Magic Interested In Marcin Gortat?

Could the Orlando Magic bring back former center Marcin Gortat?

According to Przeglad Sportowy's Marcin Harasimowicz, Phoenix Suns center Marcin Gortat is unhappy with his with his role in Phoenix's offense. Gortat, who averaged 15.4 points on 11.7 shots per game last year and is averaging just 11.0 points on 9.3 shots per game this year, believes head coach Alvin Gentry is giving Luis Scola more touches in the post.

Harasimowicz's story is written in Polish, but Gothic Ginobili's Adam Koscielak was kind of enough to translate the story.

"I'm certainly not the player I was last season, I need to find my place in the new order," Gortat said. "I'm still capable of helping this team, and regularly recording a double double, but when the ball sticks to one person on offence, it's hard to find a good rhythm."

In addition, the report says Gortat could be traded and lists the Boston Celtics, Chicago Bulls, Dallas Mavericks and Orlando Magic as potential suitors.

Gortat spent just under three-and-a-half seasons with the Magic as the backup to Dwight Howard before being dealt to the Suns in December of 2010.
