Report: Gilbert Arenas Traded to the Magic

Rumors that Gilbert Arenas would be making his merry way down to Central Florida have lingered for months , but that mahoosive contract of his had evidently been a deterrent for the Magic. The word on the wires now, however, is that Otis Smith, whose close relationship with Hibachi is said to be a factor, has finally agreed to, ahem, pull the trigger on a deal that would bring Gilbert Arenas to the Orlando Magic.

What is not known at present is exactly what the Washington Wizards will be receiving in exchange for their former franchise player. While Vince Carter is said to be a likely candidate, there is also talk that Rashard Lewis and his similarly bloated contract may instead be heading north to the District of Columbia. Whatever the case transpires to be, what is fairly certain is that Gilbert Arenas, the eccentric combo guard with a history equally coloured by controversy and brilliance, will be joining Dwight Howard and co. in Orlando in the very near future.

So, what are your thoughts on this one? Could Gilbert Arenas recapture his All-Star form after a change of scenery or is this trade a desperation move by the Magic? Let us know what you think by leaving a comment below.
