Michael Porter Jr. may not have to wait long on June 21 to hear his name called by NBA commissioner Adam Silver.
There's a "very real chance" the Sacramento Kings will select Porter Jr. with their No. 2 overall pick in the draft, according to USA Today's Sam Amick.
With Arizona's DeAndre Ayton presumably going No. 1 to the Phoenix Suns, Sacramento seems to be looking at not only Porter Jr., but also European standout Luka Doncic and Duke forward Marvin Bagley.
Porter Jr. was widely considered the favorite to go first overall after a sensational run as a five-star recruit at Nathan Hale High School. A lower back injury suffered in the first half of his season opener with Missouri forced him to go under the knife, though, keeping him sidelined for all but three games as a college athlete.
He had a workout scheduled Friday in Chicago with many lottery teams set to be in attendance, but it was canceled. Those teams, however, have been informed it will be rescheduled, according to Amick.
