When the Orlando Magic parted ways with Dwight Howard, they accepted a trade package that was hard to believe by most NBA analysts around the league.
Orlando, however, did acquire a $17 million-plus trade exception through the blockbuster trade. And Brian K. Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel, may have revealed how the Magic organization plans to utilize the trade exception.
According to Schmitz, the Magic are hoping to acquire more draft picks from teams that are shipping away players.
He also stated that Al Harrington is likely to be traded either “this season or next summer” as a part of their rebuilding plan, even though the forward wants to make Orlando his home.
The new-look Magic will be a team that faces many questions after shipping out Howard with no real plan for the future.
If Schmitz is correct, how much time will it take the Magic franchise to become a top team in the Eastern Conference once again?
