Penny Hardaway (1999-2004) vs. Pat Garrity (1999-2008)

New, comments

Pat Garrity retired as an end-of-the-bench NBA role player, rarely making the active roster unless someone ahead of him in the rotation got injured. And, to be frank, he has not been NBA-relevant in years. However, he finishes his career having played in 513 career games for the Orlando Magic, the second-highest total in franchise history. That's why there's a lot of Pat content here in the wake of his retirement: dude's earned it, 14th man or not.

The Magic acquired Garrity, a rookie, from the Phoenix Suns in exchange for Penny Hardaway, who became disgruntled in Orlando. Without comment, I present to you this table, which shows the players' totals with the franchises to which they were traded.
