Brandon Bass Signs With Orlando

Brandon Bass, an admittedly undersized power forward will be bumping elbows with Dwight Howard and Vince Carter,  in Orlando next season. Bass signed a 4 yr deal deal with the Magic in the neighborhood of 18 million dollars. Bass will helping to fill the front line voids created by the loss of  Turkgolu and Gortat. Bass stands only 6' 8" which is small by NBA standards at the PF position but he is wide, has a nice mid range jump shot, defends well and will block out and clear the boards along with Superman.

Brandon Bass will bring some toughness to the Magic and aid in their half court setup, which proved to be the undoing of the Magic in the finals loss to Los Angeles.The Mavericks had hoped to resign Bass but after acquirring Shawn Marion in trade from Toronto, Dallas had no more money and little playing time for Bass. Bass will be joining Vince Carter at Orlando who was recently acquired from New Jersey. Gortat by the way is on his way to Dallas.
