View Full Version : Brandon Bass: Play me or trade me

Magic PF Brandon Bass reiterated that he wants to either get more minutes or be traded out of Orlando.
After signing Bass to a four-year, $16 million contract last summer, Bass appeared in just 50 games and averaged 13 minutes a night in those contests. "I won't go through what I did last season," Bass said. He could get some extra minutes if Marcin Gortat ends up traded, but significant burn isn't going to happen in the Magic's spread scheme.

Brandon Bass is a good role player for any team, so I am sure many teams would be interested in his services. I'm not sure if Orlando would be willing to trade him, but he has some serious game. I loved watching him when he was with Dallas as well.

It seems Orlando is going to have to trade somebody. Gortat or Bass may be on their way out.

The C's will take Bass. If O_T_I_S is looking for some lux tax relief he should look into a Bass for Sheed deal

Would the Magic be willing to do a Courtney Lee for Brandon Bass deal...The Nets need a PF badly...or Bass for 2 2nd rounders

Bass is a sick player to have off the bench as a 6th man (similar to Landry). He deserves way more PT than what he got last year.

I'd take Gortat in a heartbeat. I like Bass too, but he would be going into a similar situation, being Amare's backup.

MAGIC fan here.

I kind of like the idea of Bass for C. Lee. Although, that's 3 SG's with VC, Redick and Lee. I'd rather have the Lee-Redick combo with there youth. MAGIC fans didn't want to see Lee go, although R. Anderson was a good pick-up. We also think Bass should get more of a shot. I think it's far to say most of us believe Bass can contribute big time. And even though he's barely played, he's still a fan favorite. The guy deserves to play!

Orlando should package Bass and Gortat to get a better big man to compliment Howard. Bass and Gortat are solid NBA players, but a big with range would make the Magic so much more dangerous. They should look to package B&G for Troy Murphy or Mehmet Okur. Having either of those guys as a backup and sometimes floor partner to Howard would make Orlando the best team in the NBA.

It doesn't look like Bass is the solution for Jersey. We need someone to defend and rebound. Bass' rebounding % have been dropping. They were poor the last couple of years. It's at Yi/Aldridge level. His best rebounding years were when he was averaging 10 or less mpg.

I hope we don't trade Bass. Hes one of my fav Magic players. I would like to see him start with Howard moving Lewis to the 3. Bass is our best iso low post player. He def deserves more pt.

Yeah i dont know why SVG didn't give this dude more time. i honestly think he wouldve been better than Rashard in their last playoff series. Whenever Bass came in his impact was felt, he did the same thing in Dallas.

The Magic were lucky to have a bruiser like him on their bench and they paid for not playing him because they were so soft in the playoffs.

Of course Not.

I like the thing tha tpeople are discussing where woudl he fit.

It is what it is. Many people have different views on different players. Maybe it's a simliar situation but that doesn't mean the players attitude or how they handle themselves is. I don't remember the Rudy thing but off of what you're saying, if the guy wants playing time and demands a trade, then offers teams to be traded to its like he's being a diva and wanting star treatment. Even in saying that alot of stars don't have any say where they get traded to.

In Bass' case he just wants pt, prob doesn't care where he gets it, he just wants to showcase what he can do. I have no problem in him saying that.

Speaking on behalf of the Pacers, done deal. :clap:

With all the huge contracts Orlando has, it would seem that Murphy or Okur would be better for them than either Bass or Gortat and save them money for this year and soon after since Murphy expires and Okur only has two years left.
