Default TRADE: Wizards trade Gilbert Arenas to Magic for Rashard Lewis!

The Orlando Magic have acquired three-time NBA All-Star guard Gilbert Arenas from the Washington Wizards in exchange for Rashard Lewis, President of Basketball Operations/General Manager Otis Smith announced today.

“Gilbert (Arenas) is a proven All-Star in this league and we’re excited to add him to our team,” said Smith. “He is one of the top scoring guards in the game, he can create scoring chances for his teammates and he is as tough as they come. Rashard (Lewis) was important in helping our franchise get to the next level, and we wish him and his family all the best in the future.”

The Orlando Magic, in the midst of a 16-9 start to the season, have dispatched Vince Carter and re-acquired forward Hedo Turkoglu in a six-player trade with the Phoenix Suns, according to multiple Internet reports.

ESPN's Chris Broussard reported that the Magic will also receive Jason Richardson and Earl Clark in exchange for Marcin Gortat, Mickael Pietrus, a 2011 first-round draft pick and cash considerations.

The deal comes on the same day as a rumor that Orlando president Otis Smith has had discussions with the Washington Wizards regarding a potential trade for guard Gilbert Arenas.

Anybody who has been watching Orlando this season know Rashard is SHIT! He's worthless, I'd take Gil over Lewis any day of this week at this point. Anything to get rid of Lewis and that damn contract.

PLEASE make this happen! Then we get to keep VC and his expiring deal and use him in another trade.

Rashard is horrible. Period.

And they're keeping Jameer which is odd... They can't possibly try a Jameer + Gilbert combo...

Arenas may not be what he was but he is still a very good player and Dwight will open up alot for him.

Really?

He's shooting 37% from the arc but 41% from the field. That's terrible from your power forward. That's near the bottom if not the bottom of the league in terms of shooting percentage for power forwards in the league. He doesn't rebound or defend. He's a one dimensional player.

Gilbert Arenas almost averages the same amount of rebounds as Lewis, so you're losing nothing there and probably actually gaining rebounds if you give Bass more minutes, he can set up team mates and get you steals. His percentages should go up with open looks from double teams on Dwight so I wouldn't worry about those.

I like this trade for Orlando if they trade Lewis for Arenas. Hate it if they trade Vince Carter & Marcin Gortat for Arenas.

Stop talking bollocks! Rashard isnt better than Arenas and from 3 this year, Lewis has been a f*cking joke! The guy is getting $20 million to average 9 points and nothing else.

That trade would make no sense though if Lewis is traded also because the reason the two were so good together is because no team could guard both of them on the perimeter successfully. They need each other to be successful. They both suck without one another.

If they can get rid of Lewis, then it was a win.

Orlando must know at this point, that they arent going anywhere with the current roster they have, so hey.....might as well try to move pieces, and get to crackin'

Lewis is a bum though, so Im not mad at Orlando for shedding this guy off....


If you're going to try to trade him, then I would guess that Arenas' contract is the closet thing right? Shit, right now Gilbert could PROBABLY provide more for Orlando than Lewis has all season....dude is GARBAGE.

I thought it was Carter/Gortat for Arenas which would be bad value.

But the Rashard Lewis for Arenas? DONE!!

Lewis is terrible and washed up; Arenas is a half-washed up, so the Magic should get a little bit better. Only problem is that they're trading one contract albatross for another, so look for Arenas to get traded in about 3 years.

The Magic better find something really good with Carter/Gortat; the future of Dwight Howard depends on it. A trade to New Orleans for Chris Paul will save the franchise; make it happen somehow. Certainly helps that David Stern is running the Hornets.

Lewis for Arenas? I'll take it.

Lewis' contract is the worst in the league. Arenas is probably third despite having one more year than Lewis.

Lewis' performance has been a slow trickle downward ever since he got busted with the performance enhancing drugs during the 2009 Finals.

But if they do that move it does mean that they need to deal either Carter or Nelson or both.
