Marcin Gortat was acquired by the Phoenix Suns in the mega-trade with the Orlando Magic that also included Jason Richardson, Vince Carter and Hedo Turkoglu.
In his 16 games with the Suns, he is averaging 8.3 points, 6.8 rebounds and 1.06 blocks per game, which is in a little under 24 minutes per game.
He is currently coming off the bench with Robin Lopez starting in front of him. With Lopez not performing up to his play last year, Gortat needs to be inserted into the starting lineup.
Read on to see why starting Gortat gives the Suns the best chance to win.
