Orlando 10 Years Ago Chose to Retain Their Magic

Louisville Magic. St. Louis Magic. Kansas City Magic. Oklahoma City Magic (sorry, Seattle). A decade ago, Orlando could have opened the door for its city to allow its only major sports franchise – at the time – to seek a new home and migrate to a new host base. Although the Orlando Arena was still fairly young, having been built in 1989, it was quickly considered out-dated...

Orlando Magic lay foundation in first days of training camp

The Orlando Magic are beginning training camp with the learning of a new offense and defense. These first days are not action packed, but still important.

Orlando’s Depth is Remarkably Relaxing

The Orlando Magic have already had to begin Frank Vogel’s first training camp as head coach without Aaron Gordon (rolled ankle) and Elfrid Payton (strained hip flexor) being able to fully participate. This is a very familiar situation to last year during Scott Skiles‘ reign. AG was still recovering from that broken jaw and was only able to partake in non-contract drills (just...

Magic focus on playoff run with overhauled roster, new coach

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) It's no longer about rebuilding or improving for the Orlando Magic. The expectations around the franchise are all about not just making the playoffs, but also putting together a run once they get there. Those are rather lofty goals for a franchise that hasn't made the playoffs since 2012 when Dwight Howard was the focal point. But no one within the franchise...

New season brings clean slate for Mario Hezonja

Mario Hezonja was given little chance to succeed last year, but with a new coaching staff, the Magic may finally see his potential. Entering the 2015 NBA draft, the Orlando Magic needed scoring – and more specifically shooting. Evan Fournier, the team's only bona fide shooter, was yet to prove himself with a breakout year. With the fifth pick, Orlando again found themselves just...

Should Elfrid Payton still be the Magic’s point guard of the future?

The Magic have shed young talents like Tobias Harris and Victor Oladipo, but Elfrid Payton remains a central part of Orlando’s future plans. Should he be? Obviously the titular question of this article isn’t posed to Orlando Magic general manager Rob Hennigan; we already know what his answer is. As one of my readers eloquently noted last week, Hennigan has a "bizarre fixation...

Why Evan Fournier Will Need To Have The Season Of His Career

The Orlando Magic were one of the most active teams in the NBA this offseason as they continue to seek their first playoff berth since trading Dwight Howard. With all of their big moves, one that slipped under the radar was re-signing Evan Fournier. With the trade of Victor Oladipo, and committing $85 million to Fournier, the Magic clearly believe that he can be a consistent scoring...

QUIZ: Name every first-round draft pick in the history of the Orlando Magic

Did Orlando Have A Magical Offseason?

The NBA offseason couldn’t have been more confusing. Kevin Durant left Oklahoma City, the longtime face of Miami left for the Windy City, and Timofey Mozgov was the first player signed on July 1. A surplus of cap room convinced nearly every team in the league they had a chance to compete with a few acquisitions, especially in the Eastern Conference. Yet, the Orlando Magic had...
