    Default Brandon Bass

    this guy is young, talented, and not getting any time in orlando because he is buried on the bench.
    do you guys think we should try and deal for him?

    i was thinking we could try and swing a deal with murphy in it. murphy could potentially do what we want him to do for hibbert. he could stretch out the defense with his 3 shooting to clear up the lane for dwight? they could have a lot of fun playing 3 fairly big players in rashard, dwight, and murphy.

    i personally like the sound of bass playing alongside hibbert.

    They have Rashard Lewis. Who's basically Troy but better at everything. I don't know why they'd want the impoverished man's version of their own player.

    because ryan anderson is getting pretty significant time on the other F position, and troy is arguably a superior version of anderson.

    Arguably. And 10 times more expensive.

    I like him, but I can't think of anything they'd want from us.

    I'd be very willing to bet that the Magic will trade either Bass or Gortat sometime over the next couple of years.

    Like everybody else, I don't know what we have that they'd want. PG is their biggest weakness since Nelson's always hurt, but I can't see them wanting Ford.

    Or, you could also argue that Anderson is a better shooting, worse rebounding, younger, less expensive version of Troy Murphy. Certainly not enough to duplicate him at S11 mil.

    Bass and Gortat's contracts should add up pretty close to Murphy's contract. Throw in another player from the Pacers' side (Solomon Jones, Luther Head, etc.) and that deal could work in terms of numbers matching. We'd be taking on two multi-year contracts (and both are a little overpaid), but they are two solid players who can provide a spark at both the offensive (Bass) and defensive (Gortat) end. I doubt Orlando would do it, though.

    He is a solid player with a reasonable contract but there are some issues:

    - Doesn't really make the Pacers better.
    - Probably be hard for both teams to agree to a deal.

    I'm pretty sure when the Magic decided to sign both those guys this past offseason, it wasn't so they could eventually flip them into Troy Murphy.

    For one thing, if the Magic do that trade, they're left with Adonal Foyle as the backup center.
