Kevin Porter Jr.'s NBA career is surely over. It's only a matter of time before NBA commissioner Adam Silver drops the hammer on the Houston Rockets guard.

And although society is built upon getting second chances, Porter has had six or seven chances.

Enough is enough.

Porter has had two teams give up on his talent at this juncture, as the juice is not worth the squeeze. The Rockets are willing to part with future assets just to get rid of him and no one in their right mind would blame them.

The Rockets acquired him knowing that he had a checkered past, as they thought they'd be able to change him and help him become a model citizen. And considering what all they gave up to acquire him (top-55 second-round draft pick not likely to convey), it made sense.

The Rockets should trade Porter in a deal with the San Antonio Spurs

In the end, the Rockets got burned, as Porter faces second-degree assault, third-degree assault, and second-degree strangulation charges -all of which are felonies. 

Any team that trades for the troubled guard will be releasing him immediately thereafter, giving respective teams the opportunity to offload their worst deals in exchange for draft compensation. This could be appealing, as it's much better than being forced to waive-and-stretch such players and eat the long-term guaranteed money. 

The San Antonio Spurs should strongly consider such a move.
