Orlando Magic

  1. Report: Magic to sign Ronnie Price

    Jul 16, 2013, 11:36 PM EDT

    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: Ronnie Price's agreement…

  2. Al Harrington, Hedo Turkoglu don’t expect to remain Magic much longer

    Jul 13, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Al Harrington, Greivis Vasquez

    We already knew the Magic and Hedo Turkoglu were negotiating a buyout, but Al Harrington could be headed out of Orlando, too. Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: Harrington and Turkoglu don’t expect the Magic to keep them. Like Turkoglu, Harrington also has a partially guaranteed salary for 2013-14 ($7,148,600, half guaranteed). Unlike Turkoglu, whose…

  3. Magic, Hedo Turkoglu discussing buyout

    Jul 9, 2013, 6:54 PM EDT

    Hedo Turkoglu

    In some ways, Hedo Turkoglu became the face of the Orlando Magic during the 2009 NBA Finals. Dwight Howard was unquestionably Orlando’s top player, but with point guard Jameer Nelson battling injury, Turkoglu became the Magic’s primary ball-handler and leading scorer. All eyes were on him. After the series, a 4-1 loss to the Lakers,…

  4. 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…

  5. Glen Davis has another foot surgery to replace screw

    Jul 9, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Glen Davis

    Back in Jan. 30, Glen Davis had what up to that point had been a good season stopped when he injured his foot against the Knicks. That led a few days later to foot surgery that kept him out the rest of the rest of the season. It showed for Orlando on the court —…

  6. Monday And-1 links: Paul Pierce is relaxing, playing some poker

    Paul Pierce

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form.

  7. Dwight Howard and James Harden could form NBA’s best duo

    Jul 5, 2013, 7:43 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Dwight Howard is a center. James Harden is a guard. Howard is one of the NBA’s best defenders. Harden is one of the league’s top offensive players. Howard is an elite interior scorer. Harden’s range extends beyond the 3-point line. Howard is excellent as the screener in pick-and-rolls. Harden is superb as the ball-handler on…

  8. Report: Josh McRoberts reaches deal to re-sign with Bobcats

    Jul 5, 2013, 5:07 PM EDT

    Josh McRoberts

    Midseason Josh McRoberts was traded from Orlando to Charlotte for Hakim Warrick as two of the worst teams in the league rearranged the deck chairs on the Titanic. But McRoberts liked what he got in Charlotte — a starting role and nearly double the minutes. It showed on the court as he averaged what would…

  9. Reports: Eric Bledsoe trade rumors include Redick, Mayo

    Jul 1, 2013, 6:05 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks - Game Three

    We told you once Chris Paul said he was in for next season the Clippers would get serious about moving Eric Bledsoe. And Chris Paul says he is all in with the Clips. So expect new trade rumors for Bledsoe to start popping up, such as this one from Ramona Shelburne of ESPN Los Angeles:…

  10. Andre Iguodala a riskier free agent than meets the eye

    Jun 30, 2013, 8:30 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Denver Nuggets

    Which of these players would you have most liked on your team last season: Andres Nocioni, Baron Davis, Brendan Haywood, Charlie Bell, Chris Mihm, Corey Maggette, Damien Wilkins, Earl Watson, Elton Brand, Fred Jones, Hedo Turkoglu, Joel Przybilla, John Salmons, Lamar Odom, Mehmet Okur, Metta World Peace, Michael Redd, Rashard Lewis, Rasual Butler, Ricky Davis,…

  11. Report: Raptors also talking to Clippers about Eric Bledsoe

    Jun 29, 2013, 6:32 PM EDT

    DeMar DeRozan

    Once Chris Paul formally signs on the dotted line, it will not be long before Eric Bledsoe is moved. While Doc Rivers may wonder what a CP3/Bledsoe backcourt looks like, there are other holes on this roster and Bledsoe is a key trade piece to fill one. We know the Clippers are talking to the…

  12. Trey Burke ready to compete with new teammate point guards right now

    Jun 26, 2013, 2:33 PM EDT

    Michigan v Louisville

    NEW YORK – When Trey Burke committed to Michigan, the Wolverines still had Darius Morris. Though Morris’ NBA success as a Lakers second-round pick has been moderate at best, he was a star at Michigan. Morris left early for the NBA before Burke arrived in Ann Arbor, but Burke’s preparation for playing with Morris could…

  13. 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…

  14. Mark Cuban plans to lure top free agents by giving them roster input

    Jun 17, 2013, 4:36 PM EDT

    Mark Cuban

    The Mavericks enter the off-season as one of the major players in free agency. Not only do  they have money to spend, but they also have a history of championship level contention, a still very good Dirk Nowitzki, and Mark Cuban to close the deal when it’s time to make the pitch on why the…

  15. Otto Porter’s agent seems quite certain Porter won’t slip past No. 3 in draft

    Jun 12, 2013, 11:38 PM EDT

    Otto Porter Jr., John Thompson III

    Otto Porter is one of the most polished prospects in the NBA Draft. He showed an ability to run Georgetown’s offense, and his smooth jumper gave him success off the ball, too. He has ideal size for his position in the NBA, which made him a good defender in college. Porter is also younger than…

  16. LeBron, Durant, Kobe headline All NBA First Team

    May 23, 2013, 1:27 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    Even before the season tipped off you had a pretty good sense that LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Chris Paul would be All-NBA First Team — they are dominant players at or entering their peak. But Kobe Bryant and Tim Duncan continue to defy father time. The two veterans round out the All NBA Team…

  17. 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…

  18. Nate Robinson: The people’s champion

    May 7, 2013, 1:50 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game One

    If you only watch the last quarter of NBA playoff games, you have to be asking, “what is not to love about Nate Robinson?” We love the plucky underdog and Robinson is that — a guy listed at 5-foot-9 who has won the dunk contest twice. A guy leading a Bulls team so banged up…

  19. Pacers’ playoff-best offense disintegrates in Atlanta

    Apr 27, 2013, 10:58 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    Devin Harris needed just 4.5 seconds to slice through the Pacers’ defense for a layup late in the first half, leaving only 1.8 seconds for the Pacers. George Hill launched a desperation heave that obviously missed, but the look was only marginally better than the shots Indiana got most of the game. The Hawks’ offense…

  20. NBA Power Rankings: Heat end rankings where they ended last season

    Apr 15, 2013, 7:43 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Mike Miller, Mario Chalmers

    For the final power rankings of the year my criteria are simple: Who do I think is most likely to win a seven game series between the teams right now. It is essentially a playoff rankings. 1. Heat (64-16, last week ranked No. 1). For a couple games this week the Heat rolled out their…

  21. Tobias Harris hits three to force overtime vs. Bucks (VIDEO)

    Apr 11, 2013, 10:21 AM EDT

    Tobias Harris

    Way back in Summer League, PBT was trying to tell you that Tobias Harris could play. He was on the Bucks roster but with them having a few veterans and trying to make the playoffs, Scott Skiles (then Jim Boylan) buried him on the bench. Harris was traded to Orlando where young guys get the…

    Apr 11, 2013, 2:45 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Bryant leaves the court against the Portland Trail Blazers after their NBA game in Portland

    On a busy night in the NBA we need to give out a few honorable mentions for top stars. One goes to Andre Drummond, who had 29 points and 11 rebounds on the night. He could have been in the Rookie of the Year conversation if Lawrence Frank hadn’t sat on his minutes in the…

  24. Three Stars of the Night: Three All-Stars lead teams to wins

    Apr 8, 2013, 12:31 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    This was a tough night to narrow the list to three, some guys with huge games miss the cut — Russell Westbrook with 36 points and a near triple-double, Nikola Vucevic with 21 points and 21 boards for the Magic. But there was a key theme to go with for the night — current or…
