Source: Cavs trading Porter Jr. to Rockets for pick

The Houston Rockets are acquiring Cleveland Cavaliers wing Kevin Porter Jr. for a future protected second-round pick, a source told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Cleveland was looking to trade Porter following an incident last week that involved a screaming match with team officials, sources confirmed to ESPN.

Porter hasn’t played for Cleveland this season and has largely been away from the team for what has been termed personal reasons. He was working his way back and attended his first game Friday night when the Cavs beat the New York Knicks.

That night, however, he had a screaming match with team officials after his locker was moved to an auxiliary area to accommodate new teammate Taurean Prince, who arrived from the Brooklyn Nets with Jarrett Allen in a trade last week. After the episode, Porter was told to clean out his locker and other members of the roster were informed he’d no longer be on the team, sources said.

The Athletic first reported the incident with Porter.

The team picked up an option in Porter’s contract last month; he has one year at $1.7 million left on his deal.

Porter, 20, had a promising rookie season for the Cavs in 2019-20, averaging 10.0 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 50 games.

ESPN’s Brian Windhorst contributed to this report.
