Who Is Otto Porter of NBA? Here’s Everything You Need To Know

Otto Porter is one of those basketball players who don’t just come by every day. He plays in the NBA for the Washington Wizards and has been with the team since making his debut in 2013. After enjoying a very successful high school and college career, he has gone on to become a great player in the NBA where he plays as a small forward.

Who Is Otto Porter Of NBA? Bio

Otto Porter Jr. was born on June 3, 1993, in St. Louis, to the family of Otto Porter Sr. and Elnora Porter. The small forward was brought up alongside his siblings Jeffrey and Brittany Porter.

With a father who played high school basketball as well as his uncles; Melvin Porter, Jerry Porter, Marcus Timmons, all being involved in the sport, it was almost only natural that he was cut out for the sport. What is, even more, is that his mother who bought him his first basketball even before he could walk also played the same sport and was even named all-state in 1985.

Otto Porter went to Scott County Central High School where he played basketball and from there, he moved to Georgetown University where he played for the Hoyas. In his final season before entering the 2013 NBA Draft, Porter made the final list for Naismith Trophy and Wooden Award and was named the Big East Player of the Year.

He got selected in the draft by the Washington Wizards as the third overall pick before going on to sign his first contract with the team in July 2013. Having proved himself in the NBA, the Brooklyn Nets made a move for him with an offer of a four-year deal at $106.5 million, but the Wizards matched the offer and retained the star player who as at the end of the 2017/2018 season, already had a career average of 4.9 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 1.1 steals, .4 blocks, and 10.5 points per game.

Basketball Playing Family

As stated, Otto Porter Jr.is from a basketball-loving family, with many members of the family being involved in the sports. When he was just 8, his mother taught him how to shoot and how to position his hands and focus on the rim. Since his father had work to do, he trained him over the weekends while his mother took charge during the week.

His father played for Scott County Central High School where he set a rebound record of 1733 which is yet to be broken.

Dating and Relationships

One part of his life that has remained a mystery and almost completely hidden to the outside world is his dating life. There is no record on whether he is married or not or if he has a girlfriend somewhere. It was once rumored that he was dating a transgender woman, Morgan West, but as it would turn out, there was no substance to the report.

He has been sighted with a number of women in the past, but there has been no confirmation on whether or not he is dating any.

Body Stats

Just as you would expect of a basketball player, Otto Porter is a man who has a very good height and an athletic build. The small forward has a height of ‎6 feet 8 inches (206 cm) and a body weight of 198 lbs (90 kg).

Inasmuch as there is no denying the fact that he has the skills in his bloodline and was sharpened by both his father and mother, one of the things that have helped him to become as good as he is on the court is his good body build.

Otto Porter, Jr. was named by Forbes as one of the world’s highest-paid athletes of 2017. Taking home a salary of $24.8 million, Porter has a net worth that is estimated at well over $10 million.
