I have no sympathy for the Orlando Magic organization. Dwight did not want to be there. He said as much to anyone that asked him, before you got conned into the loyalty conference (one of the FUNNIEST unintentional moments of comedy in sports history).
Instead of taking back a Joe Johnson, Andrew Bynum, Amare Stoudemire, ANYONE the Magic fronted on every trade and got stuck with taking.. umm…. Aaron Affalo and some guys in return for the best center in the last decade..
Now they want to completely blow it up:
They are open for business to any team that is interested in the likes of holdovers Hedo Turkoglu, Jameer Nelson, J.J. Redick, Big Baby Davis and Quentin Richardson. (And those players also might be looking to join a team that’s not competing for lottery prizes the next few seasons.)
Vets Al Harrington and Josh McRoberts, who both arrived in the Dwight deal, also will be there for the asking. What do the Magic want in return to jettison any of those deals? Ideally, expiring contracts and/or draft picks.
