Next week I will do my yearly review of "What Went Right" and "What Went Wrong" for the Magic this year. That will be our more in depth review of the season that ended last night.
Until then, while the ink is still drying on the season, we are going to reflect and look at where we have gone this season and where we are going. There is a lot that is going to happen in the Magic Kingdom this offseason including key decisions about veterans, development of the young players on this year's roster and the drafting of a top-4 pick. A lot can and will happen.
The Magic filed out of Amway Center and had their exit interviews with Rob Hennigan and Jacque Vaughn today before meeting the media. There was plenty of uncertainty in those meetings for several players.
Let's keep the focus on this season first though before we get too far ahead of ourselves.
A lot happened this season more than just 20 wins and 62 losses. Â Colby Huggins of The Magic Wire ...

ORLANDO, Fla. As a team with a first-year head coach and a first-year general manager that finished the NBA season with five first-year players, the Orlando Magic were certainly expected to go through some growing pains.
And to be sure, the bulk of the past four months were painful. As one of their rookies, backup center Kyle OQuinn, put it succinctly, if not quite elegantly: Losing...
The first season of the Magic's rebuilding program is over. It featured a lot of young players getting lots of time to grow and develop in their first and second years all under (at least early on) the watchful eye of several veterans. Undoubtedly, having Jameer Nelson, Glen Davis and Arron Afflalo among others in that locker room helped Maurice Harkless, Andrew Nicholson, Â...
It will be hard not to look back on the Orlando Magic's 2012-13 campaign as being similar to an expansion season.
It certainly resembled one on paper.
From a roster filled with first- and second-year players, to far too many lopsided losses to count, and ironically the exact same 12-29 home record as in their inaugural season, the only thing that seemed missing in Year 1 of...
Former Miami Heat and Orlando Magic head coach, Stan Van Gundy took this season off as an NBA head coach after a turbulent 2011-12 season with the Magic and superstar center, Dwight Howard. Despite the season off and a few recent openings for head coaching jobsÂ around the association, a report claims that SVG is not interested in any of the available head coaching gigs.

MIAMI Hedo Turkoglu can sense the end is near.
The forward has played 7 of his 13 NBA seasons with the Orlando Magic. But he knows theres a good chance the team will part ways with him this offseason.
That wouldnt surprise me at all, Turkoglu said in an interview with FOX Sports Florida before the Magics season finale Wednesday in Miami. Its just the situation sometimes youre...
If the season's goal was to collect the most ping pong balls in the NBA Draft Lottery -- while incidentally seeing plenty of growth in the young players amassed in the various trades in the remaking of this roster.
Sorry if I do not seem overly excited about this prospect. It is not the fact that this is considered a weak draft at the top or that...
Buried in an Orlando Magic notebook article from The Orlando Sentinelâ€™s Brian Schmitz, there was a little nugget of information that appears to be news with one hot name around the Cavs coaching rumors.
Per Schmitz: â€śThe Detroit Pistons, Cleveland Cavs and Philadelphia 76ers are looking for coaches â€” three more possibilities for former Magic coach Stan Van Gundy. Iâ€™m told...
