Orlando Magic Daily:
Training camp opens up in a week. It will be the time to put away all thoughts of what was and begin to focus on what will be. Read that as code that I will be trying to clean out anything relevant in my notebook during the next week (don't think there is much left).
For some players, it will be merely a continuation of the workouts they have been doing all summer. For others, it will be the first time the Magic will see them on the Amway Center court in a structured setting. For fans, it could be the first time we have seen them since in any capacity since March or further back.
Glen Davis, Arron Afflalo and Jameer Nelson did not reach the finish line of the season. Davis broke his leg in January. Afflalo injured his quad in late March. Nelson hit the shelf a week later. Orlando let the veterans take their time returning toward the end of the season.
And unlike the young guys who are on Twitter all the time taking photos and sharing their adventures, the veterans wo...

The Orlando Magic do not have a timetable on the return of Glen Davis, who has been recovering from foot surgery.
"He’s progressing on schedule and he is progressing slowly," Rob Hennigan said. "And that’s by design. One thing that we want to make sure of is that when Glen does come back we don’t want him to re-aggravate that foot. So we’re being very cautious...

The Magic will open up training camp in one week!
Our long summer of waiting for basketball will finally end. In a few short weeks, the team will be playing its first preseason game and we will finally get to see Maurice Harkless, Tobias Harris, Nikola Vucevic, Arron Afflalo, Jameer Nelson, Victor Oladipo and company take the floor. It should...

Jacque Vaughn's rookie season as a coach was very tough to judge.
The Magic had a mish-mash roster cobbled together around the Dwight Howard trade and a lot of young players that nobody really knew about. This time last year, nobody had a clue that Nikola Vucevic would become a rebounding machine or who Maurice Harkless was. Let alone...
If you don’t know who Tobias Harris is, maybe you should. He’s a small forward/power forward for the Orlando Magic, and yes… they weren’t a exiciting team to watch, but Harris was exiciting to watch. Before we get into his stats, and his future, he has to get a good introduction first. The 21 year ...The post Who’s Tobias Harris? appeared first on The League News.

Predictably, the Magic have seen their popularity and notoriety as a franchise decrease with the team's departure of All Star Dwight Howard.
Orlando finished with the worst record in the league last year and are in Year Two of a long-term rebuild to overhaul the franchise after Howard's ugly departure. Another season with...
They're still going to be young. And they're still going to get beaten. A lot.
But the Orlando Magic, who will open training camp Tuesday, are far better off now than they were a year ago as a team with a first-year coach, a first-year general manager and a roster which was noteworthy only because of the absence of Dwight Howard.
No one is criticizing GM Rob Hennigan for...
