The Cleveland Cavaliers have agreed to trade 2019 first-round draft pick Kevin Porter Jr. to the Houston Rockets for a heavily protected future second-round pick, sources told ESPN on Thursday.

Sources told ESPN's Brian Windhorst that the Cavaliers decided to trade or waive Porter after a screaming match with team officials on Friday night, when he attended his first game of the season.

The pick is top-55 protected, meaning it is likely to never convey, sources said.
