Porter has yet to play a single game in his second season in Cleveland as he’s been dealing with personal issues and is away from the team. However, he’s been keeping busy with on-court work with Portland Trail Blazers forward Carmelo Anthony.
Although Porter didn’t make headlines like Zion Williamson or Ja Morant as a top-flight rookie last year, the University of Southern California product is a promising young player on the rise if he can get his act together.
The fact that Porter is staying active and on the court during this hiatus period is a good sign. The top priority for the Cavs moving forward with Porter is hoping he focuses on basketball and stays out of trouble off the floor.
The Cavs may have a promising future with their young core coming together. Whether Porter will be a valuable part of that future in Cleveland remains to be seen.
