There is still work the Magic can do and still work the Magic must do in the final months of the season. Remember, Orlando is building for the future and trying to create a championship atmosphere, along with the foundation for a championship team. That is still a ways out, but Orlando is in constant asset evaluation mode and has to figure out which players figure to be part of that future.
With that in mind, the first thing to expect in the final 30-or-so games of the season is to see plenty of the young players. Injuries have already forced that plan into action. But Orlando is going to be constantly evaluating players like Maurice Harkless, Andrew Nicholson, Nikola Vucevic and Kyle O'Quinn. All four should b...

ORLANDO, Fla. J.J. Redick and Jameer Nelson have been down this road before.
So far, its a road that has never led them out of Orlando. In terms of continuous service with the Magic, they are the undisputed leaders on the current roster, as well as two of the few remaining ties to the 2009 Eastern Conference champions.
But with the Magics six-year playoff run coming to an end...

Jeff Van Guny feels that Dwight Howard’s weaknesses are more exposed as a Laker than they were as a Orlando Magic. He claims that if Howard knew then what he knows now, he would probably still be with the Orlando Magic. Do you agree?
Per Orlando Sentinel:
If Dwight Howard knew then what he knows now, he would probably still be with the Orlando Magic.
We are actually a little bit past the halfway point of the season, but the All-Star Break is as good a demarcating line as any to split the season into two halves.
The season so far has gone as expected to some degrees but is still a frustrating exercise with the team mired in a tough losing stretch -- two 10-game losing streaks and the current stretch of losing 24 out of the...

Season Series: Won 107-98 in Charlotte on Dec. 15; Lost 106-100 in Orlando on Jan. 18; Tonight in Orlando; March 27 in Charlotte
The Pacers, Bucks, Bulls and Wolves have been interested in J.J. Redick.

Orlando and Charlotte have every reason to kind of fold in the face of adversity. When they both saw it in Tuesday's game at Amway...

The Milwaukee Bucks and New York Knicks have put in their bids of Orlando shaprshooter J.J. Redick.
The Bucks are offering forward Luc Mbah a Moute and a first-round pick, according to CBS Sports' Ken Berger. But making a move for Redick is apparently contingent on first dealing Monta Ellis in a "bigger deal" (see Smith, Josh).
