IMO, SF is the least impact position on the floor. I like Marion alot, but the few negatives I have on him are BIG to me.
a) Jump shooter first menatlity, makes his athletic & quickness less effective.
b) Not a "tuff" player.
c) A contract that demands a more mpact player.
I dont know much about the restrictions in the NBA when it comes to trading. So this could be a pointless thread.
Orlando wants to make TMac happy. If they could bring in Marion to play with him pluss a good draft pick at #7, would they explore this to keep TMac?
And if they would, I think it is a great trade for both teams. Orlando would be heading in the right direction. While the Suns would add a defensive specialist at the center position. More cap flexability, and gain alot of tuffness inside with Amare & Okafor.
Not to mention, more defense & rebounding to get KOBE more shots! (J/K)
