That would be a GREAT idea considering the Magic are still stuck with Turkoglu's contract and were dumb enough to re-up JRich's as well. And with the D12 situation, I'm sure they would feel a whole lot more comfortable in letting him go if they had Gortat still waiting in the wings.
Before making a decision on whether or not to match, I'd explore some options by throwing out Noah's name before I considered trading an Asik. The more known commodity will net you a higher gain...unless you're comfortable with still paying a Hedo Turkoglu $12 million all those years.
The problem with the ORL/PHX deal was that Orlando though bringing Turk back would bring back the mojo they had during their Finals run and make Dwight happier (which I think was the key reason why the deal happened), but that certainly wasn't the case.
Paxson is nowhere near as bad of a GM as Smith was, and I'm sure he could find a team that's looking for a serviceable 7 footer that will only eat up cap space in an expiring year of the deal.
