The Houston Rockets are actively trying to trade guard Kevin Porter Jr. following his felony assault and strangulation charges related to an alleged attack on his girlfriend, according to sources from The Athletic.

The Rockets are reaching out to multiple teams and offering draft picks as an incentive to take Porter, who is under a four-year, $82.5 million contract with a guaranteed $15.9 million for the 2023-24 season.

In these trade scenarios, the Rockets aim to use Porter’s salary to acquire a player currently under contract who can contribute immediately. The Rockets are exploring various options for Porter’s future, maintaining flexibility.
