The Magic are expected to offer free agent point guard Chris Duhon a three-year deal worth $10 million, according to The Orlando Sentinel.

Duhon could make a decision as early as Thursday between the Magic or the Knicks.

"The visit here went really well," Duhon's agent said of his meeting in Orlando on Wednesday. "Chris wants to help a team win a championship. That's what Orlando is trying to do. That's different than a team looking to rebuild. He was flattered that a team of this caliber wants him.

Bro trust me, I wanted Maggette really bad too but it wouln't work out. We also need a back up point gaurd and Duhon has the size and is a pass 1st shoot 2nd gaurd. Signing him means we can also get someone else to.
If we did get Maggette, we could offer 1.8mil to whoever else wanted to sign. Now how many decent players sign for that much. Plus Lee doesn't play PG.

Yea I agree with you on the fact that we can get 2 players with the mid level exception split. I just hope we can get a good PF like a haslem. If we could work something out like a sign and trade with arroyo and redick for haslem that would be great. Lee just looks like he has the ability and the body to be a big PG which would be great to have. kinda like a dooling

Yeah i really like Haslem too. I wish they did a S&T that way we can look to get a starting SG on the market. I haven't seen Lee really play and dont know his ball handling skills but he is a 2 gaurd for sure.

i think the magic do need a back up point guard but i think id rather them resign dooling but maybe be they will because dooling is a combo guard. but i dont think we will resign evans then because it will be too many guards but i dont count on both of them coming back next season. i hope we resign dooling and i would have like magette but i guess now we can sign a big man like haslem which we do need.

I'd so much rather have Dooling than Duhon.

Maggette isn't coming, we have to accept that. We have too many roster spots to fill, and not enough money. But we can do a lot better than Duhon, IMO. Not a fan of him at all. He doesn't seem like a team player, a guy who took practices off, missed shootarounds, all because of stupid excuses. Plus, he's horrendous offensively. At least Dooling can hit a shot. Dooling just as good defensively, and is bigger, something that matters. I want Dooling back.

id much rather have dooling too but i think if we can get both that be good and then trade bogans and reddick for a big man because dooling is a combo guard and can play shooting guard when duhon is in the lineup it doesnt make sense for us to get rid of dooling especially if were loosing evans as well. dooling is a good defender he can shoot and he is a proven sixth man for us he probably could have started too. we need him no doubt howard lewis turk and nelson are the main core but dooling is an important role player no doubt

They said Duhon is looking for a long term deal, like 3-5 years so he will probably end up with the Magic. I'm surprised, they said they had Dwight their to help recruit him too. I wish he had a better offensive game cause hes solid defensively which is good.

They said the Heat are intrested in Dooling. If they want him and if we dont, would we be able to do a S&T with him and maybe Haslem?

I found this and thought that this was rather interesting, nothing serious. Pretty messed up of Nike though.

As much as i want duhon and maggette, what we really need is a pf... Magic can't win a championship with Lewis as pf... He's a sf...
Look at the other teams now:
Aldridge/Oden, Bosh/Oneal, Gasol/Bynum, If they sign brand back; Brand/Kaman, Love/Jefferson, Amare/Shaq

Too many big guys!!! Dwight can't handle them all! I sure hope that the mavs, the magic or the blazers get the championship next year! not the lakers!!!

Who did Duhon pick... The Knicks. The Magic look to resign Dooling now, but will he leave to the Heat.

Yup thats what they were saying and they gave him the whole MLE! The knicks are crazy.
Does this mean we are back in the race for Maggette?

Hopefully.

The Knicks overpaid him because they could. They needed a PG more than any team could need a PG. He's still only on a 2 year deal, so its a logical move.

I hope I see Maggette in a Magic jersey.

I've always appreciated Dooling's game. I just hope he wants to come back.

I hope now he doesn't want the whole MLE since he saw what Duhon got.
