With the move of Marcin Gortat to Phoenix, I can’t but think that there is more to come with this trade deal.
Dwight Howard, with the new roster following the acquisition of Gilbert Arenas, Hedo Turkoglu, Jason Richardson, and Earl Clark, has no solid big man to put in quality minutes off the bench as his backup at center. Brandon Bass is solid and can throw his 250 pounds around to wrestle rebounds, but he is not a tower by NBA standards at 6’8″ tall.
Dwight needs a counterpart at center, which makes me think that this trade deal might be only paused rather than finalized at the moment.
More to come, for sure.
