    Vucevic on the trade block! Couldn't ask for a better opportunity to snag a great offensive center on a good contract. Hope it happens somehow.

    They probably offered the most money and maybe promised to start. Vogel likes defense so he will get more minutes than on most teams. Chance to win is good too. Raptors are maxed out and will become worse.

    I'd love to scoop up Gordon if they decide to get rid of him.

    I would trade everyone on this team not named Harden...to nab Gordon...But that is not happening. Really dont see him being shipped out from ORL. Vucevic on the other hand looks like a goner.

    Everyone on the team minus Harden kind of sucks.

    So what are they going to do with Aaron Gordon? Move him to SF?

    Biyambo isn't really a smart signing for Orlando at all

    Another reason why this wasn't a good signing.

    http://bbs.clutchfans.net/showpost.php?p=10584789&postcount=14Deal is 4-years/$72M, not $70M from Marc Stein's previous tweet.

    Not really sure about their lineup at all.

    Payton - PG
    Fournier - SG
    Gordon - SF
    Ibaka - PF
    Biyombo - C

    ???

    Don't forget, Jeff Green has agreed to go to Orlando.

    Very strange time in the NBA right now. 18 million a year for one way player feels like a bargain.

    Great news for Rockets fans.

    A) We aren't wasting our money on Biyombo to essentially be Asik Part II with less offense and more shot blocking.

    B) Vucevic is probably being shopped.

    Having both Vucevic and Biyombo doesn't make sense when Ibaka can play occasional small ball C.

    It also doesn't make sense to sign Biyombo and shop Vucevic.

    I doubt Vucevic is on the block..these are win now moves. Vucevic was one of the few win now pieces they had before. Plus, hes their only true scorer up front.

    I think Gordon is the guy they might trade..

    They could use Pat and Trevor now..

    Pat/elfrid
    Fournier/Hezonja
    Ariza/Green/Hezonja
    Ibaka/Biyombo/Green
    Vucevic/Biyombo

    Not sure we can put the best package together for Gordon though..or that we should, given the age discrepancy bt him and harden..

    True story: I once saw dedmon and didn't recognize him whatsoever and had no clue if he was an athlete but I was drunk so I said "hey what team do u play for" and he goes "Orlando Magic".
