NBA Mock Draft Pick #22 - Kevin Porter Jr., Guard, USC

SB Nation’s Boston Celtics blog CelticsBlog explains the pick:

The Celtics 3rd pick is a 3rd bite at the apple so we might as well swing for the fences. Porter has the dreaded “questions about approach to the game” label and comparisons to JR Smith (ew). However, he has lottery talent and represents good value at this point in the draft. In the right situation he can provide outside shooting and dynamic scoring.
