Orlando Magic Should Trade For Goran Dragic

The Magic are 16-20, just 1.5 games behind the Bulls for eight place in the Eastern Conference standings and the time is now for them to make some moves and compete with the top teams in the league.

Orlando has a struggling offense that averages just 99.4 points per game (24th in the NBA), so they should add another scorer and Goran Dragic can help them significantly because he can distribute the ball and score consistently.

The Heat aren't desperate get rid of Dragic, but they're just 10-25 at the time of this writing and they might consider trading their star point guard if they find a decent match. The Magic are supposedly trying to trade Nikola Vucevic and Elfrid Payton and Rudy Gay, Monta Ellis, Brandon Knight and Lou Williams have been linked to Orlando.

Gay will be a free agent next summer, Ellis is having a down year, averaging just 9.0 points per game on 43.2 percent shooting and he no longer seems to be the elite scorer he once was, Knight is very talented but he is struggling this season and the Lakers will probably ask too much for Williams, so trying to get Goran Dragic is the safest move.

Dragic is averaging 18.8 points and 6.7 assists, shooting 40.4 percent from three-point range, solid numbers that would instantly improve Orlando's offense, just like a pay per head service can help you grow your business.

The Magic can reach the playoffs for the first time since 2012 but pay per head customers know that they have to be aggressive before the trade deadline and adding Dragic is the right move right now as he can also provide veteran leadership in the locker room.
