Andrew Nicholson takes step backward in second year with Magic

Andrew Nicholson began his second year with the Orlando Magic scoring 18 points in the first half of their opener at Indiana. He had nowhere to go from there but down. Still, the inability of their first-round draft pick from 2012 to rarely play more than 15 minutes a game for almost a four-month stretch was one of the most disappointing aspects to the Magic's season. Although...

Andrew Nicholson sees ways to improve from rookie season

ORLANDO, Fla. Andrew Nicholson is far from the first player in NBA history to have experienced defeat more often as a rookie than he did during four years in college.

Andrew Nicholson wraps up rookie year by speaking at Canadian sports leadership conference

The Magic made Andrew Nicholson the 19th pick in the NBA Draft nearly a year ago. It seems like Nicholson has been playing longer, since his refined post game made him an immediate impact player for the Magic. Moreso than any of the other rookies on the Magic's roster. He still has a lot to improve on -- specifically on the defensive end. But Nicholson's post game...
