Center Marcin Gortat has always been one of those pretty good, but not great players. Players like that are often mentioned in trade talks and that is just the nature of the league as it currently goes.
Gortat is taking a mature approach to the situation though, and he is to be commended for it He knows he is in trade speculation, but he is trying to help the Suns young talent grow before he goes.
Phoenix Suns Marcin Gortat knows he's on the block, has to help young centers grow http://t.co/rSByJTrOQ0

What a class act. A more immature player would have thrown a fit or talked behind peoples backs to the media, but not Gortat. He has accepted the obstacles and complications that life has to offer and he said, “Okay, I can deal with that.”
Then makes the best of it.
Here is hoping Gortat ends up on a team that is not tanking and actually in need of his services, because there are plenty out there who could use a quality center. Lord knows the Phoenix Suns want to have a horrible record next season and trading Gortat might just be the final nail in that coffin of purposefully awful decision making. Karma is real though folks, and it makes me wonder if the Suns will regret their actions in the end. We will not know further until we see where the ping pong balls land folks.
