Anyway, they may have overpaid a little but who doesn't?

The guy put up 23/7 on 46% FG & 39% 3FG last year...

The Magic just made a statement that they're trying to win, and win now.

Well, Damn.

I would have loved Lewis in NY, But no where near that kind of money. Thank You Isiah for not being dumber then Otis in this situation.

Why?

They let Darko Go? Ouch.

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).

Wishful thinking :).

So now the Magic are this?

Nelson
Ariza?
Lewis
Battie?!?!
Howard

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.

The Magic will be a better team... May have paid too much, but it's the nature of business these days. We'll see how it works out.

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.

C - Dwight/Battie/Augustine
PF - Darko/Garrity/Outlaw
SF - Turkoglu/Ariza/Bogans
SG - Wallace/Dooling/Reddick
PG - Nelson/Arroyo/Diener

Hedo comes off the bench now, or they start both and have lewis running PF. He's going to get killed gaurding the Power Fowards.

At least this takes them out of the running for Gerald Wallace.

edit: When will people realize Wallace is a natural SF? He doesn't have the requisite shooting ability to play SG.

I really thought that the Magic would go after Bibby, or Billups. Maybe even Gerald Wallace.
