The Houston Rockets are attempting to trade Kevin Porter Jr. following his charges of felony assault and strangulation on his girlfriend.
Porter has the 2023-24 season guaranteed for $15.9 million in Year 1 of a four-year, $82.5 million deal. The subsequent years of the deal are not guaranteed.
The Rockets are offering draft compensation as an incentive to receive Porter in exchange for a player who can immediately help the team.
Porter is not expected to attend Rockets’ training camp in early October.
