Hey Suns' fans! Portland Trail Blazer fan here.
I am curious what you guys think about a Gortat trade. I think it is assumed that Phoenix will look to move him because he is towards the end of his prime on a team that looks like rebuilding and he doesn't seem to be too happy. Would you agree with this?
If you were to trade Gortat, what kind of package would you expect to get it done? Lotto pick? Young players? Later picks? Money savings?
As a Blazer fan, I think Gortat would be a nice piece with our core.
How about Gortat for the #12 pick (maybe swapping for your pick from the Heat), Barton, and Claver. Freeland would go to a third team with cap space or an exception like Orlando or Cleveland, along with a 2nd round pick. Gives you a couple assets, including the important lotto pick. Starting center for us. Phoenix would have a plethora of assets to build with or use in a trade.
Would this get it done? Can you get more from someone else? Is it too much?
