Kevin Porter Jr. News

Kevin Porter quickly went from being a future star with the Cavaliers to part of their past. Cleveland completed its trade with Houston on Friday, sending Porter to the Rockets for a second-round draft pick, a deal the Cavs had no choice to make after running out of patience with a player they once viewed as a possible franchise cornerstone. The teams agreed to the swap on Thursday night, less than a week after Porter's outburst in Cleveland's locker room convinced the team it had to part with the 20-year-old.

"I wouldn't anticipate him playing in an NBA game relatively soon," said Silas, adding that the Rockets were working on a plan for Porter.

The Cavaliers are trading Kevin Porter Jr. to the Rockets for a heavily protected second-round pick, sources told ESPN.

Porter was the No. 30 overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft

The Cavs intend to cut ties with Kevin Porter Jr., either by trading or waiving the second-year player, following a screaming match with team officials, sources confirmed to ESPN.
