InsideHoops NBA rumors updated 6:07 p.m. ET.

Quote:
On Monday, David Pingalore of WKMG-Local 6 CBS television in Orlando reported that a source of his says that the Orlando Magic and Rashard Lewis are 99 percent agreed upon a deal that would pay Lewis $15 million per season over 5 years. Pingalore also reported that it appears Darko Milicic is not in the Magic plans, and the team is probably going to let him become an unrestricted free agent. There's no article on this on their site, and we're paraphrasing it, but that's what was reported

This is where all that "creative financing" Otis has been talking about will come into play.

Looks legit now. Overpaid

The guy is pretty good but I don't know about the contract. He is going to have to stroke it for 3 every night to earn that money. If he doesn't get 25ppg than he wasn't worth it.

It is a real rumour, and the Magic can still resign Darko too if they can get Seattle into a sign and trade. Shouldn't be too hard if they offer up something decent like an expirer and a future first.

Then they get Darko woot woot.

Hedo is a good player, but he isn't a starter.

He's inconsistent as hell.

Anyway, would you rather overpay for Lewis or Jason Kapono? :)

If darko goes to seattle im betting he will develop into the player everyone thinks he can be, since he would be getting major minutes

hope orlando doesnt just let him go for zilch.

Yay. Inept management is back in in Orlando!

Lets overpay, thats always a good way to build a contender. Oh thats right, not one team that has won a title since the salary cap got it by overpaying for free agents.

Worse than the Shard thing is the Darko thing though. I'm not a fan, but lets look at the whole situation.

So we traded a servicable backup big(Cato) and our first this year for a guy we knew wasnt going to give us anything for a couple of years anyway, starts to show he might be competent and you let him walk for nothing. So we traded him, then give up on him just as he starts looking average. That's like buying stock knowing it is going down over the next month and then as soon as it starts to look like making you some money selling it. Worse than that, it's so that you can put all your money into a vastly overrated share that has certainly peaked and is about to start a steep decline.

Why did Penny have to join the Magic... If we keep Webber I'd be a Spurs fan right now. Why oh why...

Good news for the Nets that Carter will definitely have nowhere to go except staying in NJ, while personally I don't want another team in the eastern conference to get stronger.

Keep an eye on the Magic this week....they were much too quiet on draft night and have way too much cap flexibility for this to be it.

Should be interesting.

I think they've finally learned their lesson...........make your big man happy!

What I mean is that they have roster flexibility where they have a few pieces they can move (Darko/Hedo/others) and some expirers to trade to create even more room...

Also have to wait and see what Rashard's year 1 salary is going to look like and how his deal is structured.
