Orlando Magic wave wand and a new roster appears....

Talk about remaking yourself on the fly. In two fairly significant moves, the Orlando Magic have changed four names on their roster. Heck, a couple of them are pretty significant.

The first move, a six-player deal with the Phoenix Suns. In that deal, the Magic sent Vince Carter, Marcin Gortat and Mickael Pietrus along with a 1st round pick to Phoenix. In return, the Magic got the return of Hedo Turkoglu, Jason Richardson and Earl Clark.

The other deal....a bigger one. Rashard Lewis goes to Washington. In return, the Magic get Agent Zero himself, Gilbert Arenas.

More from the Orlando Sentinel RIGHT HERE

An interesting day for the struggling Magic. They address some weaknesses and pick up a huge question mark in Mr. Arenas. It doesn't cost them any extra in salary though, it does cost a 1st round pick.

We like the moves and think it makes them a deeper, more physical team...although Gortat will be missed in that department. We'll see if it's enough to get them past the Celtics and ESPN's favorite team, the Miami Heat.
