June 30, 2013Friday the National Basketball Association's Washington Wizards officially welcomed former Georgetown standout Otto Porter to the fold. After having drafted Porter with the third overall pick, the Wizard's management braintrust, including coach Randy Whittman and general manager Ernie Grunfeld presented him to the press.
From a Hoya perspective, head coach John Thompson III was joined by sports information director Mex Carey. Thompson's dad, hall of fame coach John Thompson, Jr. was also in the house.
