Magic trade for Gilbert Arenas a “definite possibility.”
The Orlando Magic are in a tough spot. One season removed from the NBA finals the ground is shifting beneath their feet -- Chicago could be a power, Miami could return to power, maybe both... the road to the finals in the East is getting harder.
Desperate times call for desperate measures -- and nothing is more desperate than taking on Gilbert Arenas.
Maybe the real stumbling block should be the four years, $80 million still owned Arenas. Or that he has always been a high-volume shooter -- last season (before the suspension) he was scoring 22.6 points per game but needed 19.3 shots per game to get that because he shot just 41 percent. Which is pretty much the case before his injury problems in 2007. And he doesn’t get to the line like he used to.
Arenas still has some ball in him, but if the Magic think he is a big upgrade over Vince Carter they will be in for a surprise.
