FORTSON or Dampier to ORLANDO?

All GSW wants is a 1st rounder or 1st and 2nd rounder.

It has been much talked about that Orlando needs inside pressence, bulk and rebounding.. Why not
trade Fortson to Orlando even just for a first round pick.. It's not like orlando dosn't have 5 or 6 firstrounders in the years to come from their previous trades.. what do you guys think?

Or how about Dampier to Orlando for a Draft pick or two.. 1st and second rounder? He would do a lot
better since there are less true centers in the east...

Orlando is positioning themselves to make a push at some big names in next years FA class.

There is no way they make a move for either of those players because taking on their contracts means they will not be active in next years FA market. And Forston or Dampier is not the missing piece to a title run.

Nobody wants Danny Fortson, that guy sucks. The Warriors may be stuck with him for the next four years. NOBODY wants Danny Fortson, N-O-B-O-D-Y!

Erick Dampier has SOME value, but not as much as you think. The Magic would probably trade a bunch of crap for Dampier, but their crap is all getting waived (Jud Buechler), traded (Don Reid), or retired (Patrick Ewing). And Horace Grant has a no-trade clause.

In other words, no, Dampier won't end up in Orlando. Maybe in Philly? Portland? New York?
