As a true Magic fan, I'm starting to wonder if Otis is ever going to pull the trigger on a deal to get Dwight some help. Like most of you, I want Dwight here forever. I think to achieve this we need to be on the hunt for expiring contract players.
One prime example would be Steve Nash. I think we definitely have the assets to get him, and his contract is up after this season.I've heard rumors about this deal but that's all. Even if he retired next year, it would free up the space to bring DWill here. I'm not saying he would come, but at least it would give us a shot!
In the long run, there are plenty of star caliber players on the market right now with expiring deals. Paul P, Kevin G, Ray A, we should be going after any number of them but instead we are doing nothing.
If we do trade Dwight, these deals should still be made to free up cap space for next year! Let them walk in FA if they don't want to resign for cheap. Do this, and we have real money to play with. We also have whatever pieces we get back from the Dwight deal. It's a win win situation.
Overall, the main goal is keeping Dwight. Time is running out and we are stuck in neutral. It's time to shift gears. Make a move Otis.
