The Orlando Magic are set to complete a pair of blockbuster trades that will send them Washington Wizards guard Gilbert Arenas(notes) and Hedo Turkoglu(notes) and Jason Richardson(notes) from the Phoenix Suns, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
As a prelude to the trade for Arenas, the Magic have agreed in principle to send guards Vince Carter(notes) and Michael Pietrus, backup center Marcin Gortat(notes), a first-round pick and $3 million to the Phoenix Suns for Turkoglu and Richardson, sources said.
Not sure what to make of this trade, aside from the fact the Magic still won't beat the Celtics in a 7 game series.
Hedo was an integral part of the Magic in 2009. But will he fit right back in?
I'm glad the Magic dumped Gortat. He had a few decent games vs the Celtics in the playoffs.
As for Rashard Lewis, I agree with WEEI's Paul Flannery:
I think the Celtics will be glad to see Lewis out of Orlando. KG has always said he's one of his toughest covers
What do you think?
