The Magic are once again the most scrutinized, and unappreciated team in the NBA once again. With Turkoglu in Toronto now, nobody thinks that they are Finals worthy anymore.
Seeing that the Magic offered Turk a $45 million deal he took $5 million more to go to Toronto and play with a team that is inferior to the Magic. Instead the Magic traded for Vince Carter, acquired Brandon Bass, Matt Barnes, and Retained rising big man Marcin Gortat.
Bringing in Carter gives the Magic a replacement for Turk, a much more talented replacement who can make his own plays and doesn't rely on the pick and roll.
Brandon Bass gives Dwight much needed help on weak side defense, where well Dwight was weak.
Matt Barnes brings fire off the bench, and they have returning All-Star point guard Jameer Nelson. The Magic will make a strong push for the finals, and may even have a rematch with L.A..
