San Antonio thinks it could help the 25-year-old grow his game.He needs plenty of work with his distributing and defensive consistency, but the outline of a 6’10”, three-level scorer is very much visible. Fit him in a nucleus with Wembanyama, Jeremy Sochan and Devin Vassell, and that’s a group with endless size, enviable length and just about every skill in the book.”
