MAGIC RUMORS & GOSSIP

Lock ‘Em Up, Rob Hennigan

It was not that long ago when the Orlando Magic’s top priority was dealing away a disgruntled Dwight Howard, and the Magic fans’ top priority was winning the break up. When Magic General Manager Rob Hennigan signed, sealed and delivered Howard to the Los Angeles Lakers, Walt Disney’s neighbors were not so pleased. That was especially true because Magic fans never heard of the...

No searching for a center, it is Nikola Vucevic

In the years after Shaquille O’Neal left the Magic, the team searched for someone — anyone — who could play center. From Felton Spencer to Rony Seikaly to Isaac Austin to Andrew Declercq to Shawn Kemp to Patrick Ewing to Kelvin Cato. There was no consistency and no plan other than stop gaps (maybe Seikaly and Austin were “plans” that never came close to fruition). After...

Magic to mix youth, veterans In Year 3 of rebuild

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) Since their arrival, Orlando Magic general manager Rob Hennigan and coach Jacque Vaughn have avoided making too many predictions about their team.

But as they enter the third season of what Hennigan...

Victor Oladipo back on the court, but when will he return?

The Magic had an open practice Monday at Amway Center. The team went through a light practice as Jacque Vaughn and the team got the fans involved and put on a good show for the estimated 2,000 that appeared and filled the lower bowl. The question remained on the new face who was on the floor. Not quite a new face, but it has been a while since he had practiced with the team — or...

Magic Interviews After the Open Practice

The Orlando Magic revealed a few things during their open practice on Monday night. Victor Oladipo seems to be close to returning, but there’s no timetable. I wouldn’t rule him out in being ready for the regular season opener. Kyle O’Quinn has the green light to shoot 3-pointers as long as defense and the rest of his game doesn’t fall off. Here are some interviews following...

Three thoughts after Magic’s 95-84 loss to Sixers

The Magic suffered their second preseason loss in Allentown, Pa., 95-84 in a game that probably should have had the Sixers’ owner apologizing for bringing two NBA teams resting many of their “star” players. Of course, the Sixers even with Michael Carter-Williams and Nerlens Noel have made a mockery of NBA teams with their tanking schemes. Score Off. Rtg. eFG% O.Reb.% TO...
