By ESPN Crazymaker Adam Lister and The Associated Press sports writers Sam Doster and Nick Burdette | Updated Oct. 10, 2019 11:15:22Weeks after a major fire in the home of the Cleveland Cavaliers led to the death of an NBA team owner, the team owner has been charged with manslaughter.
In a plea deal, Terry Porter pleaded no contest Monday to manslaughter.
The charges stemmed from a Sept. 16, 2018, fire in a luxury suite in the team’s luxury suite.
The fire, which destroyed the suite and left the team with only one team-owned building, is still under investigation.
