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.

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...
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:
