    Question Mark Magic interested in Ronny Turiaf

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Magic Eye Tony Battie, Ronny Turiaf as Replacement for Marcin Gortat

    ORLANDO, Fla. -- The [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] have asked about the availability of both New York's [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and Philadelphia's [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], hoping to fill quickly their new void at backup center behind [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].

    The [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], according to NBA sources, would like to use backup point guard [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] as trade bait, but they also would be willing to use small forward [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] to get what they want.

    After trading center [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] to Phoenix [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], the Magic are in serious need of more experienced size in the front court to match up against the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] in the Eastern Conference.

    The Magic restructured their roster Saturday by adding guard Gilbert Arenas from Washington, along with guard/forward Jason Richardson, small forward Hedo Turkoglu and second-year forward Earl Clark of Phoenix. They traded away [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] to Washington, and Vince Carter, Mickael Pietrus and Gortat to Phoenix.

    Although the Magic became more talented and more athletic with the Saturday trades getting more playmakers on the roster it also left them vulnerable against bigger teams in the NBA.

    The Magic primarily are looking for someone to play 8-12 minutes per night behind Howard. Battie, 34, hardly has played in Philadelphia after signing a one-year contract this summer.

    He was in the Magic locker room Saturday night after his Sixers played Orlando, visiting with Howard, who still views Battie as a friend and mentor. Battie played with the Magic for four seasons (2004-09).

    Battie just smiled politely when asked about the possibility of coming back to Orlando to finish his career.

    "I play for the Sixers now,'' he said, declining further comment.

    Turiaf, 27, would be more difficult to acquire. He has been serving as the backup to Amar'e Stoudemire in New York, although the Knicks would like to find playing time for young center Timofey Mozgov. Turiaf is making $4 million this season and has an option at $4.3 million next season.

    Although the Knicks are thrilled with Raymond Felton at point guard, they have been looking for a reliable backup. Duhon was the starter under Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni last season before leaving as a free agent for Orlando.

    Battie, after playing in New Jersey last season, came to Philadelphia with a one-year, $1.3 million deal. He is averaging 10.4 minutes in 18 games.

    Until adding another big man, the Magic have only little-used journeyman Malik Allen as an undersized backup for Howard.

    "To say we're completely done at this point? I'd beg to differ,'' Magic general manager Otis Smith said. "We still need another big. That's something we'll be trying to address in the next month or so.''

    Smith declined to say who he would be targeting, but his intent was clear.

    ---Not sure what could happen but I have an idea of what can be done. First I want hear your thoughts.---

    The Magic are stupid enough to the point where they'd probably give us a first-round pick if we demanded it. Seriously, the trade was a terrible move for them future-wise and I wouldn't put it past Otis Smith to give up a big piece since he's basically in WIN NOW mode

    Here's a 3 team trade that I would like:

    Knicks send:
    Ronny Turiaf
    Bill Walker
    Roger Mason

    Knicks receive:
    Joel Przybilla
    Dante Cunningham
    ------------------------
    Magic send:
    JJ Redick

    Magic receive:
    Ronny Turiaf
    2nd round pick
    -------------------------
    Trail Blazers send:
    Joel Przybilla
    Dante Cunningham
    2nd round pick

    Trail Blazers receive:
    JJ Redick
    Bill Walker
    Roger Mason


    Knicks get strength in their front court. And a guy who could give Amare some rest. Blazers get some guys to give Roy a rest, they can waive Mason if they want. And Orlando gets the guy they want by getting rid of Redicks contract which also allows them to give the new acquisitions the time they need.

    Yes. They are desperate to win a title this year or next and do whatever it takes to keep Howard by winning now. The trade was a good one for them in that regard, if it's true that Howard is likely to leave if they don't really contend/win. Even a 10% added chance in keeping Howard to a new deal is worth so much.

    A pick for Turiaf would be incredible....A coup.

    It all but ensures Melo w/o having to give up extra assets of the Fields/Gallo/Wilson trio.

    2011, ORL 1st, Randolph 1st, Chandler, Douglas. We may get away w even less, it'd be stunning if DEN didn't pounce on that.

    Saves us ~5M extra in cap for getting the bigs of our choosings in the offseason.

    All while letting us roll the dice on Moz for the remainder of the season.

    Yeah that would be a STEAL. Maybe a 2nd rounder + Turiaf for a 1st rounder?

    Why would we trade our best defensive center for Joel Pryzbilla?

    We should do this and get Qrich and Duhon from Orlando. Then we can trade a future 1st rounder for Jared Jefferies and convince Jalen Rose to come out of retirement to sign the MLE next year!

    Starting lineup:

    Duhon
    Qrich
    Rose
    Amare
    Jeffires

    Can anyone say CHAMPIONSHIP!

    Reddick and their 1st round pick. Trade Randolph for another 1st round pick.

    Now we have either 3 first round picks to build with, or we make a last ditch attempt to get Carmelo.

    Turiaf is good, but if we can sell high on him... DO IT. Dude just can't stay healthy long enough for us to depend on him.

    Reddick would give us that SG we need. Drain 3s.

    I kinda like this trade. When healthy Pryzbilla is solid. It's not like Turiaf has been healthy much lately anyway. Plus I threw up in my mouth a little bit at the idea of getting Duhan and/or Richardson back and this plan involves neither.

    I know your joking and its funny but oddly enough Duhon would be a good backup pg. He can run the pick and roll and can play defense.

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    The Knicks get: Chris Duhon, J.J. Reddick, Nazr Mohammed, Ryan Anderson, and Jason Williams.

    Just in case Duhon doesn't work as well as I think he would at backup pg the Knicks will have Jason Williams. J.J. Reddick and Ryan Anderson would be a bench the Knicks need and also would be good trade bait. Nazr Mohammed, he fills in the void of having a defensive Center who can start. With this trade the Knicks look like they can also still sign someone next season.

    The Magis get: Turiaf, Boris Diaw, Sherron Collins, and Bill Walker

    With the new acquisitions the Magics received, their is little need to Jason Williams, J.J. Reddick, and Ryan Anderson. To have Arenas, Jason Richardson, and others have their time of play without problems; they will have decent backup with Sherron Collins and Bill Walker. They want Turiaf, and Boris Diaw would help the team in many ways.

    The Bobcats get:
    Eddy Curry, Quentin Richardson, Randolph, Azzy, and Douglas

    Tony Douglas and Quentin Richardson would be a huge pickup for a backup to Augustin and Jackson. Anthony Randolph will be a prospect pickup who will have a lot more playing time. Eddy Curry and Azzy will help them sign someone.
