    Default Intresting Trade Rumor

    The deal: Orlando's No. 1 pick and point guard Reece Gaines to Indiana for the No. 29 pick and power forward Al Harrington.

    Why it makes sense: Harrington has been aching for years to get off the Indiana bench, but will never do so as long as Jermaine O'Neal is there. He could be a star given the right opportunity. He's tough, athletic and super confident. Okafor could do for the Pacers what Ben Wallace is doing for the Pistons. His arrival would take some of the pressure off O'Neal and he could be a shot-blocking demon from the weakside.

    Why it doesn't make sense: Harrington is a bit of a tweener. Some GMs can't decide if he's better suited playing power forward or small forward. And he is much better on the offensive end than he is on the defensive end. And that's not good news for a Magic team that was dreadful defensively last season.

    If they are willing to give so much for AL , I would Jump on it HARD

    I might feel like we raped them if we got that deal

    does seem like alot for so little , but I think the thing that seems obvious is Tmac isn't available

    In a heartbeat....just to watch the Piston fans pee down their legs...
    j/k Kstat


    Uh Harrington USED to be a defensive demon, it was that that made him a fan fav until he decided he'd rather score. Perhaps he could get back to that with a change of climate.

    But #1 for Harrington??? We only got a #5 for Antonio Davis fer cryin out loud....grab it!

    Okafor and O'neal in the paint??

    "Oh-Oh!!"

    I'd do it. Al is a great guy to have, but I think Okafor is going to be huge in this league.

    I think he will be great too , so if we get this deal I would be disappointed if we didn't jump on it , I don't think your gonna find another team offer such a Deal for AL , not saying the Magic would go through with it ..but I would hope we seriously consider this deal if it comes our way.

    Why would Orlando have to throw anyone in the deal?

    This deal is way too lopsided to be true IMHO.

    What is it a smokescreen for? Assuming it was floated by someone in the loop and not created by a sportswriter, it must be a smokescreen or trial balloon.

    How far under the cap are the Magic? Al's salary for a pick would eat up a good chunk of whatever space they have.

    actually there salray for this year was almost 10k cheaper than ours

    Tmac and Grant hill take up more than 50% of there salray

    and ours goes up even more next year 62,838,428

    that;s not couting Brewer , Kenny Anderson and James Jones , who are all free agents this next year. I realize we wont resign kenny but we have to replace him.

    Hmm.... seems like they'd try to make other moves before this deal could be made. Still don't see it happening, if only because it's too good for us.

    Any GM that would trade the chance to get Okafor should lose his job immediately. He will do for the Orlando franchise what Robinson did for San Antonio. Solid citizen - great for the community.

    It's sad because it's true. We won't get him.

    But man, it sure would be nice if we did. He's gonna be something special.

    It wouldn't be Orlando's first Bone Head Move

    Remember this ?

    Magic in 1993, the year Orlando sent the top overall pick (Chris Webber) to Golden State for the No. 3 pick (Penny Hardaway) and three future first-rounders.

    Actually, that looks like a good move....who did they get with those 3 first rounders?
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    Penny was pretty darn good for quite a while. They have let some extremely good players get away though [though not all their fault].

    Looking at all the trades in that article, I'm suprised how lopsided they are against the Magic, except maybe the first two. Looks like it's just a writer coming up with as many ideas has he can; doubt there's much truth to any of them.

    Orlando would have to have a hole in the head to make a trade that lopsided. hey i wouldnt pass up the opportunity though, with the number one pick in the draft no doubt it would be immediate help no matter what position. Unless we take another scrub from a country we never heard of before. ed:
