Magic GM Otis Smith says he probably won't sign a big man

Otis Smith told me that there is a "good possibility" that he will stand pat and not even bring in a big man to play behind Dwight Howard this season.

"Why do I need one?" Smith asked.

How about matching up with the Boston Celtics in the playoffs? The Celtics have an assortment of bigs: Kevin Garnett, Shaquille O'Neal, Jermaine O'Neal, Kendrick Perkins (currently rehabbing from injury.)

"See, I Iook at it the other way. Why do they have all of those bigs? To match up with us, to match up with Dwight," he said.

This is crazy! Boston have 4 huge men. If Howard gets into foul trouble, like these past games with 3 fouls in the second quarter.. How many points will we get in the paint? 40? 50? These teams goal to win against Orlando, is get Dwight Howard in foul trouble.. So far, they are getting to the goal with Dwight having 9/12 fouls in the last 2 games. Trade C. Duhon and/or Q. Richardson for a big man, so we can get those rebounds at least. Nothing more.

Now, could someone say this to him for me, please. Thanks
