Rockets pursuing Gortat

RealGM: Basketball Wiretap Archives: Morey Kicks Off Free Agency With Gortat Tweet

Quote:
Daryl Morey kicked off the 2010 free agency with a Tweet just minutes before midnight announcing that he is set to meet with Marcin Gortat.

"Meeting in a few w/ Gortat," wrote the Rockets general manager. "Send a note to him NOW at rocketsfanslovegortat@gmail.com. He will receive. Show him how much we want him in Red!"

If they're serious about Yao being out for the long haul, Gortat is the first guy they should be going after. Gortat could be a legit 12/10/4 guy if given Yao's minutes.

He's what they need with Yao's news. I can imagine them offering him a big long term.

Gortat won't ever be double-teamed because he's not good enough to warrant it.

Sounds like the Knicks, Mavs, and Pacers are also interested in Gortat.

What the hell kind of logic is that? Hes going to be double teamed because hes a starting center? The only time hes going to touch the ball on offence is off a pick and roll where hes right near the basket to lay it in or offensive rebounds. Hes never going to get it posting up because that isnt his game.

And for 5 mil a year, getting a 10+10 guy which I believe Gortat is, and getting his amazing post defence is a steal for any team as long as they play him the minutes.
