Magic Trade Ariza To Lakers

The Orlando Magic have been searching for a big man to replace the injured Tony Battie and have found their man.

On Tuesday, the Orlando traded forward Trevor Ariza to the Los Angeles Lakers for forward Brian Cook and guard Maurice Evans.

To make room on the roster, the Magic released forward Bo Outlaw.

The Magic used their $2.6 million injury exemption, from the Tony Battie injury, to make the deal work.
