Giricek Goes From Grizzlies to Orlando in four-player deal

Giricek's 29 points in his NBA debut against Dallas on October 30 was the fifth-highest NBA scoring debut in history.

The trade came in advance of Thursday's 3 p.m.(et) NBA trading deadline. Miller, the 2000-01 NBA Rookie of the Year, was traded on his 23rd birthday. He was the second-leading scorer on the Magic this season averaging 16.4 points to go along with 5.8 rebounds and 2.8 assists.

During the 2000-01 campaign, Miller set franchise records for most three-point field goals made (148) and most three-point field goals attempted (364) in one season by a rookie.

The 23-year-old Humphrey, a rookie from Notre Dame, was averaging just 1.8 points per game for the Magic.

Gooden, in his rookie season out of Kansas, comes to Orlando after averaging 12.1 points and 5.8 rebounds per game with Memphis. The fourth overall selection in last year's draft, he has started 29 of the 51 games he's played in this season.

Giricek, a 25-year-old shooting guard from Croatia and also in his rookie season, has started in 35 of the 49 games he's played in this season. Giricek left Memphis averaging 11.2 points per contest. His 29 points in his NBA debut against Dallas on October 30 was the fifth-highest NBA scoring debut in history.
