Phoenix Suns center Marcin Gortat thinks that the team may try to trade him before February's deadline.

Marcin Gortat has said that he thinks the Phoenix Suns will try to offload him before February's trade deadline.

The center, who is the team's highest-paid player, is in the final year of his current contract.

He told Arizona Republic: "This is a business. We all know where I am right now, and we all know what's going to happen probably. It's business. I totally understand that.

"I totally understand the situation. I totally understand the management and front office people. There are no hard feelings. At the end of the day, I'm a pro. I'm going to try to do everything that's necessary to win the basketball game."

Gortat, who first entered the NBA with the Orlando Magic in 2007, averaged 11.1 points per game last season.
