Charges from Kevin Porter Jr.'s arrest on Nov. 15 have been dropped, his lawyer Alex Spiro told ESPN. 

The Cavaliers guard faced charges of improperly handling firearms in a motor vehicle, per Cleveland.com's Chris Fedor, after flipping his Mercedes SUV on an interstate just south of Cleveland. A loaded .45-caliber handgun was found along with a small amount of marijuana. 

A grand jury in Mahoning County decided not to indict Porter on a felony gun charge, and the misdemeanor charges, which included marijuana possession and driving without a license, were also dismissed. 

Porter averaged 10 points in 50 games as a rookie last season, but he has reportedly not been at training camp due to personal reasons.
