I would trade for Big V even though he is currently injured!!

I would trade Morris and Smart and Nader for Big V and a very protected Magic future first rounder!!

I do that because V is cheap for next year and we likely canNOT re-up Smart.  I also do this because I really HATE Morris' game!!!  Horrendous defender.  Nader is NOT an NBA level player!!

This also frees up two roster spots.

Thoughts?

Magic really aren't in a position to trade 1st rounders, even protected ones. They should be firmly in asset acquisition mode. With that said, I'd replace Smart with Yabusele and send a 1st round pick their way. I think moving both Marcuses would be a hit to our perimeter play.

Danny Ainge got fleeced.

Morris and Yabusele is not enough salary for it to work:-(

I really don't want to move Yab, but I guess we might have to do so.
