FanPost

Hypothetically Speaking

I saw in a recent fanpost the desire of a Houston fan to bring Rashard Lewis home. This started to make me wheels turn. First off I'd like to know if Rashard (or "Sweet Lew" as the Magic fans call him) has any affection from Houston fans. I personally really like the guy. He has a great work ethic and personality. He is a great team guy that never gets into anybody's face for not giving him the ball enough or not letting him take the last shot. (Even though he's shown he can knock it down)

Rashard is so valuable to the Magic because whatever position we put him in he has a mismatch. Whether at the 3 or the 4. So, in turn, he is a key piece in what the Magic do. However, I was thinking about how the Magic could get better if we traded him to the Rockets. Here's what I came up with.

If there was somehow a guarantee that the Orlando Magic could sign the free agents Dwyane Wade or Chris Bosh  then I would want the Magic to trade Rashard Lewis. Of course, we would have to take the expiring contract of Tracy McGrady in order to do this. Here is where the trade gets interesting for both teams.

Magic get:

Tracy McGrady

Shane Battier

Houston gets:

Rashard Lewis

Marcin Gortat

The numbers match up pretty well so that's not an issue. The Magic get nothing out of an injured T-Mac this year but do get a replacement SF in Battier. Houston gets their center they've been looking for as well as a SF slash PF. if you ask me this greatly improves your frontcourt. Well I'm done so here's what the teams would look like after the trades.

Houston:

PG - Aaron Brooks

SG - Trevor Ariza

SF - Rashard Lewis

PF - Luis Scola

C - Marcin Gortat

Magic:

PG - Jameer Nelson

SG - Vince Carter / 2010 Dwyane Wade

SF - Shane Battier

PF - Brandon Bass/ or a Chris Bosh the next year :)

C - Dwight Howard
