Orlando Magic

  1. Stan Van Gundy fires back at Pat Riley's verbal retaliation

    Sep 12, 2010, 9:22 AM EDT

    I’m pretty sure we’ve got a bonafide war of words on our hands. Stan Van Gundy responded Saturday to Pat Riley’s comments about himself and Magic GM Otis Smith and their criticism of the Heat. In an interview with the Magic’s website, Van Gundy laughed at what he considers to me a double-standard with Riley.…

  2. Dwight Howard has become "7- foot-tall bottle of medicine" for woman fighting cancer

    Sep 8, 2010, 1:58 PM EDT

    Kay Kellogg has it a lot tougher than Dwight Howard. Kellogg doesn’t have Shaq and the Celtics or the Miami Heat to worry about. But she has cancer. Stage 3 Multiple Myeloma, and it is incurable. She is also an Orlando Magic season ticket holder whose one wish was to meet Dwight Howard. Recently that…

  3. Adonal Foyle gets front office job with Magic

    Sep 7, 2010, 10:05 PM EDT

    Adonal Foyle was about as beloved as an NBA journeyman can be. Because he was a lot more than that. Foyle was active in philanthropy, part of the players union and just a renaissance man in the world of basketball. Media, fans, teammates, everybody loved him. When he retired last month people hated to see…

  4. Magic get building sponsor — for their parking garage

    Sep 2, 2010, 10:55 AM EDT

    The Orlando Magic will play in the brand-spankin’-new Amway Arena this season. If you go to a game there, you will park in the new Geico parking structure — yes, Orlando has secured a sponsorship for their parking garage. Seriously. Sports Business Journal has the story (via TrueHoop’s twitter feed). The insurance firm signed a…

  5. Report: Allen Iverson linked to the Hornets and Magic

    Aug 20, 2010, 1:10 PM EDT

    UPDATE 1:10 PM: Marc Stein of ESPN.com refuted part of the initial report via Twitter. Stein says he has “been assured Hornets have not/will not express interest in Iverson.” No confirmation if the same is true for the Magic as of yet. 10:59 AM: According to Sam Amico of NBA.com, the New Orleans Hornets and…

  6. Adonal Foyle retires, but he has a long journey ahead

    Aug 17, 2010, 8:45 AM EDT

    According to Brian Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel, Adonal Foyle has decided to retire. That’s not “Magic center Adonal Foyle,” or “twelve-year veteran Adonal Foyle,” even if he happens to be both of those things. Rather, the NBA’s most renowned renaissance man, one of its most inquisitive minds, and one if its most philanthropic individuals…

  7. Bollywood basketball in the rain — all we need is Dwight Howard

    Aug 5, 2010, 10:30 PM EDT

    Hey, are you like, checkin’ me out? Dwight Howard is headed to India to promote the NBA in a country where basketball is the sport you play as a child, until you grow up and play cricket like real men. Unless it is a sexy basketball scene in the rain, then Bollywood is good with…

  8. Can the Heat be beat inside?

    Aug 5, 2010, 12:15 PM EDT

    Nobody is going to be better than the Miami Heat at the two, three and four spots. But picture them playing Orlando. Jameer Nelson has the ball (guarded by Mario Chalmers) and Dwight Howard (covered by Joel Anthony) comes out to set the high pick. That is a hard-to-stop P&R combo for any team, and…

  9. Jason Williams set to re-up with Orlando, securing a three-deep PG rotation

    Aug 3, 2010, 1:36 PM EDT

    UPDATE 1:36 PM: According to Tim Povtak of NBA FanHouse, Williams’ deal with the Magic will be a one-year affair for the veteran minimum ($1.36 million). 11:24 AM: Jason Williams was a fine backup for the Magic last season, albeit one who completely disappeared in the playoffs; his three-point shooting percentage dropped from .380 to…

  10. Ryan Anderson isn't messing around this summer

    Jul 31, 2010, 7:30 PM EDT

    Ryan Anderson was considered a throw-in in the Vince Carter deal for the Magic last summer. A promising power forward with some range that would make a nice end-of-the bench guy. But those in the know recognized that Anderson wasn’t only tall with promising rebounding numbers (19% rebounding rate- percentage of all available rebounds obtained),…

  11. All of a sudden, Dwight Howard is the voice of reason

    Jul 31, 2010, 2:25 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard has never been accused of being the coolest cucumber in the refrigerator. He’s generally considered a silly young buck. But in a recent interview with the Atlanta Journal Constitution, he showed a tremendous amount of perspective regarding how teams build themselves for the playoffs, and the treacherous nature of building…

  12. Orlando Magic keeping Stan Van Gundy, Otis Smith around a few more years

    Jul 28, 2010, 10:48 AM EDT

    Bombs away, Orlando. The system of Dwight Howard in the paint and host of guys chucking up threes around him is not going anywhere soon — the Orlando Magic have extended the contracts of coach Stan Van Gundy and General Manager Otis Smith through 2013, according to the Orlando Sentinel. Smith is now the president…

  13. Dwight Howard on the Heat: "They're not going to be the best team in the NBA next year"

    Jul 27, 2010, 9:27 AM EDT

      Dwight Howard and Rajon Rondo have been sharing notes in class, apparently. No shock that the top teams — led by the top competitors — see what happened in Miami and want to take it on. There’s no shortage of people around the league that want to knock the Heat down a notch or…

  14. Summer Lovin', featuring Kobe Bryant and Matt Barnes

    Jul 26, 2010, 12:44 PM EDT

    Matt Barnes has an incredible tendency to get on his opponents’ nerves, and it’s easy to understand why. Barnes never stops talking. He’s no stranger to the hard foul or the occasional cheap shot. He holds, he pushes, he yaps, and he plays hard. That’s not the kind of thing that makes for an ideal…

  15. LeBron's rooting interest in the Chris Paul ordeal. Also, Freemasonry.

    Jul 26, 2010, 11:45 AM EDT

    If we’ve learned anything from free agency this summer, it’s that NBA superstars are a part of some secret, underground, Freemason-esque society. LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh have been conspiring to team up for the last 15 years, and only now, with all of the planets in perfect alignment in their orbits and…

  16. Chris Paul may want to go to the Magic, but a trade to Orlando looks fairly improbable

    Jul 26, 2010, 10:38 AM EDT

    It’s easy to understand why Chris Paul would want to play for the Orlando Magic. Stan Van Gundy may be more demanding than most coaches, but he produces winning teams that dominate defensively. There’s also a guy there named Dwight Howard, and most online forum commenters seem to think he’s pretty good. The Magic could…

  17. Chris Paul has a Magic preference

    Jul 23, 2010, 9:01 PM EDT

    After Chris Paul’s list of places he’d like to be traded to came out, the natural response was to seek out a preference of Paul, the Hornets, and King of Mardis Gras. Just as it was with LeBron, only without any sort of leverage on the part of the player, every city of fans believe…

  18. Who really is on Chris Paul's trade demand list?

    Jul 22, 2010, 2:02 PM EDT

    Chris Paul wants to get traded, we get it. What we don’t get is where, exactly. The first report from Ken Berger of CBSSports.com said the Knicks, Magic and Lakers were on the list. But that’s not what ESPN’s Chris Broussard heard, and he is probably as well connected with LeBron’s people and the marketing…

  19. After Toronto's stumble, the race for Matt Barnes is now wide open

    Jul 21, 2010, 11:06 AM EDT

    The Toronto Raptors thought they were close to acquiring Matt Barnes via sign-and-trade, but apparently somebody didn’t do their homework, causing the deal to go through. With no cap space left to sign Barnes, no Bird rights (or even early Bird rights), and the inability to use salary cap exceptions to sign him and subsequently…

  20. J.J. Redick feels he's ready to start

    Jul 20, 2010, 11:01 AM EDT

    J.J. Redick’s gradual development has finally paid off, as the Orlando Magic will pay him $19 million over the next three seasons. However, there’s obviously something to be said about Redick signing an offer sheet with the Chicago Bulls in the first place; while J.J. does seem legitimately happy to return to Orlando, he clearly…

  21. Magic strongly considering matching Bulls' offer for Redick

    Jul 11, 2010, 9:39 AM EDT

    The Orlando Magic must really dislike the restricted free agency system. Because there have been several times where it really seems like they’re just matching offers from other teams out of spite. Last year it was Marcin Gortat, who was frozen in place despite an offer from the Mavericks that would have given him more…

  22. Bulls continue to make all the right moves, sign J.J. Redick to $20 million offer sheet

    Jul 10, 2010, 12:09 AM EDT

    The Chicago Bulls have correctly identified their team’s biggest flaws — consistent production from the 4, perimeter shooting, supplementary scoring — and made move after move to make themselves a better team. They’ve picked up Carlos Boozer, signed Kyle Korver, and now, according to Chad Ford of ESPN.com, have signed Orlando Magic shooting guard J.J.…

  23. Dwyane Wade wants Jason Williams to run the point for the Heat

    Jul 8, 2010, 11:19 AM EDT

    Regardless of whether LeBron James graces Miami with his presence, the Heat will need to fill out their roster with bargain bin talent. Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh will eat up a lot of cap space on their own, which means Miami just doesn’t have room to go after many mid-level players. That’s why Jason…

  24. Magic trade for Gilbert Arenas a "definite possibility."

    Jun 28, 2010, 12:53 PM EDT

    The Orlando Magic are in a tough spot. One season removed from the NBA finals the ground is shifting beneath their feet — Chicago could be a power, Miami could return to power, maybe both… the road to the finals in the East is getting harder. Desperate times call for desperate measures — and nothing…

  25. Magic rumored to be considering a re-do with Hedo

    Jun 25, 2010, 2:47 PM EDT

    And now, officially, we have heard everything. Rumors are swirling that the Magic are looking to trade Vince Carter to clear the way for Hedo Turkoglu to return to Orlando. The Orlando Sentinel confirms this Salvador Dali painting of a rumor. Details of how it would shake out are unclear, and frankly might never get…
