The Houston Rockets were rumored to be in contract discussions with Kevin Porter Jr. this during the offseason and with just a few days left before the season opener, a 4-year deal was agreed upon for $82.5 million.


Kevin Porter Jr's time with the Rockets hasn't been perfect and there have been some issues on and off the court. The fact the Rockets negotiated the deal to give themselves protection if things go sideways, should ease the concerns of Rockets fans. Multiple sources are reporting that only the first year of the deal is guaranteed.

Kevin Porter Jr. averaged over 15/PPG last season for the Rockets, and looks to be an important young piece for the franchise moving forward.

Up next: The Houston Rockets begin their season this Wednesday against the Atlanta Hawks.
