Exclamation Orlando Magic Interested In Chris Webber And P.J. Brown

http://www.orlandosentinel.com/sport...,1889348.story

Although he has no salary-cap room remaining -- only the veteran's minimum of $1.2 million to offer -- Magic General Manager Otis Smith still has his sights set high as he continues working to fill the last two spots on the roster for next season.

Smith said Friday that he has been talking with free-agent veterans Chris Webber and P.J. Brown, among others. Webber finished last season in Detroit, but the Pistons may not re-sign him. Brown played last season in Chicago, but the Bulls are not interested in re-signing him. He said he will consider retirement but may play another year.

Although the Magic signed free-agent forward Rashard Lewis to a multi-year contract, they still are trying to plug the hold left by the departure of Darko Milicic, who signed in Memphis.

"We're just talking about insurance, someone reliable who can give us 10-12 minutes a night," Smith said. "We're going to be patient."

The Magic are expected soon to sign former second-round pick Marcin Gortat, a center/forward, but they also are looking for someone with more experience.

Smith also said Friday that he will continue to talk with Jameer Nelson's agent about a possible contract extension, but there is nothing close and he doesn't expect anything before October.

C-Webb is better fit to the Magics than PJ Brown

Please give one reason why C-Webb would be interested in the Magic?

There is none. He's aging and could re-sign with a team that had a chance of winning a championship. Orlando has no chance at all. There's absolutely no reason he should go there, at all, under any circumstances. Not even for money, because he shouldn't care about that. Webber needs a ring, and by the way Orlando is going, they won't be competing for one for at least 3 or 4 years.

These are the types of players best suited for championship-caliber teams. Role players that can use their experience and expertise. Not sure why they would ever be interested in playing for what amounts to an average at best franchise

Webber can be the replacement for Darko Milicic... if Darko doesn't break out next season he'll perform only till Webber's current level of play... C-Webb would fit great...

Last year, Webber stated that Orlando was one of his choices before he signed with Detroit, in order to play with Dwight Howard. I see no reason why he wouldn't sign this season if Orlando was one of his choices last season.

When did he ever say that? Lets get a link. On his TNT interview he never mentioned anything about Orlando.

Although he won't go there, C-Webb is the only chance for orlando to clean up their offseason IMO. They desperately need another good player.

I don't think creating a time machine and bringing back 28 year old MJ would clean up giving Rashard a Max contract.

BAHAHAHAHA! You know what? You are right. I stand corrected. Rashard + max contract = one of worst contracts in history.

It was in that exact interview on TNT that he said that. Orlando was the last team he mentioned on his list.
