Recently, there has been talk that the Dallas Mavericks may be shopping Brandon Bass around the league. He seems like a good fit for the Magic in multiple ways:
1) Hard-working PF who can rebound. Also, very athletic. Imagine a big lineup of Jameer, Turk, Shard, Bass, and Dwight. That would be unstoppable if you ask me.
2) Cap-friendly contract (less than 1MM)
I don't know what it would take to trade for him, or how to match the contracts, but maybe something like this (salaries match on ESPN trade machine):
Brandon Bass, Jerry Stackhouse (Expiring contract/on the trading bock)
JJ Redick, Brian Cook
Essentially, Dallas gets another talented wing player as well as a "big" body to replace Bass' minutes. Orlando gets the bruising, athletic 4 they are looking for.
What do you all think? Would you make this trade? Would Dallas make this trade?
