Even though Dwight Howard, Ryan Anderson, Jason Richardson, Earl Clark and Chris Duhon have been shipped out, the Magic are hardly finished in their attempts to make trades. They are open for business to any team that is interested in the likes of holdovers Hedo Turkoglu, Jameer Nelson, J.J. Redick, Big Baby Davis and Quentin Richardson. (And those players also might be looking to join a team that’s not competing for lottery prizes the next few seasons.) Orlando Sentinel

The tentacles of the proposed deal stretched across more than 10 players and three teams on Monday, with the Nets recruiting a fourth team to take on guard MarShon Brooks in exchange for an additional draft pick to send to Orlando. Nevertheless, multiple complexities need to be resolved to complete the deal, including the negotiation of contracts for four of the players in the proposed trade: Brook Lopez, Kris Humphries, Damion James and Shelden Williams. In the proposed deal, Howard, Jason Richardson and Earl Clark would be sent to Brooklyn, and the Magic would receive the Nets' Lopez, James, Williams and Armon Johnson, Cleveland's Luke Walton and three future first-round picks, sources said. Cleveland would receive Orlando's Quentin Richardson, Brooklyn's Sundiata Gaines, Humphries (on a one-year guaranteed deal), a first-round pick and $3 million from the Nets. Brooklyn also is in talks with the Los Angeles Clippers to exchange Brooks for an additional first-round pick to send to the Magic. If the Clippers decline to participate, other teams are in position to take on Brooks, sources said. Yahoo! Sports

Could the Orlando Magic have been hurting from the night before during their 108-86 beating by the Knicks on Wednesday? The previous night, sources spotted the Magic’s Glen “Big Baby” Davis and Jason Richardson partying until the early hours. They started out dining in the private wine room of Philippe New York. Then the pair joined Dwight Howard — who got a shout-out from the DJ on the loudspeaker, spies said — Chris Duhon and Quentin Richardson at Greenhouse during R&B singer Dawn Richard’s EP release party. The players were seen ordering bottles of Champagne and raged in the club until around 3 a.m. New York Post

James had glared at the Orlando bench after hitting a shot. Q-Rich slowed enough that James made contact, and then the 260-pound LeBron rammed his shoulder into Q as they walked down the court, and Q angrily responded. It really should have been a double-technical foul, but refs caught Q retaliating and T’d him up. “I don’t care if you’re The King or whatever,” Richardson laughed. “You put your pants on just like I do. “He still got 27 points, but you have to let him know that he has to fight for them. That it ain’t gonna be a walk in the park.” Orlando Sentinel

“The back has been good,” Richardson said. “I haven’t had any setbacks. I’ve been doing everything, the rehab the whole summer. Like I said, I’ve been working out with the guys, for the most part, with no setbacks. So everything’s been good.” Since July 1, when the NBA lockout went into effect, the Magic athletic-training staff has been prohibited from having any contract with their players, even Richardson and shooting guard J.J. Redick, who also had offseason surgery. That meant Richardson and Redick had to take full responsibility for their recoveries. Redick also has said he’s doing well after his late-May surgery to repair two muscle tears in his lower abdomen. Orlando Sentinel

Orlando Magic players Jameer Nelson, Quentin Richardson and Brandon Bass did something constructive Wednesday to help people who need assistance making ends meet. The trio and former Magic player Keyon Dooling spent part of the afternoon at Northwest Community Center in Orlando donating food and personal-care items to children and their families. The event was sponsored by the Pete and Jameer Nelson Foundation and The Gametyme Foundation. Richardson’s B.F.A.M. Foundation and Bass also contributed. Orlando Sentinel
