Kevin Porter Jr. Traded to Oklahoma City Thunder and Set to be Waived


Summary: Houston Rockets have traded Kevin Porter Jr. and draft picks to the Oklahoma City Thunder, who will waive him immediately.

Kevin Porter Jr., whose future in the NBA is uncertain due to legal issues, has been traded by the Houston Rockets to the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Thunder will waive Porter Jr. as soon as the trade is approved by the league. This move comes after the Rockets learned of Porter Jr.’s arrest on domestic violence charges last month. In exchange for Porter Jr., the Rockets will receive Victor Oladipo and Jeremiah Robinson-Earl. Porter Jr. is owed almost $15.9 million for this season and an additional $1 million for next season. The Rockets had already informed Porter Jr. that he was not allowed to be part of the team after his arrest.
