Marcin Gortat wants bigger role, but Orlando Magic not interested - Oct 7, 2010


POSTED BY:
EUROBASKET NEWS

Marcin
Gortat
At the EuroBasket qualifying tournament in August, few big men were more dominant than Poland's Marcin Gortat (213-C-84).

He led the tournament in field-goal percentage. He played almost every minute. He had 29 points against Belgium. 23 against Bulgaria.

When playing for Poland, Gortat is the man. His teammates look to him almost every trip down the court, feeding him the ball near the hoop and out near the perimeter. Jumpers, post-ups, cuts off the pick and roll; Gortat shows off a versatile offensive repertoire when playing for his home country.

Then Gortat returns to Orlando, where his role is simple: rebound, defend and run the floor. Stuck backing up the league's best center, few plays are called for Gortat. On offense, he's little more than a pick-setter and boards-crasher.

When Gortat does try to showcase his offensive game with the Magic, he gets talked to by the coaching staff.

And that adjustment has not been easy for the 26-year-old big man.

'There are days when I'm about to explode and just say a couple of things or go to the coach and tell him what I want to do,' Gortat said. 'I feel like I'm one of the guys who has to sacrifice a lot to adjust to this team. I can tell you that it's not easy.'

The Orlando Magic, meanwhile, are not overly concerned about Gortat's desire to play more offense. During the team's 3 1/2- hour meeting last Monday, his teammates told him they wanted him to focus on his role of defending, rebounding and running the floor.

They weren't interested in any offensive flash from Dwight Howard's backup.

'A lot of players feel that they can do more than what everybody's asking them to do,' Howard said. 'But you've gotta know your role. Teams that win championships, everybody knows their role.'

After the first week of training camp, coach Stan Van Gundy was concerned about Gortat's focus on his role.

He finished last among Orlando's big men in rebounding and failed to register a block in the team's four scrimmages last week. And Gortat shot just 36 percent from the field among the worst on the team. In Tuesday night's preseason opener, however, Gorat scored 10 points on 4-of-5 shooting and grabbed 10 rebounds in a little more than 20 minutes.

'I think that he's a guy who has a lot of trouble accepting his role,' Van Gundy said. 'He really wants to be more of an offensive player. I'm not discouraging that. But he needs to focus on defending and rebounding and running the floor. He needs to get back to that.

'Those are the things he does well, and he has not done a good job of that.'

The Dallas Mavericks made Gortat an offer worth about $34 million over 5 years last summer. In Dallas, Gortat would be the starter alongside forwards Dirk Nowitzki and Shawn Marion. He'd be the leading big man on a Western Conference contender.

Somewhat surprisingly, Orlando matched the offer. At the time many thought Gortat was simply long-term trade bait, but it's looking more and more as if the Magic intend to keep him around as Howard insurance.

Gortat isn't unhappy in Orlando he likes his teammates, the city and the legitimate possibility of a championship but the thought of playing a bigger role somewhere else rarely leaves his mind.

'I'm entering my prime years,' Gortat said. 'I want to keep winning, but I also want to play. So I hope I'm going to have both those things.'

Gortat is generally a good soldier. It's not as if he walks around the Magic facilities with a chip on his shoulder. He's always laughing and joking with his teammates; he's a pleasant guy to be around.

Van Gundy likes him, saying 'I have great faith in him. He's a smart guy, he plays hard, he knows what he's doing and he fits well with us.'

Gortat, though, won't see his role grow larger in Orlando anytime soon. His role, now and in the future, is clear: rebound, defend and run the floor.

'I'm interested in trying to do what's best for our team,' Van Gundy said. 'Some guys will have to accept some things role-wise; every guy out here has to accept some things role wise.'
