Today's Francis Rumor

Courtesy of ESPN. I expect Francis trade rumors will become a daily excercise now that the Magic have suffered their backslide.

ESPN.com - NBA - NBA Rumor Central: Francis Heading to Denver?: "Francis Heading to Denver?
Feb 5 - Steve Francis is on the verge of being sent from Orlando to Denver, reports the New York Post.

According to the newspaper, the Nuggets would give up Nene and Earl Watson, who would either wind up in New York or Seattle. The Knicks would have to give up one of their young players, while the Sonics would part with Reggie Evans, Ronald Murray and Vitaly Potapenko.

A source tells the newspaper that 'something's either going to get done or it'll be dead within the next 48 hours.'

The New York Post also reports talks are ongoing between New York and Portland, which would send Theo Ratliff and Ruben Patterson to the Knicks for Penny Hardaway."

    Francis's trade would mark the end of Magic's run for the playoffs, this season. Should that happen, I would like to see drastic fall of the team so that the shortcomings of the coach and the front office would be exposed. I, personally, don't think that Francis would be traded.

    I just heard about this. Someone in a yahoo sports post said it involved Andre Miller from Denver though. I dunno, this could be another one of those Magic blunders we've come to expect. I agree matt, maybe this will expose BSHill and and the so-called execs' incompetence.

    Sounds interesting, but a trade that involves multiple teams could easily dissolve into nothing. The Magic supposedly told Steve during his suspension that as long as he wants to be here, they won't trade him. With his very good all-around play and better attitude since the suspension, I think that Francis does want to be here. I hope these rumors just go away.
