Kevin Porter Jr. Reaches Plea Deal On Assault, Harassment Charges 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Jan 23, 2024 6:41 pm

Kevin Porter Jr. reached a plea deal in a Manhattan court Tuesday in the case involving his former girlfriend and WNBA player Kysre Gondrezick.


Porter has agreed to reckless assault in the third degree, a misdemeanor, and harassment in the second degree, a violation. 


"The resolution will allow Mr. Porter to put this incident, which involved false felony allegations and false facts, behind him with no criminal record and move forward," Porter's lawyers said in a statement.


Porter was arrested for an alleged attack on Gondrezick at the Millennium Hilton on Sept. 11 in New York.


Gondrezick told the New York Post in October that Porter "didn't hit me," saying allegations that he beat her were not true.


In October, Porter was traded by the Houston Rockets to the Oklahoma City Thunder and subsequently waived.

Yea if I'm a GM I'm not paying him anything. We've already seen who he is as a player, and these off the court distractions will continue to happen most likely.

I think a veteran team that needs a scorer off their bench will consider him. A rebuilding team definitely should stay away from him.

No one is considering him this season.

Gotta wait for the PR hit to subside some, like Miles Bridges.

He’s getting his full salary this season.

He’s guaranteed $1 million next season from OKC. Someone will sign him to a guaranteed minimum.

I'm not sure but my guess is with him being young & fairly talented someone gives him another chance on a min deal at least
