The trade of the year so far this NBA season is definitely the Magic's decision to move Rashard Lewis to receive Gilbert Arenas in exchange.
For the Magic, it was a step forward, for the Wizards, it appears to have forced them to take a step back.
Lewis' numbers have gotten better on the Wizards and has yet to find a consistent stroke beyond the arc. The Wizards have yet to see progress this season, with them losing all of their road games so far this season and now it seems as if the city of Washington D.C. is in for another groundbreaking trade.
Head coach Flip Saunders was hoping that his offense would help revive Rashard Lewis' old days as a Seattle Supersonic by putting him at the Small Forward position. The position change for Lewis was better, for his individual production, but it doesn't work out in a team's perspective as he doesn't have his young legs anymore to guard Small Forwards with the likes of Kevin Durant and Rudy Gay.
General Manager Ernie Grunfeld is probably in his office with his hands covering his face as he is sitting in the hot seat now as this franchise has not even contended for a playoff spot in the last three years.
