Pacers Show Interest in Magic Center Marcin Gortat



Marc Stein reports:

Word is that New York and Indiana are also among the teams to register immediate interest in Gortat over the phone once free agency started, which helps explain why one Eastern Conference official describes the 7-footer from Poland as this summer's likely "Powerball winner," since Gortat almost certainly will cash in on the position he plays despite limited opportunities in Orlando behind Howard.

 

I really hope this is a baseless rumor because the signing would make no sense considering the money he will likely get (MLE) and the fact our depth chart seems set in post with the drafting of Hansbrough and the qualifying offer sent to McRoberts.

 

Depth Chart:

PF: Murphy, Hansbrough (McRoberts)

C: Hibbert, Foster (McRoberts)

 

I fail to see where Gortat would fit in. He seems to be a fine player and a great back up center, but you don't pay the MLE for a back up center.

 

I should also add that Gortat would cost us our whole MLE if not more, because according to Adrian Wojnarowski, he has already been offered the full MLE by a team.
