Magic Looking to Trade Redick, Harrington, Turkoglu, Nelson, Among Others


The Orlando Magic are ready to continue their roster overhaul, as the team is reportedly open to trading any holdovers and/or players acquired in the Dwight Howard deal. According to the Orlando Sentinel, GM Rob Hennigan and his staff are trying to trade JJ Redick, Jameer Nelson, Glen Davis, Hedo Turkoglu and others: “Vets Al Harrington and Josh McRoberts, who both arrived in the Dwight deal, also will be there for the asking. What do the Magic want in return to jettison any of those deals? Ideally, expiring contracts and/or draft picks. Odds of moving the big multi-year contracts of Turk ($11.8 and roughly $6 million), Nelson (3 years, about $20 million) and Davis (3 years, $19.4 million) are slim, of course. Redick has an expiring deal at $6.7 million so he’ll be beneficial whether he’s dealt or not. McRoberts also has an expiring contract at $3.1 million. Richardson has two years left at $2.6 million and $2.8 million. Even with two guaranteed seasons at $6.2 million and $6.6 million, Harrington has enough firepower left to interest a team looking for a scorer or trying to fill a void created by an injury. The Magic likely will be busy at the trade deadline.”

    So it’s the owner who is driving this? I can’t understand all the stupid decisions even as GM’s are swapped out.

  • Shadojoker

    Bulls..now is the time to get back into the sweepstakes by picking up some of these leftovers..

  • brian scalabrine

    unfortunately they prolly will sign at least one of these guys just to make it appear as if theyre trying not to be the cheapest team in the league

    Somehow the Orlando management thought that all these big contracts would MAGICALLY disappears. They should have ask for Paul Gasol or atleast gotten someone to rebuild a team with. All that Magic will soon turn into dust…..

    dont be so negative orlando fans. i think giving howard away in a trade for nothing was way more difficult and more of a magic trick than getting rid of the bad contracts. be confident.

    All valid sensible questions. And I am sure the Magic wish they had a competent person to answer them.

  • Ugh

    Sure you can. You just need to trade them to a team who’ll take anyone to appease a leaving talent, like Cleveland or Orl- damn.

  • kingphillip

    Sounds like ground zero to me. Wonder if they’ll land the next Mike or LBJ. I used to think LBJ and Mike (among others) have that power to change a team (skill wise, whereas Mike has/had both skill and will).

  • james

    They are looking for Free Agency I think and the drafts will reinforce whoever they got in FA.

  • monster_nw8

    Should have traded Turk and Nelson sooner

  • dumbGM

    the heat should try to trade pittman for big baby to make things worse for orlando

    Trade nelson or reddick to memphis for Tony wroten and some other player to make the contracts add up

  • Max

    Why Redick?
    Orlando is just one big ass mess.

  • Raav

    And cap space in two years time. Our picks will be more valuable with the team in tank mode. I’d much prefer to rebuild from ground up then take on a Barron’s Lopez nothing special player or a declining pau. Why try to hang tough web Chicago and Miami are going to rule the east for a few more years?
    Rebuild and hope to rise as they fall.

    Good idea.

    I suppose their last move will be – trading their “fans” too. !!^_^!!
