The other problem is that New Orleans really DOES need a starting center but they are sending out Lopez to make the S-n-T work after acquiring Jrue Holiday in the draft.
How about the Suns getting involved in this deal by sending Gortat to New Orleans and getting Robin Lopez back?
Clarification here: there is NO RUMOR that the Suns are involved in any discussions on this. It's just me speculating.
New Orleans, who has a glut of guards now, could send Austin Rivers out to Sacramento with Vasquez, with Sacramento sending a protected first round pick to the Suns. NOLA has shown rumored interest in shopping Rivers.
Sacramento gets: Grievis Vasquez, Austin Rivers
New Orleans gets: Tyreke Evans, Marcin Gortat
Phoenix gets: Robin Lopez, protected first round pick
Lopez is younger, cheaper and less talented than Gortat, but can be a starter for his first NBA team while Alex Len develops.
What say you, Suns fans. Is this enough booty for Gortat?
