Cavaliers To Trade Or Waive Kevin Porter Jr.

Jan 18, 2021 1:36 PM

The Cleveland Cavaliers will trade or waive Kevin Porter Jr. following a screaming match with team officials on Friday.

Porter was upset that his locker was moved to an auxiliary area to accommodate Taurean Prince.

Porter was told to clean out his locker and other members of the roster were informed he'd no longer be on the team.

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

Porter was arrested on Nov. 15 after a middle-of-the-night crash when he flipped his Mercedes SUV. In October, Porter raised alarms when he posted a black square on his Instagram with the message "Do you ever wish to see the end of your time?" After Cavs officials and teammates reached out, Porter deleted his Instagram account.
