On an expiring deal. But so will Be Fournier. No real benefit to the financials.

I wouldn't trade him for financial reasons, it's because I like his game.

Tucker plays with a lot of passion thats for sure.Never gives up etc but when he shoots my eyes bleed.Ive seen enough of brick layers in my lifetime.He would be a nice addition...if we had Harden :wink: .

His corner 3 is good, IMO. Maybe the shot is ugly, but as long as he makes them, I'm OK with that.

He's rim runner, Cs like him will always find place because of his mobility. But without elite ballhandlers to use him in screen and P&R action he is player less on offense.

I would have loved to have him a year or two ago, but this past season showed me our team needs the vuc type, offensive playing center. That's why I'd be fine with trading Bamba if we resign Vuc, and try to upgrade one of our other positions of need.

Bamba trade/DJ/Fultz
Fournier/Ross
Isaac/draft
Gordon/Martin
Vuc/FA
Do not max Vuc!

Sure rim runners in general are valuable but on this team in particular the way we play? Not quite, we just don't have enough play makers as currently constructed. Thing is though bamba could be effective as a rim runner if that's the criteria, he has serious potential on vertical spacing alone. Thus we come back to the problem, playmakers we don't have players that is good enough in the pick and roll to take advantage of the potential vertical spacing bamba provides. I mean literally a player can throw it up at the top of the square and bamba can go get it with his length. He has to work on his body though to absorb contact better but since he has those dwight shoulders he should be able to put on weight on that frame.

somehow every game I watch ROckets he doesnt make them (I see about 20-25 games a season)his shot is horrendous when I watch those games he always finish with 1/9 or something like that. EVERY FREAKIN TIME.HE cant even hit a jumper 4 ft from basket.

Well, so I think we shouldn't trade for him as you will watch more than 20-25 Magic games per year :lol:

Then I guess we haven’t learned our lesson that players like Cappella are only effective when paired with elite wing talent. He’s obsolete. If we lose Vuc then there is absolutely no reason not to hand the reigns to Mo.
