Marc Stein: Looks like we have a fairly significant three-way deal that has been submitted to the league just before the trade deadline.

NBA front-office sources tell ESPN.com that Orlando is acquiring Rafer Alston from Houston to fill the void created at point guard by Jameer Nelson's shoulder injury.

The Rockets will receive Memphis guard Kyle Lowry, Orlando forward Brian Cook and perhaps two other minimum-salaried players to make the finances work.

The Grizzlies will receive a first-round pick from Orlando.

Well, I said Lowry in the other thread, I was pretty close :mad:

Pretty good pickup

Good trade for Magic, It also works out for Houston they get Lowry and B.Cook and the Grizzles gets Orlando 1st Round Pick not a big deal to give up when the team is on the top of the list.

Dude Otis comes through the majority of the time. I say it all the time. He's a great GM. He's made us an elite team for years to come. Recently he got us two points guards when Nelson went down for nearly nothing at all. Otis got his covered.

Why wouldn't we? Who did you want for the Magic? Steve Nash? Chris Paul? D-Will? We were just looking for a temporary replacement for Nelson! Alston is can be a great backup pg when Nelson comes back... This is a good deal for the Magic and is a way better deal than the Lue trade!!!

I don't understand what this even means. I'm guessing he was trying to diss Magic fans but it turned out this way. Reread what you type before you hit the "post" button. What I did get out of it is that you live in Orlando but yet are a Jersey fan. Good luck with that one.
