Orlando Magic Daily:
We are nearly at the end of July and, for the most part, the NBA's offseason is for all intent and purposes over. The biggest names have new or old homes and the NBA is preparing for its slowest month and a half of the year (especially without the Olympics).
There will not be actual basketball to write about until Eurobasket tips off in Slovenia on September 4. Nikola Vucevic will be leading Montenegro in that, so we will prep for that next month.
The Magic have a long way to go to get to a championship level. We knew that after the team finished with the league's worst record last year. Getting there in one summer was clearly not part of the plan as Orlando was still a bit cash-strapped and looking to improve and develop the young players on the roster.
The Draft was going to be a big part of the short-term rebuilding plan and the Magic took advantage of that in drafting Victor Oladipo and finding an intriguing prospect in Romero Osby in their second round pick....

The Orlando Magic has a problem on its hands with Glen Davis.
The one that they call ” Big Baby” is still tender after suffering a season-ending injury in January.

The post Glen Davis may not be available at the start of training camp appeared first on Players View.
The Magic have signed free agent guard Ronnie Price, giving them another veteran reserve in their backcourt.
Team officials announced the signing on Thursday. If Price serves in a point guard capacity, he will likely be the Magic's third option behind starter Jameer Nelson and possibly rookie Victor Oladipo, if he continues to successfully transition to the position in the NBA...
The Orlando Magic signed guard Ronnie Price, the team announced Thursday.
Price appeared in 39 games with the Portland Trail Blazers last season, averaging 2.7 points per game and 13.1 minutes per game.
"We're excited to welcome Ronnie and his family to the Magic organization," Magic GM Rob Hennigan said. "We believe Ronnie's toughness and competitive spirit...
Four summer league games did not settle whether Victor Oladipo will play point guard during his first regular season in the NBA.
But Oladipo likely showed enough promise to convince Orlando Magic officials to keep testing him at the new position during training camp and the preseason.
"I don't think we know really right now where it's headed" said James Borrego...

Orlando Magic forward Glen Davis underwent surgery earlier this month to replace a screw in his left foot, the same foot that required a procedure during the season after he broke it at the end of January. Following the recent procedure, the Magic are not sure when they can expect Davis to be back and available, as there’s a possibility that the big man won’t be ready for the...
The focus of management in building a roster is all about the long term right now. The Magic are signing Jason Maxiell and Ronnie Price this summer to help nurture and lead a young group of players in the locker room as the team suffers through a very likely losing season. It is the reason why Jameer Nelson, Arron Afflalo and Glen Davis (despite whatever trade value they might have...
If this is not a sign of how slow things are with the Magic, I don't know what is. But here I am posting this (better than posting the latest J.J. Redick/TMZ story. . . honestly, I have made a news judgment not even to talk about it, this is probably the only mention you will see of it).
Back to what we are really talking about.

Ty Lawson has no problem repping for other NBA teams. Earlier this summer, the Nuggets’ point guard rocked a Toronto Raptors hat at a radio concert in Denver – now here he is showing up for Team USA minicamp over the weekend wearing an Orlando Magic hat.
Previously on That NBA Lottery Pick, we featured a couple of clips from the fine folks over at Relativity Sports.
This time around, the Relativity Sports folks decided to focus on the finer things in life with NBA players DeMarcus Cousins, Ricky Rubio, Iman Shumpert, and Al Harrington:
