I think that it's a lot simpler then most are making it out to be. Ryan Anderson is a win now player, Orlando is going into a rebuild mode that's going to last 3 or 4 years and Ryan would just help you win enough to push you out of the top 10 on draft day. Ayon is a young, low wage, developing guy, he will get better during the rebuild era and gain value but not help you win a lot of games.
I was ten years old win Orlando got a franchise, I've grown up a Magic fan and I want to win now but I also understand basketball and that's why I get the Ryan Anderson situation.
Make that layup Courtney Lee and things would be sooooo different!!!!!:)

@erivera7 Was he a part of the Joe Johnson deal?

Let me just add, the Lakers deal does sound better then the current Nets (assumed offer). Still, if the Nets can work something out to work in a third team to give the Magic some kind of cap relief or if they offer Brooks, Lopez and Marrow (keep Kris Humphries or give him and take Hedo) then that deal sounds good (if the money worked out cap wise).
Okay, I was cool with the Nets trade but they need to offer Brooks , Lopez and Marrow. The Magic could give J-Rich to completely go young. The Nets want to win now? I know they just got Jo Johnson but J-Rich coming off the bench would really help them win. The picks are low but the Magic will have pretty good picks for at least two of those years, I high 20's first rounder will move you up a few spots, assuming you can get a trade.
