Sounds like if they played this way during the games we wouldn't lose terrible games like the last game.

My Spanish is pretty rusty, but here is the basic summary -

- The Magic are still in regular contact with Barcelona and Fran
- Vasquez wants to play in Orlando next season if he can negotiate a buy-out
- Orlando have been trying to negotiate a discount on the buy-out, which currently stands at about 7million euros.
- Barcelona are not willing to make a decision on Fran's future until after the Eurloeague final four is over next month
- Indications are that they may be willing to let him go, because the likelihood is that a new coach (expected to be Ettore Messina) will be in charge next season, and might want to bring in his own interior players.
- Orlando's problem is whether or not Messina makes a decision on Fran's future before the draft, because if they don't think he will be playing in Florida next season, they want to use their draft pick to sign a forward.

It is rusty, and I have paraphrased, but I think the general gist is there. Luke may be better placed to translate it for you.

Another note on Fran - he has had a horrible season, but as we reach the business end of the Euroleague season, his play is improving. He's average 6.9ppg, 3.3rpg, 1.4bpg and shot 60% from the field over his last ten games, including a couple of big playoff performances, as Barca have reached the final 8.
