Marcin Gortat Available?

I know we can all dream, but Marcin Gortat (who was backing up Dwight Howard) looks legit. Averaging 15 & 10 with a good contract (only about 6-7mil/year). I put together a trade machine taking back the bad contact of Josh Childress to even it out. I'd do this in a heart beat, but that probably means the Suns likely are not interested...

Why the Warriors do this: Duh, for the big man and a little extra depth (Chris Wright will have to go...)

Why Phoenix does this: Monta will fit in for their running offense. Playing with Steve Nash will work for them and when Nash retires (he is 38) Monta can take over this team like the Warriors. Childress has a lot of contract left and could be an amnesty option for them. We can alleviate that issue for them. It would also mean rebuilding the team around Monta in a year or two.

Why Phoenix doesn't do this: Gortat is the most valuable player in the deal and there isn't a whole lot behind him at center (Lopez and Frye). This contract is a nice sweet spot for his production. A backcourt of Nash and Ellis is worse defensively than Curry and Ellis!
