NBA.com: Forward Bass agrees to four-year deal with Magic

Thats how you sign a backup PF Cleveland. A guy whos already avging 9+5 and can change a game off the bench and keeps getting better every year. Very nice signing.

Cleveland stands alone at the top of the East if they make this signing. With Varajao they're just another one of the three.

Great signing by Orlando.

I think it's Nikoloz Tskitishvili.


I agree with Thriller. This was a fantastic signing by Otis Smith. You need energy guys off of the bench. He easily replaces Battie. And they didn't break the bank for him. I thought he was close to signing with the Bobcats.

Don't you think Varajao compliments Shaq better though with his speed on the defensive end as opposed to Bass's power.

I know people like to hate on Varajao, but the guy is effective.

Everyone talked about Cleveland being a scoring power forward away from a championship, and it didn't happen. I don't doubt Varejao will compliment Shaq better on the defensive end, but Cleveland's defense has never really been the issue.

Besides, I'm still not convinced that Shaq and Lebron will work. Shaq and Kobe worked because Kobe is more perimeter-oriented than Lebron. I think Shaq's going to bung the lane up for Lebron. We'll see, should be interesting.

It was vs Magic in the po's. They got Shaq to defend Howard and put him in foul trouble (& other big guys obviously), not for heavy scoring purposes.

I dunno... I'm not a fan of Shaq at all, but I have to give him credit. Every team he had a star swingman to be his sidekick did extremely well. Orlando with Penny, LA with Kobe, Miami with Wade, and now Cleveland with LeBron... I think they're going to be very tough this year.

They gave Varajeao waaaay too much money though. He may be effective and a good fit next to Shaq, but he's nothing more than a hustle player and energy guy, and those guys don't deserve the contract that he got.
