Orlando Magic general manager Otis Smith said Tuesday that he likely wouldn't consider making a trade before the deadline next month unless the team was hit with a serious injury.
"It would depend at what position," he said. "Right now, I don't see anything happening."
Despite rumors that pop up from time to time, Smith has no plans to deal back-up C Marcin Gortat or PF Brandon Bass. Both players have been frustrated with their playing time. He said he felt the Magic had enough big men to challenge for a title.
Given that Brandon Bass and Marcin Gortat have been embedded in trade rumors here and there, I wanted to ask the community a question. If you had to trade Bass or Gortat, who would it be, and why? No need to come up with a trade scenario, just give an explanation to support your decision.
Have at it.
