I think that Jose is a better PG than Nelson and would be the assist type of guy the Magic needs.
Amir is a much better PF than Bass will ever be.
Beli obviously isn't as good as Gortat but gives them depth.
Beli's expiring makes up some of difference in Jose's contract and all of Orlando's are long term.
Bass could be moved in a trade he is an ok back-up without a huge contract.
Amir cant be traded till December 15. Furthermore, how does that trade help Orlando? Its a downgrade move.
