but everyone is talking about 2010 . and about the knicks, nets, heat and other teams with cap space that can sign big name players.but dont sleep on my orlando magic. thats right my orlando magic. sure we wont be able to sign lebron, amare. but if you know otis smith . he always finds some way to bring in some talent or get something done. ALWAYS. i know we are over the cap and what not with rashard lewis big contract , adding vince carter contract as well, resigining gortat to starter money when hes a backup. but that wont stop otis smith from working them phones come summer 2010. you can believe that. otis smith wont call lebron james. but i believe otis smith will get someone you didnt expect to go there. but when you think about it the magic are a championship contender team, have a good coach in stan, nice city, nice weather, a franchise susperstar center in dwight, and that can attract some good free agents to atleast look at us. i know we would have to do a sign and trade to land someone. but this when gortat , bass, reddick come into play. hell we can convince someone to take vince contract as part of the deal because it would be expiring in the 2011 summer . so otis smith knows what he is doing. hes a smart &$#%#&@!. lol. and i know were not gonna get james, stoudmire or bosh. but dont be suprise if we land wade. wade has already said if it was his choice to he would wanna team up it would be dwight. and i know alot of us and even wade and bron have thought about them teaming up on the same team. but its not going to happen. wade is not pippen, he wants to be jordan. so does lebron. and besides bron aint leaving cleveland . and i know wade coming to orlando is a long shot considering you have his hometown bulls who have cash and rose, and miami his team that can land another big player with him. but dont crossout the magic though. and if we dont land wade or joe johnson who i heard were also going after.
Ha who wants Vince Carter look what he's done this year.
Vince Carter isn't playing well mainly due to chemistry issues & a hurt shoulder. Once he gets healthy the Magic will be fine. Plus chemistry should only get better.
Orlando needs to give Bass more playing time.
Overall they really don't need Joe Johnson or Wade (sure they would love to have them) but i highly doubt they get either one of them or even go after them aggressively.
Orlando just doesn't have enough financial flexibility to get a player like Joe Johnson.
I could see the Magic trading Gortat for somebody around the trade deadline but that is about it.
I like their team they just need to get healthy & the Coach Gundy needs to play the right combination of players at the right times. Still a title contender in my book.
sure orlando can make moves, but so can every team. Just saying don't sleep on this team or that team doesn't mean much. It's all speculation, and with teams like orlando who don't even have cap space, it's a ton of specualtion. Orlando and the fans need to be thinking about this year and winning now.
im glad someone on here thinks the magic can still put it together.to illpez22 you are right. we are trying to get focus for the playoffs.
outside of using Gortat or Anderson in a trade, I dont see what they can really do. Also after losing Hedo, their best playmaker is jason Williams and he may not be there next season when he will have better offers.
He was not much of a slasher with the Nets either. He just isn;t the athletic type of player he once was. His shooting tons of jump shots is nothing new.
Don't sleep on the Celtics this past offseason showed us Danny Ainge will explore all options.
orlando wont get wade nor joe johnson or any max free agent. they might be able to afforc a 5million a year player at best. and they are set at starting pg,sg,sf,center so who ever they get would probably be a average pf
