The Magic expected this. Magic COO Alex Martins said last year that he and the organization expected this change and...

Zach Lowe picks Victor Oladipo as ROY

“Oladipo is a bulldog with long arms, and he has predictably fared better on defense. Real plus/minus paints him as a positive on that end, he can check multiple positions, and he has generated steals without gambling irresponsibly. The Magic have allowed six fewer points per 100 possessions when Oladipo plays. Those numbers are noisy, but it’s tough to find much evidence Oladipo...

Heading toward the end, Nets dispose of Magic

The light is at the end of the tunnel.
