Could Terrence Ross Make The Leap?

I, like many other NBA fans, cringed when the Orlando Magic signed Bismack Biyombo. Biyombo's not a horrible player; don't get me wrong. But the thought of a frontcourt trio consisting of Biyombo, Nikola Vucevic, and Serge Ibaka did very little for my excitement levels.  Thinking of poor Aaron Gordon, isolated on the perimeter with very little demonstrated shooting ability (and...

Magic, Blazers ready for sprint to finish

There was a refreshed feeling at Orlando Magic practice Tuesday. The All-Star Break had provided a nice dividing line, letting players get away and reset their batteries some for the final 24 games.

Should the Orlando Magic have traded for DeMarcus Cousins?

The Kings traded the superstar center to the Pelicans for pennies on the dollar. The Sacramento Kings surprised the NBA world Sunday night when they agreed to trade DeMarcus Cousins—a 26-year-old perennial All-Star averaging 27.8 points and 10.7 rebounds on 56.2 percent True Shooting—to the New Orleans Pelicans for, uh, not much.

2017 NBA trade deadline: Reggie Jackson trade to Magic unlikely, according to report

Orlando’s interest in the veteran point guard is real, but the Pistons may value him too highly to make a trade worthwhile.

Gordon looking for dunk title, and Jones may be in his way

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Aaron Gordon is not giving any hints on what he'll do for an All-Star dunk contest encore. He just hopes it's enough this time around. The runner-up in last year's All-Star dunk contest, Gordon is likely considered the favorite going into this year's edition that will be held on Saturday night. The Orlando Magic forward lost a dunk-off a year ago to Minnesota...

How the Magic Can Get Rebuilding Right This Time Around

There’s something to be said for what’s gone on in Orlando these past few years. They’ve picked in the top five three out of four years and have had two other lottery picks in that time. Yet they haven’t come away with a single player we can definitively call an NBA starter. That level of incompetence is incredibly rare. Most teams accidentally wind up with someone worthwhile...
