John Denton is The Man for bringing us the scoop that the Orlando  Magic are talking with free-agent power forward Chris Webber. His source indicates the only issue is playing time: Webber wants to be a significant contributor, not a role player. Considering that 3QC readers made Webber their top choice for big-man help in a poll I conducted last week, this news should please many Magic fans.

I'm not sold that Webber solves our rebounding issues, but I look at it this way. We can do a lot worse, and we probably can't do much better without trading significant pieces. We only need a big-man rental anyway, so if the Magic bring Webber aboard, it'd be a good move.
