Gortat will sign with Dallas it looks like, meaning Houston still needs a center.
Can we get a deal done here?
Here is the funny thing about Houston,Dallas, and The Knicks
The Knicks covet Gortat and wanted to make him an offer, and they also want to trade Curry away. We are also currently causing Mark Cuban to lose sleep over losing his starting PG. Wanted T-Mac from Houston
Houston: Needs a center and Gortat was their first choice, with a rumor (still have not heard any Houston exec confirm) that they were somewhat considering Curry. Another rumor had them considering trading T-Mac to us
Dallas: Wants Gortat, wants to trade Dampier and wants to retain Kidd
I say lets get all three teams on the horn to see how we can help each other out!
We help out Houston by freeing up Gortat and offer Dallas Curry and Nate for Dampiers expiring contract and we take our offer to Kidd off the table.
For our favor to Houston they agree to the T-Mac swap for Hughes and Mobley
NY: Gets Curry's contract off the Books (buys out Dampier before he even arrives at the airport), gets T-Mac
Houston: Gortat,Hughes and some financial relief
Dallas: Keeps Kidd,moves their worst FA signing to date, and adds Nate....ok so now their stuck with Curry, but he did play his best ball of the season in Dallas last year!
Ok, deals like this never get done, just having a little fun with the possibilities
