Magic May Be Discussing Trade For Arenas

He'll take his talents, swagger, a bloated contract and his guns to Florida ...

Good trade? Bad?

Magic May Be Discussing Trade For Arenas

Sources indicate the Orlando Magic have been in contact with the Washington Wizards about acquiring guard Gilbert Arenas.

What Orlando would send Washington in return for the three-time All-Star is not clear. However, proposed deals have included shooting guard Vince Carter, Wizards big man Andray Blatche, Magic forward Rashard Lewis, and Magic center Daniel Orton.

Both teams have a mutual understanding of what the trade might include, sources say, but it's unclear what factors are holding up the trade.

What is clear around the league, however, is that Magic President of Basketball Operations Otis Smith has his eye on Arenas. If Orlando is to make a major trade this season, Arenas will likely be the target.

I don't understand why anyone would want his bloated contract. Whatever tho if they think this move will make them better then go for it

I still don't get why the Magic need Arenas if they already have Nelson.

Smith and Arenas are tight from their GSW days...could explain the interest.

Arenas' contract is horrible... but he can still play. He's a better scorer than Nelson.

And with all that room to shoot from the outside (that D12 creates)? Could be ideal for both parties.

I see this as a move to prove to D12 that they're trying to help him win too.

He can't be worse than Vince at any rate.

C - D12
PF - Bass
SF - Pietrus
SG - Arenas
PG - Nelson

6th man - VC

I'd prob run it like that.

Gilbert has one more year than Lewis on his contract and I don't see the Wizards just swapping for Lewis. Would have to add another player IMO

I think Orl is one great point guard away from being a serious contender. But I don't believe Arenas can be that pg, but would likely have an opposite effect

I've heard that Rashard Lewis used to be a good player but when his scoring 20 points in a game is the highlight of the night, something has gone very, very wrong.

Plus, Arenas might actually put out consistent numbers if he's on a championship calibre team.

This trade works out for everyone I think, well, everyone except Vince Carter.

It would be okay if VC is content with coming off the bench. But I don't think that would happen. =/

I think that if this trade is made nothing will change for any of the teams.

I know I like Agent Zero the guy.... but he looked pretty bad last night. I'm not sure I'd want him around on any team for the cash he has coming to him.
