Orlando Magic Not Planning to Trade Gortat or Bass

Orlando Magic general manager Otis Smith said Tuesday that he likely wouldn’t consider making a trade before the deadline next month unless the team was hit with a serious injury.

"It would depend at what position," he said. "Right now, I don’t see anything happening."

Despite rumors that pop up from time to time, Smith has no plans to deal back-up C Marcin Gortat or PF Brandon Bass. Both players have been frustrated with their playing time. He said he felt the Magic had enough big men to challenge for a title.,0,3318126.story
