This is how low we are as a fan base? Nic batum?

Someone tell me what he does for us?
Does he push us up to a 5th or 6th seed? Are we even an 8 seed with him? Or does he simply help us win just enough games to miss out on the top 5 of the draft but still miss the playoffs?

If we are signing anyone for more than league min, it should be someone like Harry Giles. A guy with sky hight potential that's still very young but had had issues in the past (or giles it's injuries)
Sign giles, that way if we trade AG, we have a replacement in house and if we keep ag, we have a reliable backup and aren't forced to watch aminu stubble his way back and forth

Magic have 15 guaranteed contracts at this point so Batum isn't happening unless the Magic either A. trade two players for one or B. eat a guaranteed contract.

Or C. Back out of an agreement that isn't official yet.

If Orlando really wants Batum, they can get ugly and screw over someone that hasn't signed yet. None of these deals can be signed until tomorrow.

Is is possible to say this team is in the NBA basement. Especially after the moves that the Hawks and Hornets have made in the last 48hrs?

Yep. Make it even tougher to bring FAs in by getting a rep for playing dirty pool. So we can get Nicolas Batum.

do you know if Batum's interest to join Orl was made known to the Magic?

I wonder if we had the roster space, if we would've pushed for him or knowing he was interested, they passed and went Ennis.
