Today’s episode of TrueHoop TV covered the topic of worst deals in the NBA this year. The Orlando Magic‘s acquisition of Gilbert Arenas gets mentioned.
I wouldn't call it a mistake. We needed a solid guy who could play PG/SG. I remember before the trade he was playing well, and we even lost a game against them early in the season and I think he scored like around 30 points. The bad thing is after the trade, his performance started to drop. Now he looks below average. But then again, had we kept Lewis, we'd probably be sitting right now with him inactive because of injury. I wish Smith looked at other options though. I mean we could've at least tried for Deron Williams. The problem was Otis didn't know that Williams was on the trading block.
