The Magic and Wizards discussed a trade that involved both Gilbert Arenas and Vince Carter this past summer.

According to sources, the conversations involving a Carter-for-Arenas swap didn't go very far, even though a deal would match up financially.

Arenas knows rumors linking him to the Magic will continue because of his relationship with general manager Otis Smith, who worked with the Warriors when the guard was with Golden State.

"That's all because of the relationship that I have with Otis Smith. He was my mentor in Golden State, and we've had a close relationship since," said Arenas.

"Because of the connection we have, I think people just associate us. It's a personal relationship. He was like a father to me. When I decide to make deals, that's who I call, and he takes his bias out of it and tells me to think like a professional."
