BREAKING NEWS: ORLANDO MAGIC DISMANTLES TEAM IN A 2 TRADE DEAL!!!
The Magic must’ve seen the WHOOPING the Heat put on the Knicks last night and said “We need to get our shit together” because in a mid-season move, Orlando traded Rashard Lewis to Washington for Gilbert Arenas, and traded away Vince Carter to the Suns re-acquiring Hedo Turkoglu along with Jason Richardson.
After losing 5 out of the last 6 games, the Magic definitely hit the “Panic” button and got the “wheeling & dealing” this Saturday. In a move that works for all parties, Washington can focus on their future point guard John Wall while trading away the troublesome Gilbert Arenas. In addition, the Suns will get the HIGH FLYING Vince Carter while Orlando will re-acquire Turkoglu who contributed to the early success of Orlando and is an outside threat as a shooter.
With the trading deadline approaching in February, expect a lot more deals to be made in the NBA as teams try to keep up with franchises such as the LA Lakers, Miami Heat, and Boston Celtics. In saying that (as a Knick fan) CAN WE PLEASE WORK ON THIS DEAL TO GET CARMELLO!!!
