This doesn't make sense because I thought Jameer Nelson was a perfectly capable PG for this team.
Well, Orlando thinks it's good for them. Perhaps the change of scenery will re-kindle Arenas' fire. Trades have a way of doing that. Tyson Chandler, Mek and Felts seem to be playing better since leaving the Cats. J Rich still plays well. Perhaps now we can get Jameer Nelson and have DJ come off the bench. But is there anyone we have that Orlando would want?
