^^Furthermore in addition to the trade i suggested above I'd trade Gallinari for Carmelo. I'd do this for two reasons, first Carmelo could mentor Tobias Harris and potentially teach him some offensive moves to help develop his game further the second reason is get Carmelo Expiring contract to free up money for 2019.

God, you were making such sense until you mentioned bringing Carmelo in. From what I've seen, all he brings to a team is disharmony and underachievement.

i only mentioned Carmelo more so for financial reasons, so your telling me if you had the chance to get an extra 20 million free cap next year to pursue kwahi Leonard in free agency you wouldn't. In regards to teaching Tobias some moves, he taught Blake his step black. I'm just saying Gallo is probably gonna get hurt again next year, and not many teams are gonna want his contract. At least in this case we get his contract off the books, let Melo walk in the summer and use the extra cap space to build this team.

Another scenario of mine that i would love, is getting Aaron Gordon in a S&t for Gallo and a pick. Aaron Gordon has the potential to be Shawn Marion 2.0 his athleticism & defensive potential are obvious. And with his developing 3 pointer that improved this season he has the potential to being something special a combo stretch forward, with solid rebounding and defensive capabilities could pair up nice with the tobias harris at the small forward position especially in a the era where teams are running more spread offense.

Didn't the Magic already have the Aaron Gordon / Tobias Harris problem though? I don't mind Gordon, but I don't know about him and Harris together.

I Don't think it will be much of an issue having them play together seeing that they both can play either forward positions, From what I remember Tobias took Gordon under his wing as a rookie. But judging their games, it looks like Gordon looks more comfortable at the power forward position, even with his improved range. Tobias Harris and Aaron Gordon could just how Tobias and Gallinari works its just the Harris/Gordon Dynamic would be younger and have more defensive and explosive potential. Plus Gordon is only 22, he's very young and can grow with this team.

In regards to the Magic, they were impatient and had the wrong coach for that team otherwise, they'd still have Payton, Oladipo, Harris, Gordon, Vucevic, with other young piece filling out that team. Imagine if Brad Stevens had that team, They would have been in the playoffs. Sometimes the system and Coaching can have a major factor in a team growth.

With the right coach that magic team would have been insane!

It was nice seeing Gordon increase his range, makes him much more attractive of an acquisition but I still would be a little concerned about him only because he’s not a great rebounder as well as Tobias not being a very strong rebounder. They only played together for a season and a half so you can really judge that. I wish things with Gallo could work but he can’t stay healthy, can’t expect anything else from him.

well gordon averaged 8 rebounds per game this , that is not bad seeing that is he is a Tweener, plus with today style of play a lot of rebounds are from long ball, plus the team can rebound collectively.
