Porter recorded 19 points (6-20 FG, 4-12 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 12 assists, five rebounds, one steal and one block over 37 minutes in Sunday's 125-114 loss to the Blue. Porter was slightly less efficient from the floor Sunday than he was in Saturday's win over Long Island, but he posted a double-double against Oklahoma City. The 20-year-old should continue to play a significant role for Rio Grande Valley as a G League starter.
Porter tallied 29 points (11-21 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five assists, four rebounds and two blocks over 37 minutes in Saturday's 105-90 win over Long Island. Porter has had a significant role as a starter over each of the first eight games of the season. He led the Vipers on the scoreboard Saturday and helped drive the offense with five assists. He's now averaging 22.8 points, 6.9 assists and 4.6 rebounds over 34.6 minutes per game this season.
Porter scored 25 points (9-19 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 2-3 FT) and added four assists, three rebounds, one steal and one block in 25 minutes of Wednesday's 132-105 G League loss to Raptors 905. Porter led the Vipers in scoring on the evening while falling just one minute shy of the team lead in playing time. He'll see abundant time on the court until he gets the call back to Houston.
Porter (personal) was assigned to the G League by the Rockets on Friday, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports. The 20-year-old was acquired from the Cavaliers last week, but he hasn't seen game action since joining the team. Porter sat out with Cleveland due to a personal matter before the trade, and he'll head to the G League bubble to get some playing time. He averaged 10.0 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 50 games as a rookie last year, so he could rejoin the Rockets and contribute later in the season.
The Cavaliers are finalizing a deal Thursday to send Porter (personal) to the Rockets for a future second-round pick, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. The 2019 first-round pick had yet for the Cavaliers this season due to a personal matter, but he rejoined the team last week. Shortly thereafter, Porter was involved in a conflict with team personnel, prompting the Cavaliers to put him on the trade block. Houston will take a chance on his talent for the small price of a future second-round pick, hoping the 20-year-old can become a part of their rebuilding effort. As a rookie with the Cavaliers last season, Porter averaged 10.0 points (on 44.2 percent shooting field), 3.2 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 1.1 triples and 0.9 steals across 23.2 minutes per contest.
