I don't know how that would be possible..maybe some sort of sign-and-trade deal?

Turkgolu

Hedo is opting out.

And would be dumb to leave now.

Money talks.

And the Magic will pay him the most.

This.

Why would they pay him the most if rings>money? That would be stupid.

Because having Hedo greatly improves their chances of winning a title...

Can they afford both?

With Magic ownership saying they will dip into the LT to keep him............YES.

Exactly...they're gonna use that luxury tax for sure to keep Hedo here in Orlando.

I need to hear it from a non Magic fan

Has to be..........Hedo was rumored to be S&T for awhile. Bosh and Boozer are restricted. But good lord, I will go absolutely fcukin nuts if this happens. I thought Otis Smith was a panzy when it came to getting FAs...........but now

Chief operating officer Alex Martins said the team is prepared to go over the luxury tax for the first time in its history, perhaps giving the Magic the space they need to re-sign the soon-to-be free agent Turkoglu and remain a contender to return to the NBA finals.

He said the Magic have sold about 4,000 extra season-ticket plans during the playoffs for next year, putting them at about 11,000. Their new arena, the Orlando Events Center, is scheduled to open for the start of the 2010 season and increase revenue - which is the primary reason they can go into the luxury tax if necessary.

This was written before they obtained Carter

Why would it? They can still do it? They just need to negotiate a fair contract with him. He WANTS to play in Orlando.

Im assuming Carter has a max contract. Does somebody have a salary cap breakdown?
