Orlando Magic

  1. 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.…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. Magic, Nets, Knicks ask about trading for Chris Paul

    Jun 22, 2010, 4:42 PM EDT

    UPDATE 4:42 pm: The Magic’s offer to get Chris Paul out of New Orleans had to at least make the Hornets pause — Jameer Nelson and Vince Carter for CP3 and James Posey. That according to FanHouse’s Tim Potvik. That deal would save the Hornets money long term — this is the last year of…

  6. Orlando Magic decide to get really creative, change up their logo

    Jun 15, 2010, 11:24 AM EDT

    A logo change for the Magic has been in the works for some time now, but images of Orlando’s new logo have finally surfaced today. I could tell you it was revolutionary, a beautifully creative design etched by the hands of a visionary. Or, I guess, I could just show you this wonder of modern…

  7. Dwight Howard is at least hanging out with Hakeem Olajuwon

    Jun 12, 2010, 10:48 PM EDT

    Two weeks ago, Hakeem Olajuwon mentioned during the Eastern Conference Finals that he would be meeting with Dwight Howard over the summer. It would appear that wasn’t just publicity talk. Magic blog Orlando Pinstriped Post was the first to catch it. Howard started posting to Twitter about being in Houston, and then posted a photo…

  8. Dwight Howard thanks the fans

    Jun 2, 2010, 2:50 PM EDT

    Cool little video from Dwight Howard, thanking the Orlando fans for their support this season. Classy. Clearly unrehearsed, which makes it feel more authentic. He and the players were not happy — and should not have been happy — with their playoff exit to Boston. Still took the time to do this. Watch for yourself.

  9. Adonal Foyle weighs retirement

    Jun 1, 2010, 8:11 AM EDT

    Adonal Foyle did not set foot on the court last season. He played 62 minutes the year before. Blame his knees — he had he right one operated on back in training camp, then later in the season he hurt the left one. That’s the kind of thing that has a man thinking about retirement…

  10. Howard may miss world championships as well

    May 31, 2010, 7:38 PM EDT

    According to the Associated Press, Dwight Howard has joined LeBron James and Dwyane Wade in being undecided about whether or not he will play in the world championship games this summer. Unlike James and Wade, Howard will not have to make a free agency decision this summer, but he is thinking of skipping the games…

  11. Matt Barnes to opt-out, become a free agent

    May 31, 2010, 1:16 PM EDT

    Matt Barnes had a rough conference finals, as he was asked to chase around Paul Pierce and Ray Allen with a sore back, but all in all he had a fairly successful season as a role player for the Magic. So much so that Barnes himself apparently thinks he’ll be able to make more than…

  12. Dwight Howard developing a jumper would be best offseason move for Magic

    May 29, 2010, 11:38 AM EDT

    The Orlando Magic are close. They went to the NBA finals last season, the Eastern Conference finals this season. You can see a championship from where they stand. But what is it going to take to get into the Promised Land? It’s about getting more out of what they have, not bringing in anything new.…

  13. NBA Playoffs, Magic Celtics: Brandon Bass is giving the Magic a nice boost

    May 28, 2010, 12:54 PM EDT

    After playing sparingly throughout the regular season and in the first two rounds of the playoffs, Brandon Bass has been unearthed. After two successful seasons with the Mavs averaging nearly 20 minutes a game, Bass was boxed up and hidden away in Stan Van Gundy’s attic. There were just too many big bodies worthy of…

  14. NBA Playoffs, Celtics Magic Game 5: Magic find their form, pull within game of Celtics

    May 27, 2010, 12:08 AM EDT

    You can talk about Perkins’ suspension. You can talk about Rajon Rondo’s second consecutive sub-par game. You can talk about Garnett and Pierce both struggling from the field. But the biggest reason the Orlando Magic won game five of the Eastern Conference Finals is that they played like the team who won 59 games in the regular…

  15. NBA Playoffs Celtics Magic Game 5: The Celtics are banged up, but not the ones you'd suspect

    May 26, 2010, 11:42 PM EDT

    Coming into the playoffs, the big question about the Boston Celtics was health. Would Ray Allen have his legs? Would Paul Pierce’s shoulder and knee respond? Would KG’s knee hold up after giving out last year? The Big Three were the question. And when the Celtics ripped off eleven wins in 14 games, they looked…

  16. NBA Playoffs Celtics Magic Game 5: Get ready to hear a lot about Kendrick Perkins and technicals

    May 26, 2010, 11:01 PM EDT

    These playoffs had way too little controversy. Luckily, Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals supplied us with all we’re going to be needing for a while. In the first quarter, Paul Pierce drove after a perimeter whistle was called. Gortat double fouled him and sent him to the ground. Kendrick Perkins reached down to…

  17. Stan Van Gundy has his job… and little use for Michael Wilbon

    May 26, 2010, 4:23 PM EDT

    There have been plenty of people in Orlando calling for the head of Stan Van Gundy. It’s ludicrous. We’ve gone into that. But the calls are out there. Not from anybody credible, mind you. Magic general manager Otis Smith was outright dismissive of the claims Van Gundy’s job was in danger. Not the standard denial,…

  18. NBA Playoffs, Magic Celtics Game 5: Vince Carter should do the exact same thing he did last game, only completely different and much better

    May 26, 2010, 1:30 PM EDT

    Vince Carter had no redeemable value for the Magic in Game 4. He wasn’t scoring well, and finished with just three points on 1-for-9 shooting. He wasn’t making plays for his teammates, even if he wasn’t necessarily a ball-stopper. He wasn’t hitting the boards particularly hard, and he certainly wasn’t making any significant contributions on…

  19. NBA Playoffs: Teams for the Finals may not be set, but the schedule is

    May 26, 2010, 12:17 PM EDT

    Now that the Lakers-Suns series is guaranteed to go beyond five games, the schedule for the NBA Finals is confirmed. With the hope of avoiding a significant layoff in between the Conference Finals and the Finals, all general NBA fans should become Suns fans in the short-term. At least until they win one more game…

  20. NBA Playoffs Celtics Magic Game 5: Stan Van Gundy has to be willing to gamble

    May 26, 2010, 10:50 AM EDT

    Once again, Orlando, this is it. You staved off the monster, backing into a cave and swiping at its tentacles, forcing Rajon Rondo to the locker room, forcing Kevin Garnett into tough decisions (other than yelling and barking), and generally didn’t suck. Congratulations. Now you just need to do it three more times in a…

  21. NBA Playoffs, Magic Celtics: Game 4 a good a reason as any of why Stan Van Gundy's job isn't in jeopardy

    May 25, 2010, 1:59 PM EDT

    The Magic were on the brink of franchise embarrassment on Monday night, as the Celtics were in command of the series with a 3-0 lead and came back to force overtime despite fantastic outings by Dwight Howard and Jameer Nelson. Orlando’s season could have drifted away had Paul Pierce found an open Ray Allen at…

  22. NBA Playoffs Celtics Magic Game 4: Magic fight off the icy cold hands of Celtics to stay alive

    May 24, 2010, 11:48 PM EDT

    You didn’t think it was gonna be that easy, did you? Actually, for a second there? We all probably did. The Orlando Magic staved off elimination Monday night with a gutsy 96-92 overtime win in Boston, avoiding a sweep and sending the series back to Orlando for Game 5. It was the first time all…

  23. NBA Playoffs Celtics Magic Game 3: Glen Davis is the harbinger of doom

    May 23, 2010, 1:08 AM EDT

    Glen Davis plays like a drunk seal, often falling over on routine shots, belly flopping like he’s trying to earn a cracker. He’s a thick-fingered power forward with minimal elevation and low athletic upside. He shot 43.7% from the floor this season and was criticized for not having his focus ready. Well, the seal’s grown…

  24. NBA Playoffs Celtics Magic Game 3: Celtics somehow manage to outdo themselves

    May 22, 2010, 10:50 PM EDT

    There is no point in playing Game 4. None. If there was any way, I think the Magic would actually be okay with a mercy rule and just calling it a three game sweep. Because they clearly have no interest in trying at all. It’s a struggle to find a hook to explain this game.…

  25. NBA Playoffs Celtics Magic Game 3: Celtics dominating Magic, reaching for brooms

    May 22, 2010, 9:48 PM EDT

    Can we end this series now? Are we going to force ourselves to go through a Game 4? At the half, the Orlando Magic, facing an 0-2 deficit with little hope, their backs against the wall with their playoff lives on the line, are getting destroyed 51-34 by the Boston Celtics. This series could not…
