1. Miami Heat
The Heat play a very similar style to Toronto, albeit with some better postseason results over the last few years. As a result, the Heat could target a player like Porter. If Jaime Jaquez is either traded or not ready to contribute as a rookie, OPJ might be a solid backup small forward.
While Miami is clearly focused on landing Damian Lillard, they could get the Raptors on the horn after most of the legwork is done. As part of a smaller, separate deal or an ancillary part of the Lillard mega move, the Heat could find some way to help Porter start anew in Miami.
Will the Miami Heat acquire Otto Porter Jr?
The Heat not only have a history of adding players who could defend multiple positions, but they also have shown to take marginal role players and make them someone who could contribute to a championship team. Porter might become a “Heat Culture” All-Star very quickly.
Porter needs to be in a very specific role to make the most use of his talents, and the Raptors may not be able to do that in what looks like a very chaotic year. The relative stability of Erik Spoelstra’s Heat could give both parties a fresh start apart from one another.
