Good. The VC experiment failed miserably in Orlando.

Orlando Magic, Phoenix Suns agree on multiplayer deal


    The Orlando Magic, already in serious trade talks with the Washington Wizards about acquiring Gilbert Arenas, have agreed to a deal in principle with the Phoenix Suns, according to league sources.

    The trade returns former Magic star Hedo Turkoglu, along with Jason Richardson and Earl Clark, to Orlando in exchange for Vince Carter, Marcin Gortat, Mickael Pietrus, a 2011 first-round pick and cash considerations.

    Orlando, losers of five of its last six games, is also close to acquiring Arenas for Rashard Lewis, sources said.


Orlando always had a few big men to spare, so losing Gortat shouldn't be a big deal. Howard's still got a solid backup in Brandon Bass.

Shipping out the heartless VC and getting Hedo AND J-Rich from Phoenix is a steal for Orlando. I'll be REALLY impressed if they can follow that up with the proposed Arenas/Rashard swap.

EDIT:
And mere hours later, Rashard for Arenas is a done deal

I really liked watching the Magic when they had the Hedo/Lewis combo and would liked to have seen them try that since they got J-Rich as well before shipping Lewis off for Arenas.


Oh yeah, and if it makes Nash that much closer to being a Knick than I love the deal.

I could not be more unhappy today. Here's hoping a newfound lack of defense is their downfall, because offense sure ain't gonna be.

Now the question for Orlando is, if Gilbert Arenas is going to make a complete jackass of himself again in the near future.

Now there are too many ball handlers on this team. SVG has already said that Nelson is the starting PG, which makes no sense because Arenas is the better player and Nelson while good probably needs to be traded now for another big guy. Hedo thrived the first time because he played point during crunch time and let Nelson roll without the ball and causing matchup problems at the top. The problem is Arenas always needs the ball as well.

This team is still missing that leader on the court that keeps everyone's eye on the prize.

This is now a really weird team of mostly guards and Howard.

What the...?! We just got Al Harrington back only to trade him to Golden State? Why? Any Warriors fans want to give me some good news about this trade, other than "at least you got rid of Stephen Jackson"? Please?
