What's going to happen is that the Magic will let him loose to talk with other teams.....then Darko & his agent will get laughed at when they ask for $10 mil per year (no joke) and he will end up signing for the 1 year tendered offer.
Read that report again.
The only thing that's concrete is the fact that Lewis is signing.
The Darko thing is pure speculation on the part of the editor.
I knew it was too good to be true.
I know Darko has been overrated for the past few years, but heck if he is out there, I wouldn't mind the Rockets signing him. If anyone can get the best out of him, it would be Rick Adelman. He would have no choice considering the Rockets have no other options besides Chucky.
Oh well, hopefully Morey does decide to go after Milicic. A sign and trade, perhaps?
Magic signs Milicic for 3 year 26M contract, with a TO in the 3rd year and trade him to the Rockets (although we have nothing useful).
Turkoglu, Redick and whoever on the bench. Do they have money for at least Mo Williams?
That's not very good. I think the improved Celtics and a healthy Bucks team beat Orlando out for a playoff spot this year. Lewis is a decent fit but not for that much money when you don't have much depth and a serious issue at PG.
And now that he'll be unrestricted, I'm also glad the Raptors don't have money to waste on Darko after some of the midseason rumours. Save some of the "overpaid" comments for when Darko is making big money and STILL disappointing.
Why does the Magic want to get Lewis when they already have Turkoglu? Gerald Wallace would've been a better choice. Cheaper and more better defensively. Plus, they can also sign Darko. They can both sign Wallace and Darko to a $35M each for 4 years.
