I agree with Pietrus..we could use him and not need to resign Dooling. Just play Lee at the PG to relieve nelson and Bogans at the 2 behind Turk. Milsap at the PF signed from Utah!

Starting 5: Bench
PG Nelson Livingston
SG Turk Lee/Bogans/J.J
SF Lewis Pietrus
PF Milsap Augustine
C Howard Battie/Gortat

they'd have to trade for milsap he isn't a free agent. im not to kneen on livingston either he's been sketchy since day one and he' recovering from knee injury.

what i view from the magic

pg nelson, duhon, lee
sg lee, bogans, pietrus, jj
sf lewis, pietrus, turk
pf battie, B Cook, FA pick up or trade for (milsap , haslem, Craig Smith, or Randoplh morris, or undrafted players)
C howard, gortat

who could go as a trade package
cook, turk, and jj most likely to look like trade bait. thats a good 11 mil i think. add a MLE and the VE (vet exception).

you have around 16 to 18 mil to dangle around. but to spilt that it would be magette (7.5 mil) see if he'll bite with that then you divie up the MLE 6 mil and add a lil bit of VE so 3-4 mil each for duhon and pietrus i think they'd take those chances.

as for the trade bait id look at either philly, memphis, clips any lotery team to get a draft pick and cash consideration and possibly a low salary player if they like one from any of those teams.

Corey seems more interested in teams like Boston, Utah or S.A. since they have a history of getting beyond the second round and will be able to offer more after the MLE. The Magic have tied their hands with the contracts to Lewis and Nelson. Howards contract is a given considering his worth to the team.
Pietrus is interested in playing for the Nets and the Nets are interested in him. In fact they have already called his agent 10 times.
Duhon may play for the Magic, but only if Redick is still with the team otherwise it looks like the Knicks have the upper hand getting Duhon.
Plus you will never see Riley trading players with the Magic because of the bad blood.
So right now the Magic are looking at limited players too bad they didn't want to buy a second round draft pick then they might have a pg or pf instead of trying their luck with free agents.
