Magic Players On The Trading Block

Magic Players On The Trading Block

Postby Kobe8Fan on Fri Aug 31, 2012 6:44 pm


Even though Dwight Howard, Ryan Anderson, Jason Richardson, Earl Clark and Chris Duhon have been shipped out, the Magic are hardly finished in their attempts to make trades.
They are open for business to any team that is interested in the likes of holdovers Hedo Turkoglu, Jameer Nelson, J.J. Redick, Big Baby Davis and Quentin Richardson. (And those players also might be looking to join a team that’s not competing for lottery prizes the next few seasons.)

Vets Al Harrington and Josh McRoberts, who both arrived in the Dwight deal, also will be there for the asking.

What do the Magic want in return to jettison any of those deals? Ideally, expiring contracts and/or draft picks.

Odds of moving the big multi-year contracts of Turk ($11.8 and roughly $6 million), Nelson (3 years, about $20 million) and Davis (3 years, $19.4 million) are slim, of course.

Redick has an expiring deal at $6.7 million so he’ll be beneficial whether he’s dealt or not. McRoberts also has an expiring contract at $3.1 million.

Richardson has two years left at $2.6 million and $2.8 million.

Even with two guaranteed seasons at $6.2 million and $6.6 million, Harrington has enough firepower left to interest a team looking for a scorer or trying to fill a void created by an injury.

The Magic likely will be busy at the trade deadline.

They also have a $17.8 million trade exception for the next year from the Howard deal — believed to be the largest in league history — to utilize. For taking on a player from a team that’s, say, trying to avoid the luxury tax, the Magic hope to acquire more draft picks in that transaction. ... block.html

Should Mitch do some more business with Rob Hennigan again?

:man10: I would think Hennigan is still a little too "sore" for that again so soon....... :man10:

So Shenanigans signs Nelson to a new deal at almost 9 million per year and then immediately puts him on the trading block? :man10:

The worst part is, this guy isn't even doing this for E-wins like that dude in Houston.

So they resign Jameer just to trade him for an expiring K? makes no sense to me

They trade for Harrington to get rid of him? makes no sense to me

ya, sounds like the Magic front office, makes sense to me

Feel bad for Magic fans. They've got the most incompetent front office in sports.

Too bad Redick wasn't a part of the Dwight package.

They're going to whatever they can to improve their odds of getting either Nerlens Noel or Shabazz Muhammad. Hopefully some of them get dumped for picks and their new team will buy them out. Then we can have a chance at JJ or Hedo for a minimum contract. :man9:
