Even though Dwight Howard, Ryan Anderson, Jason Richardson, Earl Clark and Chris Duhon have been shipped out, the Magic are hardly finished in their attempts to make trades.
They are open for business to any team that is interested in the likes of holdovers Hedo Turkoglu, Jameer Nelson, J.J. Redick, Big Baby Davis and Quentin Richardson. (And those players also might be looking to join a team that’s not competing for lottery prizes the next few seasons.)

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.

They also have a $17.8 million trade exception for the next year from the Howard deal — believed to be the largest in league history — to utilize. For taking on a player from a team that’s, say, trying to avoid the luxury tax, the Magic hope to acquire more draft picks in that transaction.

Should Mitch do some more business with Rob Hennigan again?

If Mitch can trade Metta World Peace for Aaron Affalo, then Mitch Kupchack should have a statue in front of Staples immediately. :laughing:

Turk has the ugliest contract on that team.

Some people here probably wouldn't even want that trade if it was possible. They love MWP here :laughing:
