You can't give up too much talent for a player like Dwight. This is still a game of stars... they define the game, not the role players. You can find role players anywhere, while there are only a handful of stars.
If it takes trading the whole team to get a player like Dwight, Wade or Lebron, nobody would think twice about it.
Dwight will be superstar soon but the Magic, unless they get great free agents, will not be in the lottery again and won't get very good players around Dwight. Monta is allstar type as maybe is Biedrins. Harrington is not the worst tweener out there and has actually improved some skills lately. These are three proven players this season so it is not just average players for a superstar like with Shaq to Miami trade. None trades the whole team for a superstr either. 3 or 4 players maybe but noone dismembers their team for just one player as it never would work
So... you're saying that if the Orlando Magic can't surround Dwight Howard with a good enough supporting cast, they'll trade him for dirt cheap?
Biedrins, Ellis, and Harrington are all fine players... but none of them will ever be more than 2nd fiddle in their career (including Monta). Meanwhile, Dwight Howard might just take the NBA over in a couple of seasons. If
the Warriors could swing they trade, they wouldn't think twice about it. Unfortunately, it's a Warrior fan pipe dream that'll never happen. The Magic are horribly underpaid (you CAN'T get equal value in return for big men like Duncan, Dwight Howard, Greg Oden, or Shaq).
