In what could mark a historic moment for PAOK, reports indicate that the Greek basketball club is on the verge of securing NBA talent Kevin Porter Jr. before the season's end. According to sources close to the matter, prominent NBA insider Sams Charania has revealed that PAOK is in advanced talks to sign the 24-year-old guard.

Porter, who most recently played for the Houston Rockets, showcased his prowess on the court during the previous season, averaging impressive statistics of 19.2 points, 5.3 rebounds, 5.7 assists, and 1.4 steals per game in his 34 minutes of play. However, his career took a tumultuous turn last September when he faced legal troubles after being arrested for domestic violence against his partner. Consequently, he lost a lucrative four-year, $63 million contract he had inked with the Rockets in October 2022.

Despite the setbacks, Porter's potential as a player remains undeniable. Throughout his NBA career spanning 196 games, he has maintained solid averages of 15.3 points, 5 assists, and 4.3 rebounds per game.

PAOK's pursuit of Porter represents a significant move for the club, signaling its ambition to compete at the highest level. As negotiations progress, fans eagerly anticipate the formalisation of what could be a game-changing signing for PAOK Basketball.
