The Orlando Magic Make A Blockbuster Trade

SportsIllustrated – The Orlando Magic acquired troubled guard Gilbert Arenas from the Washington Wizards and Hedo Turkoglu and Jason Richardson from the Phoenix Suns in a major roster shakeup Saturday.

The Magic announced that they traded forward Rashard Lewis for Arenas. They sent Phoenix guards Vince Carter and Mickael Pietrus and backup center Marcin Gortat. Orlando also received Earl Clark from the Suns.  Continue Reading…

Gilbert Arenas, Hedo Turkoglu, Jason Richardson and Earl Clark have been traded to the Orlando Magic. The Magic decided to part ways with Vince Carter, Rashard Lewis, Mickael Pietrus, and Marcin Gortat.

This looks like a good move for the Orlando Magic who have lost 5 of their last 6 games.

Vince Carter always chokes in the playoffs, Rashard Lewis is soft, Mickael Pietrus is always outplayed by his opponent, and Marcin Gortat is a back up.

The Orlando Magic needed to make this trade to compete with the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics but I don’t know if this will put them over the top.

The Heat and the Celtics both have a core of 3 star players while the Magic have 1 star player in Dwight Howard and a bunch of good players around him.

The Orlando Magic making big moves.
