    Porter, a 2019 first-round draft pick, faces charges of improperly handling firearms in a vehicle, according to Mahoning County sheriff records. He was released on $4,000 bond.

    Porter's attorney, Alex Spiro, said in an email to the Associated Press that his client "was issued a summons for a petty offense and released. We are gathering information and will have further comment at a later point."

    The 20-year-old Porter emerged as a bright spot last season for the Cavs, whose year included a coaching change after the All-Star break before being halted by the coronavirus pandemic. He averaged 10 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 50 games.

    Cleveland selected him with the No. 30 overall pick.
