After nine years in the league, Otto Porter is now an NBA champion. The 29-year-old is no star but there's no denying that he played a key role for the Golden State Warriors in their recent championship quest.
It's going to be a very interesting summer for Porter now that his contract has come to an end. The former third overall pick is set to become a free agent and it remains to be seen if the Warriors are going to offer him an extension. If you ask Porter, however, he would love to stay in Golden State:
“I do know this team can compete for another championship. And I think it would be a great opportunity if I can stay here,” Porter said, via Kendra Andrews of ESPN. “It would be an amazing to be here with this group of guys again and do it all over again.”

Porter was inserted into the starting lineup for the last two games of the Finals against the Boston Celtics. He did not play a whole lot, but he was effective during his limited run on the floor. That's pretty much been the case for Porter since he joined the Warriors last summer, and it would not be surprising if the team decides to run it back with him next season.
