    What would you want from the Magic if they would want to re-acquire Lee?

    Maybe 12 years ago.

    Lewis is a nice player but that contract is beyond hideous, Vince is okay as a salary dump but not really worth giving up Hill and/or Lee to make it happen. Only deal i'd do with the Tragics would involve the Polish Hammer for that nice TE, IF Yao breaks down again.

    Lewis has a contract that's like equivalent to our national debt.

    No thanks.

    And $120 million ago.

    And there's this part:

    Given that Jared Jeffries is also an "ending deal," why would the Rockets do this? To dump the rookie contracts of Jordan Hill and Courtney Lee?

    I would offer them Courtney Lee for Dwight Howard. I am not sure if they would go for it, though.

    I would want Dwight Howard. Its not the Rockets fault the Magic traded away Courtney Lee for a broke down Vince Carter, so why should they give him back?

    Rashard Lewis or Vince Carter? Two soft men with a huge contract. The gay must be from Orlando, he just wants the rockets to get robbed.

    I'll be damned if Morey is going to waste everything he has built up just to acquire Rashard freaking Lewis.

    It's hard to think of a player more anti-Morey than Rashard. Overpaid, one dimensional, and not really conducive to winning. Vince Carter would be just as pointless if we're going to give up Hill to get him.

    We'll either find a way to land a star or keep piling assets.

    This article does make you feel very good about the Ariza/Lee swap, though.

    That guy is an embarrassment to intelligent journalism (of which there isn't much left)

    Edit: There was a slight bit of hyperbolic humor intended in this post and it didn't come across...but the idea that we want Lewis under his current contract is ludicrous.
