    Who is player B? Similar stats to Bargs, but missing several PPG.
    Player A is Brook Lopez. Player B is Bargnani (the one with fewer RPG- not PPG).

    And it's a perfect example of how these surface stat comparisons mean very little. First of all, the fact that he was rumoured in talks doesn't mean Orlando would agree to it. I don't think anyone would take Lopez and a couple of mid to low first round picks for Howard. Not unless you were absolutely desperate.

    Secondly, Lopez plays defense and has shown that he can rebound (unlike Bargnani). And I don't think ANYONE thought his rebounding numbers last year were acceptable, and it's probably one of the main reasons his reputation around the league plummeted. And still I think every team would still take him over Bargnani because, as I said, he's not a one-dimensional player.

    The Magic will be desperate though.

    The Nets will likely be the only team that can take Turk in any deal without adding salary to the Magic beyond this year.

    The Magic have amnestied Arenas and sending out Turk and trading Howard leaves them with $25M in payroll for next year.

    The Magic automatically become the worst team in the league.... worse than Toronto, worse than the Bobcats hands down.

    The 2012 draft is going to be deep. Their own pick will push for a top pick in 2012. Houston's will be around 15-20 and the New Jersey's will likely be around 20-25. In a deep draft, three first round draft picks is a very good thing.


    Given the Magic's choices at this time, I think it is a good deal and the one that brings them back to relevancy the fastest.

    Yikes man ... yes, he had a horrible supporting cast. Not their 'fault', not his either. How many games would the Raps have won last year with Dirk starting in place of Bargs? 5 more? 10 at most ... and he was the MVP of the NBA finals - with an amazing supporting cast to cover up his many shortcomings as a complete basketball player.
    You think Dirk getting 10 more wins is nothing? With Dirk, the team would have vied for a playoff spot. With Bargnani they were one of the worst teams in the league. You replace Bargnani with Dirk on that "amazing" team and they would be lucky to win 47 games!

    Does that 47 games sound familiar? It's the same number that The Raptors were able to win with Bosh and a supporting cast that wasn't nearly as good as the supporting cast Dirk has right now. So I can't imagine what the Raptors would have to surround Bargnani with to reach the same level as Dallas.

    And while Dirk
