Orlando Magic Get Some Additional Magic from the Nets


One more abracadabra trick has been added to the Orlando Magic’s arsenal for the 2009-2010 Season! Yes, we just exited the playoff-run season, but looking ahead to the Magic’s upcoming season just got that much more exciting with the addition of NBA All-Star Vince Carter! The Orlando Magic has acquired Vince Carter, as well as Ryan Anderson, from the New Jersey Nets, in a 3-person trade deal. The Orlando Magic gave up players Rafer Alston, Courtney Lee, and Tony Battie from the playoff-run team, but has in turn gained a true all-around superstar, with hopes of one day holding the National Championship trophy!

The eight-time All-Star, who averages around 23.5 points a game, is a great new asset for the Magic as they look towards the 2009-2010 Season! The 6-foot 6-inch, 220 lb., shooting guard brings the talent and skills needed to execute a championship for the Orlando Magic. Just shy of winning an NBA Championship title this past season, the Magic needed one more “big-shot” player to battle against the NBA powerhouse teams of the Cleveland Cavaliers and the, NBA Championship winners, Los Angeles Lakers. As the current holder of the NBA playoff record for most three-point field goals made in one game and holding the record for the most three-point goals made in one-half during the playoffs, Vince Carter might be JUST what Orlando needs to keep their consistency in the “big” games.

Eight players have definitely re-signed with the Orlando Magic for the coming season. With spots still open, the Magic will look to the free agents to fill the remaining slots, starting July 1. Due to the large inquisition of Vince Carter and still footing the large bill for all-star greats of Dwight Howard and Rashard Lewis, the Magic have now been backed up against the NBA’s luxury tax threshold. In the simplest of terms, the Magic are tight on what their money will allow for acquiring more players. Magic favorite Hedo Turkoglu might be the next out for the Magic. After turning down a $35 million/4 year contract from the Magic, it appears as if Turk will walk away to teams such as Detroit, Houston, Portland, or Sacramento who might be able to foot his aim for a $50 million/5 year contract.

The upcoming season will definitely be interesting as powerhouse Magic powerhouse players Dwight Howard, Rashard Lewis, and, now, Vince Carter combine their “magical” powers together! After a run at the NBA Championship Title, the Magic will be out with a vengeance wanting to take back the Championship crowning title to their hometown! Tickets will be difficult to attain with the newly attained gems to the team, the All-Star lineup cast, and being still in the spotlight as the runner up to a National title!
