OMG!!! A Trade Idea Post Not Involving Dwight Howard!!!



Yes people this here post is Superman free (sponsored by Lex Luthor). Lex_luthor_super_super_medium


Alot has gone well so far this season for the Magic. The team is winning despite the circus surrounding the organization and despite Otis Smith. #FireOtis!!!!

Of course not all is so peachy since this is a trade thread. This hastily written panic laden thread is based on the play of one Jameer Nelson. He has just been well... in a word... awful this year. I dont know if its his conditioning post lockout or his emotions but he is not getting it done this year. Os-jameer-nelson-hawks_medium


I dont want him traded since I still think he's a good player and can play a key role for this team. Ideally I would like to use him as a no conscience scoring guard off the bench ala Jason Terry, Jamal Crawford, Lou Williams or Nate Robinson. This would work in his favor since his low assist numbers wont matter as much since he'll be the #1 option with the 2nd unit. Plus there is the added benefit of him going up against 2nd team PG's.

So whose the guy that's gonna replace Jameer as the starter? Nba_g_sessions_480_medium


I like Cleveland Cavaliers backup PG Ramon Sessions as the guy. Sessions has been a starting PG in this league before with decent results. The key stat I like about Ramon is his adjusted assists per game which is 10.6. Of which I think he could do even better on this team since he will have better shooters on this team than he's ever played with. He is a bit unpredictable from 3 point land but he makes up for that with playmaking (assists!!)

Right now he's backing up #1 overall pick Kyrie Erving averaging 21 MPG this year. He is scoring 9 ppg and dishing 4.8 apg. He is also only 25 years old. Four years younger than our existing PG. YOUTH!!!! So now its on to what I think it would take to land him. Sessions is making a tidy sum of 4.25 million this year a with a player option of 4.5 next year. This is a slight problem for the Magic. I see 2 feasible ways of going about this.

Option #1 Ramon Session (4.25) + Ryan Hollins (2.48) for Jason Richardson (5.4) + Daniel Orton (1.1) plus picks?

Option #2 Ramon Session (4.25) for Chris Duhon (3.5) + Earl Clark (1.2) plus picks?
