" Magic will get Arron

"

Magic will get Arron Afflalo, Al Harrington, Nikola Vucevic and one protected future first-round pick from each of the other three teams.

In addition, the Magic will be getting other pieces, including 76ers No. 1 draft pick Moe Harkless, a source told Stein.

"

If this is true the Magic should be ecstatic on what they have managed to get in return... Depth anyone..

Lakers are the winners of

Lakers are the winners of this trade for the sole reason that they were able to maintain Pau Gasol. The Magic just want young pieces to build around for the future and they have done that. Imagine this lineup in a few years:

PG- Nelson

SG- Afflalo

SF- Harkless

PF- Nicholson

C- Vucevic

That's a solid start to rebuild.

The Sixers are winners too, but only if Bynum decides to sign an extension.

Magic got robbed. I'm sorry,

Magic got robbed. I'm sorry, this was not a good deal by any means for them. They traded the best center in the NBA for 5 late first round picks and a guy on a five year contract...not that impressive, nor the best deal they could have gotten

Honestly, they had to get

Honestly, they had to get Dwight out of Orlando ASAP, and this was the best deal presented to them. I heard some Magic fans were ready to sell or demand refunds on their season tickets. Him staying 'til the trade deadline in February would've spead the Dwightmare disease. It's not that they got robbed, they were in a tough spot and got what they felt was best for them to move forward.

Exactly what I was thinking.

Exactly what I was thinking. How is this deal any better then getting Lamb, Jones, and White? They didn't even shed any sallary because AA is on a long term deal on 7+ million.

I don't understand how I get

I don't understand how I get negatives for Reporting what an ESPN analyst said on twitter. lol

Oh well the trade is done. I like it for everyone, but I really like it for the Philadelphia 76ers. Starting 5 will probably be Bynum, Hawes, Thaddeus Young, Evan Turner, and Jrue Holiday, with Nick Young and Arnett Moultrie on the bench. Nice team, this really makes the east playoff picture a little more exciting. It's also an addition by subtraction, I think trading Andre Igoudala will make Evan Turner better, also Evan Turner's general improvement.

Dwight put them in a bad

Dwight put them in a bad position to begin with. He screwed the organization when he decided to opt in. He didn't help the team when was only willing to go to Brooklyn or LA.

So

So Orlando decided to take the worst offer possible? I think they should have just did a deal with Houston and found a way to dump some salary. I like Afflalo, but I don't think he is a great pickup for a bad team. The good news, is if they get Harrington, he always does well when he gets on a bad team :/.

The Lakers don't need an NBDL team. Why would they when they can let Orlando draft franchise centers and then they go straight to LA after a few years of seasoning?

The 76ers flipped Andre

The 76ers flipped Andre Iguodala into Andrew Bynum, the second best center in the NBA. Hell yea... I'd say they win this trade big time.

I'm very happy for Bynum. He finally gets his chance to be the guy... He'll be the #1 option on the 76ers and he won't disappoint. I'm sure 76ers fans are very very happy right now.

And Evan Turner is definitely smiling right now. He'll have more of an opportunity to be himself now.

Nets

Wow, Magic turned down a Net deal with Lopez, Humphries, Brooks, 4 first round picks and salary releif ( Nets taking back bad contracts) ... BUT they took this deal??? Hate Lopez all u want, he is better and has more potential then anyone in this current deal.

think it over. My money is on the deal falling apart with Howard saying he doesn't want to play for the Lakers.

The Magic better make some

The Magic better make some magic happen with the 3 first roud picks they recieved. Because the only promising young player they got in return is Moe Harkless. The 76ers and Lakers definitely Won, and got what they wanted out of the deal.

I live near Philadelphia and

I live near Philadelphia and occassionally go to see some Sixers game and from that stand point I'm excited about this trade.

Sixers giving up Iguodala, Vucevic, Harkless, and a future number one for Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson definitely makes them a better team. The big concern is obviously Bynum re-signing (and Howard re-signing for the Lakers). The Sixers line-up is deep and pretty versatile now, it's hard to say who starts, but I'll make a projection:

C: Bynum : off the bench Hawes and Brown

PF: Allen : off the bench Thaddeus Young and Moultrie

SF: Turner : off the bench Dorrell Wright

SG: Richardson : off the bench Nick Young

PG: Holliday: off the bench ? Ivey and Wayns idk if either really see much playing time

The reason I say Allen probably starts now is for the sake of balance and spacing on the floor. If Brown is out there with Bynum the spacing won't be great, Thaddeus Young could start at power forward, but Doug Collins might want to keep him as sixth man. I don't think Thad would start at SF because the Sixers are going to want someone on the floor with great shooting range which in my opinion will be Richardson.

This is a great deal for the Lakers getting Dwight for Bynum and also for the Nuggets adding Iguodala to an already scrappy tough team.

Right now I'm scratching my head at the Magic. So you deal Dwight and get Aaron Afflalo, Al Harrington, Nikola Vucevic, Moe Harkless, and a protect first round lottery pick from 3 playoff teams. Right now I'm having a hard time seeing how this is better than Lamb, White, Jones, and likely Kevin Martin from Houston. My guess is after summer league the Rockets must have decided to keep the young guys. I'm sure Rob Hennigan thought he could get a better deal on draft night and right after while it was still on the table. It's probably not going to be a great year for the Magic, but it might be reminiscent of when Doc Rivers won coach of the year as their head coach. A team they worked extremely hard even though they didn't have a lot of talent.

Lakers did amazing to give up

Lakers did amazing to give up Bynum for Dwight pretty much straight up.. that pick will be about 27th or later with the team they got now.

Nuggets also win... wow they will amazing to watch in transition with Lawson, Iggy, Faried and Mcgee running the floor. Throw in Galinari and their 5 starters all have all-star abiliy, hopefully they can put it together.

Sixers get the best offensive center in the league and also free up more playing time for Evan Turner.. win win

Magic make me happy by ending these rumours. They might have gotten a better deal but I love Afflalo, and Vucevic and Harkless have potential to be decent starters.

All in all a good trade for everyone, some might debate Magic could have done better but they can now finally start rebuilding, better getting this trade done now than at the trade deadline when Dwight would have had them around the 6th seed, they probably would have fallen out of the playoffs and settled for a late lottery pick, they will now be in the hunt for a top 5 pick.

Unbelievable. I come home to

Unbelievable. I come home to see the Lakers traded Dwight. Well ok, I can live with that because the rumors had Bynum and Gasol being shipped out. Then I find out the Lakers get to keep Gasol and Bynum doesn't even go to Orlando? Why the hell do the Lakers get so many 1-sided deals? This is insane. Orlando screwed themselves big time with this.

David Stern

That guy is so bias, all he really give a f**k about, are the big market teams. How did the basketball Gods let this happen? Wait the Basketball Gods are the Lakers and Celtics, so the Lakers keep Pau, trade only Bynum and a First to get Howard. The League always aloud the Lakers to be relevant, if the league keeps this up, it will be over for small market teams. What is the point of the "Salary Cap"?

I'm wondering why Denver did

I'm wondering why Denver did this trade? Iggy is a SF right? Which is the same position their best player Gallinari plays?

I think Orlando did ok in this trade. Not the very best they could have got but they got young players in Vucevic and Harkless, some cap I believe I read somewhere they will be major players in 2014 free agency, also got some draft picks which will be late but let's be honest....any pick they were getting was going to be late picks.

Philly won big in this by getting Bynum and finally unloading Iggy after years of him being on the trading block.

L.A. basically speaks for itself....win now mode for Nash and Kobe and a future cornerstone center.

Great deal for the Lakers,

Great deal for the Lakers, Iggy going to Denver is a strange one as they have Gallinari at SF and Faried at PF, my first thought was Bynum would have been a great fit in Denver but with Faried at PF and McGee just resigned they perhaps don't need him.

Orlando don't great great assets but they will get 3 future picks but they could be a few years away, the Lakers cannot send anything before 2017, Philly have to send a pick to Miami from this year's draft day trade so maybe only the Denver one is this year and it could even be the one Denver get from the Knicks for the Melo trade.

Orlando are still left with Hedo's contract but could move J-Rich in the trade to ease the cap situation and they have acquired a number of assets in Harkness, Vucevic, Afflalo, Harrington via this trade plus with the recently drafted Nicholson and Ayon who came from NOH who combined with Nelson, Q-Rich, Turko and Davis maybe Orlando hope they could mould into a relevant team with a true star player maybe like what Denver do out West.

Realistically it may well be that Coach Vaughn has to look at his team and decide who the key players will be going forward and start building around them and let the new GM then look to see what deals he can do with the none essential players and try to generate some trade value.

Now makes you wonder why

Now makes you wonder why Orlando didn't pull the trigger with the Nets in March when Howard was on the block they would have got Brook Lopez and a shot at Lillard, Barnes, Ross, Drummond etc. They would have had two nice building pieces in place plus the Nets would have probably thrown in another first rounder at least.

It's just suddenly occured to me that D-12 will have Steve Nash feeding him, that could be totally scary. The Lakers have given up a very good asset but have upgraded the position with perhaps the only player in the NBA who would be a clear upgrade and they have shifted Bynum out East.

As regards Philly, they have got one of the best C's out East now who they will surely look to make one of their main offensive weapons in order to resign him and although they may be sad to lose Iggy and a couple of nice assets, it does allow Turner to play in his favoured position and he can look to develop quicker now. If Bynum does resign then they have a nice long term combo in him and Turner.

Iggy will be a great pick up for Denver and we assume that Coach Karl will use him to replace Afflalo at SG but Iggy can see minutes at SF to fill Harrington's void or if Gallinari moves to PF when Faried is on the bench or they decide to go smallball. Iggy will give a youngish team extra experience and will fit into Denver's no thrills hard working approach, also it puts him on a play off team still so that keeps him happy and he'll get his fair share of shots and ball handling. Plus maybe Coach Karl can help him improve his game in some areas as he may have a few things he notices and advises Iggy of.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Honestly llperez that shouldn't be an issue. People keep saying it might be hard for Dwight and Kobe to coexist but the truth is Dwight doesn't need 20 shots per game like Shaq or David Robinson. The last two seasons he averaged 13.4 FGA per game, and in 2010 he averaged just 10.2 FGA. Bynum averaged 13.3 FGA last year in LA. Howard doesn't need that many touches to play his game, he should fit in just fine.

For us, I'm not gonna lie I'm pretty gutted. We lost our best player and my favourite player and we got 2 middling prospects and lottery protected draft picks in return. I really wish Orlando had taken the Nets deal last year, or had worked out something with the Rockets before the draft but what's done is done. Time to move forward. Let the Shabazz Sweepstakes begin
