When it comes to the Magic and the salary cap, there are not a whole lot of worries. Gilbert Arenas' amnestied deal has kept the team above the payroll floor and the team is going to be shedding cap room this year to have some money to spend in 2014 and 2015.
That is all in the future.
The question that needs some answering immediately is what kind of value the Magic are getting for their buck on the current roster. Who is living up to their contract and who is not? That question is important for Rob Hennigan to answer because other teams will be asking him that question and coming up with their own answers as the team continues to look for ways to improve itself.
Present value is a very important question for the Magic, even at this beginning stage of the team's rebuild. There is a bit of a buy-low, sell-high mentality for sure. And right now the Magic have bought several young players at bargain prices. Not to mention the fact that r...

Horace Grant's spat with Doc Rivers during the 2002 season likely is No. 3 overall in Magic coach-player spats. There have been a few nasty ones and this one slips under the radar because Grant was not the player he once was and the Magic were not really going anywhere. I mean, Patrick Ewing was on the Magic that year.
The Magic will bring second-round pick Romero Osby to training camp along with free agents Solomon Jones Michael Eric Manny Harris and Kris Joseph according to a source close to the team.
The Magic are working on coming to terms with Osby the former Oklahoma forward whom the club selected 51st in the second round.
Jones a 6-foot-10 center-forward who grew up in Eustis and attended...

We are less than two weeks from the beginning of training camp and a few of you on Twitter have asked me who else the Magic might invite.
That question is a little bit difficult to answer as it feels like the Magic roster is pretty complete. As things stand now, Orlando has 15 players on the roster. Of course, that includes yet-to-be-signed...
The Orlando Magic are bringing Solomon Jones, Michael Eric, Manny Harris and Kris Joseph into training camp.
Jones spent time with the New York Knicks last season, while Eric played in the NBA D-League.
Both Harris and Joseph have logged NBA game action.
Barring any unforeseen negotiation issues, Romero Osby will be in Magic training camp and likely an official member of the Orlando Magic very soon.
Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel reports the Magic intend to invite their second round pick to training camp, thus using his draft rights. While the final terms of a contract are still being negotiated...
The always colorful Gilbert Arenas is looking to make a return to the association. Arenas took last year off after playing just 17 games with Memphis during the 2011-2012 campaign.
Arenas apparently has been looking great in his individual workouts and some team in L.A. might invite “agent zero” to camp, according to Alex Kennedy of HOOPSWORLD.
I'm hearing that Gilbert Arenas...
Leave it to the Los Angeles Clippers to bust out a belt sander when a nail file would suffice.
Despite coming off their most successful season in five years, the Clippers would have been in a bit of a pickle last season if they had not been able to scoop up Jamal Crawford for the mid-level exception. Even with Crawford on the roster, the Clips were so stretched at the off-guard spot...
