He played with the Bullets from 1972-73 to 1974-75, then for the Pistons from 1975-76 to early in 1977-78, spent most of 1977-78 with the Nets, then went back to the Pistons for 1978-79, and finished up with the Bullets again from 1979-80 to 1982-83.

During those 11 seasons, Porter led the NBA in assists 4 times and at one time held the single game assist record, but never made an All Star Game and has largely been ignored historically.

Barely remember him.  My dad used to talk about how good he was.  I think he got into some fisticuffs with the Pistons coach (Herb Brown maybe?).

May I offer you some salt and vinegar chips?
