You are correct. He is not 7'1 and 300 lbs. He is 7'0 and 290 lbs (at least the last I heard) and unbelievably sculpted.
To answer your question: NO
. In the case of the suggested trade you are trading potential for potential. That’s a wash. A more feasible trade for Oden would involve potential for known talent – Paul, Williams, etc – which I still would not do.
