You just wish it didn’t occur on Darrel Armstrong ‘Legends Night’ and the final...

Orlando Magic will sign Dewayne Dedmon for the rest of the season

The Orlando Magic will sign rookie center Dewayne Dedmon for the remainder of this season after his second 10-day contract expired at 11:59 Sunday night. Dedmon gives the Magic another big man — a spot on the roster that thinned out when the team waived Solomon Jones on Jan. 4 and then bought out Glen Davis’ contract on Feb. 21. Dedmon’s signing is expected to be made official...

Inexperience leads to growing pains for Magic against Wizards

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Except for Arron Afflalo and Jameer Nelson, the Orlando Magic are heading down the stretch of this season primarily with a group of players who have spent three or fewer years in the NBA.

The Magic led 85-79 with 1:55 to go in regulation after two free throws by...

Orlando Magic fall in overtime to Wall, Wizards

Magic look to measure themselves out West

The Magic depart Monday for their final major road trip of the season -- a four-game, six-day trek that will have the Magic visiting Golden State, Utah, Phoenix and Los Angeles (Lakers).
