Magic will be active at trade deadline


07:35 PM ET 01.17 | Without a star player and lacking the wins to deem anyone on the roster as untouchable, the Orlando Magic are perhaps the most conversational team in this season's trade talks. The Magic are speaking with everyone about everything, and they're not shying away from discussions regarding every one of their players. They have assets to move, after all. Guard J.J. Redick's $6.19 million contract and Josh McRoberts' $3.13 million deal are expiring, and young players like center Nikola Vucevic, guard E'Twaun Moore and wing Maurice Harkless could be players the franchise might move, according to Hoops World. With money from the Dwight Howard trade and the wide salary cap flexibility, Orlando general manager Rob Hennigan's ears are wide open this trade season.

Harrington to the Cavs for a 1st. Mr Glass needs scoring help and Casspi sucks.

CAspi does suck- and why would the Cavs want Harrington? to win an extra 3-4 games?

no point at all--- you still dont get how it works...WHO CARES if they win an extra 3-4 games? its totally worthless- all it does is hurt them in the long run...

now next year....

Can't wait to see what Hennigan has in mind. I've said all along that which direction he will go is still a mystery to me. It's interesting that he could either sign two max free agents this summer or he could trade away assets for even more draft picks.

last thing they want to do is sign another Rashard Lewis to a max deal that does not deserve one....

who on the Fa market ACTUALLY even kind of deserves a max deal?

Howard, Paul obviously do.....

does Josh Smith? would u want Orlando to give him a max?

ginobili and bynum are either old and or injury prone....

Al Jefferson, Paul Milsap, kevin Martin, Tyreke Evans? the only one thats worth close to a max might be Jefferson
