Yahoo is reporting that Orlando and Washington are close to a deal that would send Arenas to the Magic in exchange for Gortat and possibly Carter. The part that peaked my interest was this:
"Two league sources said the Magic also have been discussing a separate deal independent of the Wizards to create future payroll flexibility to absorb Arenas’ contract."
That sounds a lot like it could involve us. We are one of the few teams who could provide significant payroll flexibility.
So, the question is, is there anyone on the Magic roster that you would want in exchange for our expirings? I assume Brandon Bass is on everyone's list (or at least he was during the off season). Gortat would be great (but expensive) but would likely end up in Washington as part of the deal. I seem to remember rumors that Bird coveted Reddick, though he's a bit expensive now as well.
