08:12 AM ET 11.26 | The forecast for Phoenix center Marcin Gortat's future might be considered mostly sunny. [Gortat] said he turned down a multiyear contract extension offer in October from the Suns, clarifying what he told a Polish website, przegladsportowy.pl. "We just said we're going to wait," Gortat said. "I want to finish this contract, and we'll see where I go from there. ... The thing I'm concentrating is coming back to dominating the game and getting back to being a defensive spark." Gortat would not mind negotiating on behalf of his backup center, Jermaine O'Neal. He said he told Suns President of Basketball Operations Lon Babby that he would pay for another year's salary for O'Neal if they don't.

I love the Polish Hammer's game. He's worked hard to get to where he is. Definitely a great player for any team to pick up. He would be the final piece to make Miami maybe the greatest team ever if they could get him.

Really? Then why not just get Dwight Howard? Easy fix right?

Best bet would be Celtics, but there are plenty of teams that could use him.
