CLEVELAND (AP) — A person familiar with the deal tells The Associated Press the Cleveland Cavaliers have agreed to trade troubled forward Kevin Porter Jr. to the Houston Rockets for a future draft pick. The Cavs are sending Porter, a first-round pick two years ago who hasn’t played this season, to the Rockets for a protected second-round pick. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the trade has to be approved by the NBA. Porter’s days with the Cavs came to an end last week when he had an outburst in the team’s locker room. He had only just returned to the team after being away to attend to personal problems.
