Monday morning, Adrian Wojnarowski broke the news that the Rockets and Kevin Porter Jr. agree to 4-year extension worth $82.5 million.

Porter is coming off a career-high 16.6 points per game while leading the NBA in catch-and-shoot 3P% after making the transition to becoming the team’s starting point guard.

Despite the tumultuous past Porter had with the Cleveland Cavaliers, general manager Rafael Stone traded a top-55 protected pick for the chance to turn things around for the young guard.

In a preseason interview, Porter noted that the Rockets‘ organization “saved [his] life”.

With the NBA salary cap spike incoming in the next few years, this deal is going to end up looking like a steal. Porter is better than a few role players in the league that garner this type of deal, if not more. The Rockets have a young core locked up for a few years, and have the potential to add one more piece in next summer’s draft.
