While he was playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers, he had legal problems. He was accused of committing a violent crime against a female and of flipping a car with a firearm while driving. Porter was cleared of all charges in the second incident. After a temper-tantrum early in 2021, however, the Cavs sold him to the Rockets.

The juice is not worth it.
