Magic To Pursue Rasheed, Bass


Jun 27, 2009 9:40 AM EST
The Magic are expected to pursue free-agent forwards Rasheed Wallace and Brandon Bass this week.

Two NBA sources told Fan House that Orlando is interested in Wallace and Bass.

The Magic traded for Vince Carter on Thursday, and are now expected to let Hedo Turkoglu walk in free agency.

Wallace is expected to be pursued by both the Magic and Celtics, while Bass will be one of the best reserves
Hedo will not be back in Magic land.

Where does Hedo most likely end up?

At $10/yr? Because that's what he's asking. He probably won't get it but its what he wants.

Hedos worth 7 mil a year tops. Any team that gives him anything over that, the GM for that team should be fired on the spot.

In terms of what the Magic should do, if they cant get Sheed and get Bass, then they have to try and trade for a decent backup swingman and start Pietrus, but if they get Sheed the possibilities are endless because then they wont have to look for a backup C since they can play him at the 5 when Dwight is sitting, and theyd have the best defensive frontcourt in the league and STILL be able to space the floor like they do with Sheed outside the 3 pt line. And not only that, having Sheed enables you to keep Pietrus coming off the bench :|

While I agree with you, the sad reality is that most GMs are going to overpay for Turkey Glue, especially after that playoff run that the Magic made.

I agree, but i think he'll get around 8Mil. The scary thing is what if Hedo signs for 10Mil elsewhere and Marion sees that and says "i'm better then that" and it drives his price up.

No rebuilding team is going to overpay Turkoglu.

The only team I can see overpaying is a team ready to take the next step or win a title. I can definately see Portland trying to trade for him.

Trade? He's a FA.

Maybe they make a seperate trade to dump salary to make room for him. Unless Orlando S&T him but Orlando can't afford 10Mil in salary coming in return.
