    Not many 19 year olds dropping 30 points in an NBA game, especially in a competitive game like the one highlighted in the above video. The kid has big time potential, which is all we can really realistically hope for from this team right now. We need John Lucas to basically adopt this kid and turn him into a man. I mean, that’s what John is for, right? Get after it!

    Bipolar fans. Btch and moan about harden being a diva, now celebrates acquiring a player who literally threw a tantrum via food when he got his locker moved.

    Nice pick-up for the price. He has good potential. But I'd still bet that he's out of the league in two years.

    No offense but i would have burnt down the stadium after what they did. They moved his locker to the auxiliary room. If that's not a sign that says go F yourself I don't know what is.

    This probably won't work out but it's worth a shot. Lucas has a better chance of getting through to him than just about anyone.

    For the folks who track this stuff with regards to Tilman, this is a deal where we added more salary than we sent out for what it's worth.

    So will this kid look more like Eddie Griffin or more like Royce White?

    Anyone know why he hasn't gotten any playing time this season? Is he injured?

    Weird that no one outbid us for him. I'm guessing more than a few teams would have been open to a player like Porter even with the issues.

    My guess? There were probably a few mildly better offers (top-50 protected maybe), but they sent him to us due to them feeling like they got a very good deal for Jarrett Allen. Far fetched, maybe, but its a guess.

    My guess is Cleveland wanted to do right by him and send him here due to Lucas' reputation.

    Yeah but it’s not like it puts us over the luxury so he gets no points for this who cares.

    You guys are really giving these organizations too much credit in terms of trying to look out for a non-sentimental player over getting the best value they can to improve their organization ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
