English, a 6-6 guard who played at Missouri, averaged 3.2 points in 10 games with the Pistons.
Porter is a 6-7 forward who averaged 14.6 points and 7.3 rebounds as a senior at Auburn. He was drafted in the second round of the 2000 NBA draft by Golden State and played 51 games with the Warriors.
Porter has joined the team for tonight's game in Canton, Ohio.
