you never want to get rid of a young player like lee but the magic unloaded too bad contracts and vince is going to step his game up cause he knows he's playing for a contender.

I watched quite a few magic games last year (Its hard to get them over in the uk ;)) and courtney lee is a very good player. he didn't play like a rookie. hes got a lot of potential (Is that how you spell it??lol)

i genuinely think this was a great trade for the magic who got a penetrator (something we seriously lacked in the finals) in vc and a young forward in anderson.

Because they got a potential all-star at the same position in return.Vince is going to cause his own match up problems.Do you double him when he has it going?Also he is the only star on the perimeter this team has. star guard and star center usually make a good combination.

Also the fact that the Magic also received a talented young player themselves in Ryan Anderson helped. I don't know why people forget about him, he's a good shooter for a big who should fit right in with Orlando. He was the pick immediately before Lee in last years draft and had a pretty productive rookie year putting up 7 and 5 and 20 mins a game.




this.

And Anderson was actually higher on Orlando's draft night board than Lee. If he were still available, the Magic would have picked him instead.

Carter, Bass, Barnes, Williams>Turkoglu, Battie, Lee, and Alston

Plus they get Jameer back healthy and re-sign Gortat. Yes, they are giving up a guy who's 9 years younger, but they see an opportunity to win now.
