Trade idea: Orlando Magic trade Gary Harris to Dallas Mavericks for Josh Green and Richaun Holmes

“Paolo Banchero and Franz Wagner are plenty good right now, but they might be great in a few more years,” Buckley wrote in his latest NBA trade column. “If that’s when current rookies Anthony Black and Jett Howard are authoring their own leap years, the Magic might be on the verge of something special. That time arguably should be the Magic’s focus, and if it is, they should see plenty of merit in flipping Harris for Green (and Holmes, to make the money work). Harris is the better player right now, but Green has a higher ceiling on both ends of the floor.”
