According to two league sources, the Cs are in discussions with Orlando to send Big Baby, in a sign-and-trade deal, to Orlando for power forward Brandon Bass – a player Magic management had been very high on at one stage. Bass is due $4 million each of the next two years, including a player option for the 2012-13 season.
The Pistons still could use another big on the roster and Dumars still has a mid-level exception burning a hole in his pocket, but with Davis off the market, it’s unclear if the Pistons will target any. A few of the names to kick around: Joel Przybilla, Kwame Brown, Erick Dampier, Reggie Evans and Kyrylo Fesenko — in other words, nothing to get excited about. Hopefully, an opportunity to trade a guard for a big materializes, although there doesn’t seem to be any trading partners who are a match right now.
