Somehow I read that very wrong. In that case the that deal is fine. However, if Porter proves his small sample from Chicago where he showed he could lead a team to a .500 record then OKC would be in terrible shape. Too good to get the 3rd player with their own picks, although the Miami pick would have a chance at giving them that shot. The best case would be to flip Porter. It really would only be useful if the plan was to flip Porter. Otherwise OKC stays in purgatory being too good to bottom out and short on talent to be a contender. Same place they have been and still are.
It really depends on if you think Atlanta's 1st and some mediocre prospects plus the return on Porter is more than you could get from moving CP3 and Adams separately after the season starts. It also has to do with rather or not Presti is even willing to move Adams at this point and not keep him as the Nick Collison type for this new team. Given the length of Adams' contract and how much center contract values have dropped the last few years I think Presti plans on keeping Adams on a MLE sized deal with the next contract which would price him right.
