Romero Osby trying to impress Magic with consistent effort

ORLANDO, Fla. Romero Osby doesnt have to look far this week at the Orlando Pro Summer League to see that players chosen in the middle to later portions of the second round of the NBA draft can stick around months later when the regular season begins. Two of his Orlando Magic teammates, Kyle OQuinn and Doron Lamb, are proof of that. So are Kim English and Khris Middleton of the...

Dazzling in ‘The City Beautiful,’ expect Magic guard Victor Oladipo to win the 2014 NBA Rookie of the Year Award

Rebounding from a poor performance on Monday, Orlando Magic guard Victor Oladipo flourished in a summer-league game yesterday. Taken second overall out of Indiana by Orlando last month, the 21-year-old Oladipo scored 22 points on 4-of-7 attempts from the floor. An aerial artist famed for diligence and preparation, the 6-foot-5, 215 pound Oladipo has long been criticized for lacking...

The Orlando Magic and Hedo Turkoglu are reportedly working on a contract buyout that will make the 34 year old veteran, who has 1 year remaining worth $12 million- $6 million guaranteed,  a free agent.

Stan Van Gundy: It's possible I may never coach again

Stan Van Gundy has an NBA career winning percentage of .641. Thats better than what was put up by Pat Riley, Jerry Sloan, Don Nelson, Larry Brown, Lenny Wilkens, Chuck Daly and several other Hall of Fame coaches.He might not have to worry about ever falling behind any of those guys.Van Gundy, fired in May 2012 as coach of the Orlando Magic, sat out last year and in May told an Orlando...

Glen Davis has surgery on injured foot

Glen Davis had surgery on his injured left foot to replace a screw Monday in North Carolina, the Magic announced. Davis injured  his foot in January against the Knicks in New York and was lost for the rest of the season. Since he had been able to resume working out he had pledged to lose weight and get back into shape -- even going so far as to go on a cleanse diet. It appeared...

Thoughts from Orlando Summer League Day 2

Crossover Chronicles' Philip Rossman-Reich will be at the Southwest Airlines Orlando Pro Summer League all week. He will provide his thoughts on the day's action in this running post throughout the day. Oklahoma City Thunder 79, Orlando Magic 78 Jeremy Lamb had the ball in his hands in the final moment and pulled off a quick crossover to freeze Maurice Harkless...

Jeremy Lamb, Thunder cross up Magic defense

Jeremy Lamb was not having a great shooting day for the Thunder. Confidence though is all about taking the next shot. And Lamb is not short on that. Even late in a game where his team was trailing for much of it -- in Summer League, no less -- and needed timely shooting to get there. The Thunder found their offense and Lamb found his shot in the end. Lamb blew by Victor Oladipo...

Talking Summer League on David Baumann Show

Greetings from Amway Center for Day 3 of the Southwest Airlines Orlando Pro Summer League. I will ahve more from Summer League throughout the day (and in the coming weeks as I go through all the interviews and notes I have). For now though, as we near the midway point of the festivities, I took some stock of what we have seen from the Magic and from the Summer League in general...

The NBA's free agent moratorium ended late July 9 with the NBA announcing the salary cap set at $58.679 million and the luxury tax threshold was set at $71.748 million. This announcement means NBA teams can officially begin signing players to contracts and introduce their free agents. For the Magic this means the team understands what its salary position is entering the next...

Oklahoma City’s Kyle Kuric epically misses uncontested end-of-game lay-up against Magic

I have a sinking suspicion that Oklahoma City’s Kyle Kuric would like this end-of-game lay-up back against the Orlando Magic at the Orlando Summer League. As the Thunder lead by one with less than 7 seconds to play, Thunder guard Jeremy Lamb took the ball from Andrew Nicholson and threw it ahead to Kuric for the uncontested lay-up. That’s when Kuric blew his open lay-up and gave...
