The Bulls’ don’t have many options with Porter, actually, the only is to play him for the final season of his contract and move on in 2021-22. Whether that’s with Chandler Hutchinson or Denzel Valentine, which both seem unlikely, they will have a new small forward after next season.
There are draft targets they could go after in 2020 to replace Porter Jr. after one season such as Deni Avidja of Maccabi Tel Aviv, Obi Toppin of Dayton, Isaac Okoro of Auburn, or Devin Vassell of Florida State.
Vassell provides the most similar Three-and-D style to Porter Jr.’s and likely be a backend lottery pick while the other three should be locks for the top-10.
As a Bull, Porter Jr. averages 14.8 points, 4.5 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 1.1 steals, and 2.1 made three-pointers per game on 44.3 percent from deep, 81.3 percent from the free-throw line, and 46.6% from the field in 29 games. Those are solid numbers, but not worth $27-28 million considering rookie Coby White put up similar numbers coming off the bench for 64 of 65 games.
