The Orlando Magic were dominating the NBA to begin the season, and then December came. Something has gone wrong for the Magic lately, and it has resulted in five losses over the last six games. We’ve known for a while that the Magic were interested in acquiring Gilbert Arenas, but we didn’t know they were going to blow up their roster to make it happen.
Pro Basketball Talk called our attention to a lot of dealing the Magic did on Saturday. First, Orlando sent Vince Carter, Mikael Pietrus, and Marcin Gortat to the Phoenix Suns in exchange for Jason Richardson, Hedo Turkoglu, and Earl Clark. When that deal was finished, the Magic then traded Rashard Lewis to the Washington Wizards to get their boy Gilbert Arenas.
