Orlando Has Had Talks With Portland & Charlotte

Per Alex Kennedy of Hoops World, the Magic have talked to both the Portland Trail Blazers and Charlotte Bobcat about Jameer Nelson:

Also, the Orlando Magic continue to shop Jameer Nelson. On Wednesday afternoon, Nelson’s name was included in a trade rumor that would have sent him to the Portland Trail Blazers in exchange for Andre Miller and the #29 pick. The Magic and Blazers continue to talk, but keep an eye on the Charlotte Bobcats. After moving Shaun Livingston in their three-team deal with the Sacramento Kings and Milwaukee Bucks, they have had talks with Orlando centered around Nelson. It’s unclear who the Magic are targeting, but there is a growing belief that they want to move Nelson sooner rather than later.

We’ve heard a lot about Nelson being moved lately. With the investment the Magic have in Gilbert Arenas and Dwight Howard’s recent comments about Arenas, a Nelson trade keeps looking more and more realistic.
