Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

Porter was born Nov. 15, 1999 in Columbia, Missouri. Porter has seven siblings. His mother, Lisa played college basketball at Iowa while his father, Michael Sr., played collegiately at New Orleans. Like his older brother, Michael, he began his high school career playing for the Father Tolton Regional Catholic High School in Columbia. As a freshman, he averaged 11.8 points and 7.8 rebounds per game, and as a sophomore, he won the Missouri Class 3 State Championship. After that, he attended Nathan Hale High School in Washington state, where they went a perfect 29-0 in his time there and won the Washington Class 3A State Championship. During that time, Porter averaged 14.3 points and 13.6 rebounds. After high school, Porter played at Missouri as a freshman before missing his sophomore season due to injury and then declaring for the 2019 NBA Draft. As a freshman, he averaged 9.9 points, 6.8 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.7 blocks. As a result, he was named SEC Sixth-Man of the Year. Porter attended Missouri for his freshman season, earning 2017-18 SEC Sixth Man of the Year Award honors. He appeared in 33 games and made seven starts, averaging 9.9 points and leading the team in rebounding (6.8 per game) and blocks (55 total). He registered three double-doubles. His 326 points were the eighth-most all-time by a Tiger freshman. His 224 rebounds were fifth-most by a Tiger freshman. His 55 blocks were third-most by a Mizzou freshman. Over the team's final three regular-season games, he averaged 21.0 points, which included a career-high 24-point performance at Vanderbilt on Feb. 27 -- an effort that helped the team secure its first NCAA Tournament big since 2012-13.

Receives lifetime ban
CFree Agent
April 17, 2024
The NBA announced Wednesday that Porter has received a lifetime ban for violating the league's gaming rules, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Commissioner Adam Silver suggested last week that a lifetime ban from the NBA was on the table for Porter, and the league officially confirmed the punishment Wednesday. Per a press release from the NBA, Porter "disclosed confidential information about his own health status to an individual he knew to be an NBA bettor" and limited his playing time to impact his prop bets in at least one Raptors game. Porter also placed at least 13 bets on NBA games between January and March of 2024, although none of the wagers involved a game in which Porter played. The league's investigation remains open, but Porter will be permanently barred from playing in the league.

May face lifetime ban from NBA
CToronto Raptors
Personal
April 11, 2024
NBA commissioner Adam Silver said Wednesday that Porter (personal), who is under investigation by the league following multiple instances of betting irregularities over the past several months, could face a permanently ban from the league if the investigation finds that the 24-year-old had any involvement in the increased betting interest surrounding his prop bets earlier in the season, Tim Bontemps of ESPN.com reports. "I have an enormous range of discipline available to me," Silver said. "But it's a cardinal sin, what he's accused of in the NBA, and the ultimate, extreme option I have is to ban him from the game. Because there's nothing more serious, I think, around this league when it comes to gambling: betting on our games. And that is a direct player involvement. And so, the investigation is ongoing, but the consequences could be very severe."

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Defensive force
CFree Agent
July 19, 2023
Porter averaged 5.4 points, 4.6 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 2.0 blocks in 13.4 minutes per game while appearing in all five of Chicago's Summer League contests.
ANALYSIS
Porter racked up 10 blocks and five steals in just 67 total minutes. Although efficiency -- 42.3 percent shooting from the field -- was a concern, Porter actually improved after shooting just 35.3 percent from the field in 17 games with Milwaukee's G League affiliate last season. For Wisconsin, Porter's calling cards were his 11.4 rebounds and 2.7 blocks per game over that span. Speculatively, he likely profiles as a popular name in G League circles, but he could also opt to seek a larger payday overseas.
