“Mr. Porter was issued a summons for a petty offense and released. We are gathering information and will have further comment at a later point,” Porter’s attorney Alex Shapiro said in a statement.
The Cavaliers acquired Porter a few days after the 2019 NBA Draft was officially completed. He was selected No. 30 overall by the Milwaukee Bucks before a slew of trades landed him in Cleveland.
