That ought to be painful to watch.
Iggy for Bynum? Where do I sign? Sucks that it's reported by Chris Broussard's dumbass or else it would be more believable.
Edit - Looks like it was reported first by Woj. Makes me feel a hell of a lot better.

The thing that makes it so unbelievable to me is that Pau and Afflalo is not a good deal for the Magic imo. But perhaps they really like Afflalo and think he can be a 20+ ppg scorer. I think he can as well. He's a very efficient scorer. Hell of a defender as well. The more I think about it, it's not that bad a trade. Certainly better than the crap NJ was peddling.
Looks like that's only the base of the trade. Apparently the Magic would receive Vucevic among other assets like draft picks as well. Vucevic could turn into a decent player. Longest player in the draft a couple years ago and has some skill offensively. Should be a good rebounder as well.

Well, the Howard trade is official.
In terms of the Sixers, they gave up Iggy, Vucevic, Harkless, and a protected future first round pick. They got back Bynum and Jason Richardson.
