The Orlando Magic are not merely active in trade talks as the 2013 NBA trading deadline of February 21st draws closer; no, Orlando is "aggressive" and "involved in virtually every trade scenario out there," reports Steve Kyler of HOOPSWORLD. Rob Hennigan, the Magic's general manager, has tasked top assistant Scott Perry to "[look] at everything that is possible" on the trade market."

Orlando, says Kyler, will "entertain offers for almost anyone on the roster," though they do value their young players such as Nikola Vucevic and Andrew Nicholson and won't part with any prospects unless there's a substantial return.

Kyler also says Orlando "bowed out" of trade talks centering on Memphis Grizzlies small forward Rudy Gay, who is owed more than $37 million over the next two seasons.

Orlando won't make a trade for the sake of making one, but it is clear, based on Kyler's report, that it will continue to work the phones until the deadline passes.
