Same arena, different game: No 3 pick Porter picks up the tempo from Georgetown to Wizards

Otto Porter is learning a new gear.

The NBA's No. 3 overall draft pick has spent the last three days at the Washington Wizards minicamp soaking up the fast-paced game used by coach Randy Wittman.

It's quite a change from the Princeton-style offense Porter mastered when he played in the same arena under Georgetown coach John Thompson III.

Wittman said Thursday that Porter is having "a little bit of trouble" understanding that the Wizards want to run all the time.

Porter will get more experience in the offense in the upcoming Summer League games in Las Vegas.
