Magic S/T with Sonics for Rashard Lewis official

Well, Rashard Lewis got his max deal from the Magic via S/T with the Sonics. He's now making 110 mil/6 years. This move probably makes the Magic more relevant now in the Leastern Conference. However, it got me thinking, is Lewis really that much better than J Rich was? He had his career scoring avg. last year with 22.8/game. For someone being almost 7 feet tall he doesn't rebound well at all. Just seems like he was grossly overpaid to me but that's the Magics problem now. He should compliment Dwight well though since they really needed an outside scoring presence. Now if Jameer Nelson would ever develop they'd have a real shot at taking the East. The Sonics got a conditional 2nd round pick and a 9 million dollar trade exception.

Do you guys think the Magic have a legit shot now to come out of the East?
