Dwight + Vince = Dunk City

Good trade for both teams. Hopefully the Nets' coach will actually PLAY Rafer Alston :lol

Well to be fair since i've been so damn negative on the Cavs today, this is basically exchanging Turkolu for Carter, and Carter has faded in the playoffs before, so that is the downside. The upside is if you catch him when he's motivated he is a ***** and a huge upgrade on Turk.

That sounds like a Rod Thorn trade.

Clearing out every salary he can for 2010, but making sure he gets one young talent back. This case Courtney Lee.

Jason Kidd got them Devin Harris.
Richard Jefferson got them Yi Jianlian.
Vince Carter gets them Courtney Lee.

:eek: Good trade for both teams. Courtney Lee will become a good player in this league. With this trade I'm guessing the Magic won't resign Hedo as they will be far over the luxury tax.

Nelson
VC
Peitrus
Lewis
Dwight

we didnt really have that much of a chance at getting him.

Congrats though Orlando. Good timing too. The time i get up and get some juice, you go off and trade for Vince Carter :cheers: . Im getting another drink. Hopefully the Cavs will get someone this time.

Good trade for Orlando but they still need a big to help Howard. Losing Battie makes them even thinner up front.

I hope Orlando and Cleveland just keep one upping each other all night on player moves. I hate the Celts the most so this is great.

Am i the only one who will go an make the trades now on 2k9 like an idiot?

Will they still be able to sign Hedo?

Nice trade for the Magic if it goes through

I'm a big VC fan, but this is one of the better trade proposals I've seen involving him. I wouldn't be too upset with this one.

IMO, Orlando gains nothing from this trade. They get rid of 2 key players in the Finals run and a good defensive big off the bench for a star past his prime and has known to not try his hardest. Not to mention Turkoglu isn't coming back if they're getting Carter.
