Report: Magic to sign Ronnie Price

Amar'e Stoudemire, Ronnie Price

Much like why the tanking Jazz signed John Lucas III, the tanking Magic will sign another guard with a reputation for being a good locker room presence.

Chris Haynes of CSN Northwest:

Ronnie Price has reached an agreement with the Orlando Magic, a league source informed CSNNW.com.

Alex Kennedy of Hoops World:

Lucas, a 5-foot-11 point guard who averaged 5.3 points and 1.7 assists per game for the Raptors last season, Price, a 6-foot-2 combo guard who averaged 2.9 points and 1.9 assists per game for the Trail Blazers last season, won’t win the Jazz Magic any games and therefore won’t hurt their lottery odds. So, great signing right off the bat.Developing Trey Burke Victor Oladipo is still Utah’s Orlando top priority at point guard, but the growth of Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter Nicola Vucevic and Tobias Harris is also important. Lucas Price, a capable NBA point guard, will allow Favors and Kanter Vucevic and Harris minutes in a viable offense while Burke is Oladipo and Jameer Nelson are on the bench. Without a player like Lucas Price, the Jazz’s Magic’s offense could have turned haphazard while Burke Oladipo and Nelson rests, those minutes turning worthless in terms of Favors’ and Kanter’s Vucevic’s and Harris’ development.Tanking is about losing a lot of games, but the teams that tank best also develop their young players in the process. Lucas Price should help Utah Orlando do the latter without preventing the former.

    One of the oddest attempts at humor I’ve seen in a while. Perhaps it should be left to the professionals.

    Good for Ronnie. Lived across the hall from him for a couple years while he was at UVSC. Really good guy. Will always give 110% and a decent player coming off the bench.
