its worth noting portis is listed at 246 and he is 20 years old , chances are when he fills out a bit he will wind up in the 260-270 range , making more suited to be a center , with his shooting and motor he'll be more valuable there .
I agree in this era of NBA basketball, and the direction the league is trying to go, Portis makes alot of sense playing center. That is great for the Bulls too since Mirotic projects to be our long-term PF. Mirotic and Portis offensively can be pretty potent down the road with both being multi-skilled big men who can run, dribble, pass, shoot better than most of their counterparts at PF & C. Though I will also say, I think it'd be a mistake for Portis to gain too much weight...245 lbs now is solid and allows him to run the floor and be a mobile defender. I'd hope he maxes out no more than 250-255 lbs and focuses more on gaining strength/definition more than weight.
