    They could end up with Joel Embiid now, and they should jump on it.

  3. The Extra Pass: Three guys that deserve more playing time, plus Monday’s recaps

    Jan 28, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Milwaukee Bucks

    With the first half of the season in the books, let’s look at five players who deserve to get a little more burn the rest of the way. John Henson, F/C, Milwaukee Bucks Before we get to Henson, let’s travel in the way back machine to the 2009-10 season. If you’ll remember, Kurt Rambis was…

  4. Josh Smith on pace for worst 3-point-shooting season in NBA history, but only because he’s playing smarter

    Jan 24, 2014, 3:57 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons  v Indiana Pacers

    Josh Smith is on pace for the worst 3-point-shooting season in NBA history. That was the case recently made by Sean Corp of Detroit Bad Boys and backed by Kyle Wagner of Deadspin. There are varying potential cutoffs, but here’s how it stacks up: In NBA history, players have attempted at least 200 3-pointers in…

  5. Magic’s Nikola Vucevic has concussion, likely out a week or more

    Jan 7, 2014, 6:31 PM EDT

    Sacramento at Orlando

    During the third quarter of the Magic’s blowout loss to the Clippers Monday night, Nikola Vucevic went up to try and block a Blake Griffin shot, ended up getting flipped and took a hard fall where he landed on his side and his head hit the floor. Vucevic suffered a concussion and the Orlando big…

  6. Magic’s Nicholson ejected for late cheap shot on Cavs’ Varejao (VIDEO)

    Dec 14, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Varejao

    Near the very end of the Cavaliers’ win over the Magic on Friday, Orlando’s Andrew Nicholson was called for a flagrant two foul that resulted in an automatic ejection for shoving Anderson Varejao to the floor. Apparently Nicholson didn’t appreciate the fact that Varejao scored the meaningless basket with the Cavs up six and just…

  7. The Extra Pass: Chemistry clicking in Denver as Nuggets beat Nets to win seventh straight, and Tuesday’s recaps

    NEW YORK — If it was a fight, they would have stopped it. To say the Nuggets beat the Nets on Tuesday to earn their seventh straight win wouldn’t at all be an accurate description of how Denver came out and destroyed Brooklyn in the third quarter, and then continued the assault against a depleted and…

  8. The Extra Pass: 10 teams, 10 observations, plus Tuesday recaps

    Nov 6, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Chuck Hayes, Paul Millsap

    Let’s zip around the league with ten observations for ten teams: Atlanta: I’m digging the former Jazz men. Paul Millsap is already getting along famously with Al Horford, but the smart movement off the ball by flex-bred wingmen Kyle Korver and DeMarre Carroll is keeping defenses off guard. This is a really unselfish offense already,…

  9. Orlando forward Tobias Harris out indefinitely with ankle sprain

    Nov 4, 2013, 12:42 PM EDT

    Tobias Harris

    In what is going to be a tough season in Orlando, Tobias Harris was one of the reasons to tune in — the young forward had a sparkling second half of the season ( 17.3 points and 8.5 rebounds per game after being traded from the Bucks to the Magic) and we wanted to see what he…

  10. Paul George leads Pacers to opening night win over Magic

    Oct 29, 2013, 9:53 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Indiana Pacers

    The Pacers are expected to contend for the Eastern Conference crown, while the Magic are rebuilding and have no goals beyond player development for the upcoming season. The end result of the first game of the year reflected those expectations, as Indiana pulled away in the fourth quarter to beat Orlando by a final of…

  11. Future trade bait Glen Davis progressing from foot injury

    Oct 22, 2013, 3:40 PM EDT

    Tyler Hansbrough, Glen Davis

    When this season ends Glen Davis is going to be playing for someone other than Orlando. There are no sure things in the NBA, I could be wrong, but if I were Davis I would keep a “go bag” packed and ready near the front door. Why? Orlando is rebuilding and Davis is a veteran…

  12. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: The Orlando Magic

    Oct 4, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Tobias Harris

    Last season: It was a season of transition. The Magic started out near .500 (12-13) but when Glen Davis got injured things fell apart. The Magic won 8 games the rest of the year and by the trade deadline they had fully embraced the rebuild, meaning J.J. Redick was the first out the door in…

  13. Magic GM says team cautious with Glen Davis’ return, could miss start of camp

    Sep 24, 2013, 2:13 PM EDT

    Glen Davis

    It was thought a month ago that Glen Davis would be back for the start of Orlando’s training camp after missing most of last season following foot surgery. Maybe not. Orlando GM Rob Hennigan did a Q&A with Orlando’s own site and sounded very cautious about the return of Davis. “He’s progressing on schedule and…

  14. Magic to baby Glen Davis as he returns from foot injury

    Sep 3, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Tyler Hansbrough, Glen Davis

    The Orlando Magic are not tanking. Don’t suggest that they are. However, if it took a little longer than scheduled for veteran forward “Big Baby” Glen Davis to get back on the court following his second foot surgery, is that such a bad thing? The Magic have said they plan to baby… er, be cautious…

  15. FIBA Americas schedule features Canada vs. Brazil on Sunday

    Sep 1, 2013, 11:30 AM EDT

    Axier Sucre, Diego Bareiro

    The FIBA Americas tournament enters Day 3 on Sunday after a solid first two days of action. Sunday’s games don’t feature the marquee matchups that littered Friday and Saturday, but the first contest of the day should be worth watching. Canada and Brazil are both in the conversation for the Final Four next weekend, a…

  16. FIBA Americas results and recap, featuring Jack Michael Martinez vs. Luis Scola

    Sep 1, 2013, 9:00 AM EDT

    Argentina's LuisScola goes for a basket against Martinez of Dominican Republic during their FIBA Americas Championship basketball game in Caracas

    The 2013 FIBA Americas tournament finished its second day of action on Saturday night. The games that were supposed to be the best ended up being the most lopsided but, on the bright side, even those games were relatively fun to watch for a weekend in August. Saturday’s featured game, according to your’s truly, took…

    Aug 31, 2013, 10:00 AM EDT

    Puerto Rico's Jose Barea goes for a basket against Brazil during their FIBA Americas Championship basketball game in Caracas

    Friday’s action was fine at the FIBA Americas tournament down in Venezuala, but Saturday’s games should offer a bit more intrigue. Four of the top five teams will be in action in the second day of round-robin play, featuring an interesting matchup of Canada against Puerto Rico. Both teams take 1-0 records into the first…

    Puerto Rico's Balkman goes for a basket against Brazil's Giovannoni during their FIBA Americas Championship basketball game in Caracas

    The 2013 FIBA Americas tournament tipped off on Friday in Caracas, Venezuela, with teams from North, South and Central America attempting to move one step closer to playing in the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. It’s still a bit early to be talking about that since the tournament won’t end until September 11, but…

    Team USA had a mini-camp workout for some younger players this summer, but that was basically it for the senior men’s team. USA Basketball largely gets to take the summer off and gear up for the World Championships in Spain next summer. But much of the rest of the world is going at it in…

  20. Five players who have stood out at the Orlando Summer League

    Jul 9, 2013, 2:17 PM EDT

    Kelly Olynyk

    Be careful about reading too much into success at NBA Summer League — the old adage is Summer League doesn’t tell you who can play in the NBA, only who cannot. Look at it this way, last year’s Las Vegas Summer League co-MVPs were Damian Lillard and Josh Selby. A future Rookie of the Year…

  21. Report: Eric Bledsoe for Arron Afflalo trade talks heating up

    Jun 25, 2013, 9:05 PM EDT

    Eric Bledsoe, Jerryd Bayless

    Of all the multitude of trade rumors around Eric Bledsoe, one stood out as making the most sense — Bledsoe to the Magic for Arron Afflalo. That trade talk appears to be picking up steam as we head toward the draft, according to a tag team report at ESPN. The Orlando Magic and Los Angeles…

  22. Damian Lillard, Anthony Davis headline NBA All-Rookie Team

    May 14, 2013, 2:39 PM EDT

    APTOPIX Rookie of Year Basketball

    It was an interesting year for rookies. Damian Lillard stood out as the point guard Portland needed, but he had the advantage of talent around him that other promising players (Anthony Davis, Andre Drummond) did not. Then there were good young players like Jonas Valanciunas flying under the radar in Toronto. So picking the NBA…

  23. Magic’s Nicholson to replace Drummond in Rising Stars game

    Feb 10, 2013, 8:01 PM EDT

    Andrew Nicholson, Mirza Teletovic

    It was sad to see Detroit’s Andre Drummond go down for a month with a bad back, he was one of two guys who had a chance to chasing down Damian Lillard for Rookie of the Year (Anthony Davis is the other). Drummond was also supposed to be part of the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge…

  24. Magics’ Glen Davis breaks foot, out for rest of season

    Jan 31, 2013, 3:53 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Brooklyn Nets

    Already in a rebuilding year where they have lost seven straight and 17 of their last 19 games, what else could go wrong for the Orlando Magic? How about losing Glen Davis for the season to a broken foot? That happened Wednesday night against the Knicks. Big Baby broke his left foot the team made…

  25. Irving, Lillard lead selections for All-Star Rising Stars (rookie/sophomore game)

    Jan 30, 2013, 4:17 PM EDT

    BBVA Rising Stars Challenge

    Friday night of All-Star weekend is when the NBA likes to show off it’s future All-Stars. Or, at least the guys who seem like they are going to stick around the league for a while. It’s the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge — what the rest of us still call the rookie/sophomore game. Although for the…
