It was reported 3 days ago that Boston,Chicago,Dallas and Orlando all like to aqcuire Gortat.
Let's see what Every team could offer Phoenix. From and outsiders pov looking in, Gortat would be the best fit to Dallas.
He and Dirk are great together,with Marion,Mayo and collison.
Not sure what they would offer Phoenix, getting Gortat means they are trying to compete,so Marion is likely to stay. I could see them offering expirings like VC,dahntay jones and Beabois, in addition to one or two of their draft picks (crowder,james,cunningham) and picks.
Chicago, Deng,Noah,Boozer are their key pieces, Taj Gibson just resigned? If they think they can unload Boozer they are wrong. I can safely say they won't be able to get him, but if they give Phx Rip hamilton, the bobcats pick and theirs they could get Gortat. Though Phx would likely ask for a Young player.
Orlando has some good players, Nicholson, Afflalo, Vucevic. Not sure if they offer Nicholson and they shouldn't. Vucevic,Harkless, Ayon for Gortat.
Or Redick,Harkless,Vucevic for Gortat.
Boston could offer Lee on the 15th, plus a combination of Bradley,Melo,Sullinger ( 1 or 2 ).
I think Dallas and Orlando has better offers and are willing to part with some players. Boston are too attached with Bradley and maybe Sullinger too.
Bradley makes everybody play harder and plays defense full court ! , and Sullinger can rebound and all around a very skilled player. Not sure id give up anyone of them for Gortat, or wait i'm not.
How about working out something with Orlando ? They are in a rebuild, offer them 1st in 2015 just to facilitate a 3 team trade ? If Gortats agent doesnt want Gortat to go to Orlando, or maybe Gortat has bad blood between that organisation.
Give them a 1 st, they give Phoenix Reddick, we give Orlando Lee ? Lee reunites with Orlando !
Orlando send, Reddick to Phx:
Orlando get's, Lee on a moderate deal, and a Boston 1st.
Bostons send, Lee to Orlando and a 1 st, Melo,Joseph and 1st in 2013, Nets 2nd rounder 2014.
Boston get's Gortat.
Phoenix send Gortat to Boston.
Phoenix get's Reddick (expiring) and Melo,Joseph,Boston 1st and Nets 2nd.
