    Evan Mobley just signed a Max like Franz and Barnes. Franz and him are about the same level of talent in my opinion. https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/40606674/cavaliers-evan-mobley-agrees-5-year-224m-extension

    Markelle Fultz Appreciation Thread

    I hope that we offered him vet minimum and he turned it down, rather than us offering nothing. Also, am surprised that there has not been a team statement.

    I think the big thing is he doesn't need the minutes. Of course he will get them but as a long time vet he is good either way. A guy like Theo Maledon would need minutes because he is trying to stay in the league and prove he belongs. And as far as Franz and his shot, all the good forwards from the last 20 years usually took 3 to 5 years to develop a makeable 3 point range. I'm not talking about the shooters who come into the league with it like Trey Murphy or Doug McDermot. I'm talking about the great two way forwards like Paul George or Kawhi. Even Lebron. They were just flat out great at scoring and slowly moved their range outwards. Most of those guys and other lesser forwards like Gordon Hayward and big guards like Jaylen Brown took years to get their shot.He has to learn on the way it to not let it mess with his other game. He does everything else well enough to make up for a poor shooting night. Just can't have more 1-15 moments, it will shake his confidence. Just go to the basket more and if it's being defended pass. And soon we will have the shooters to make the decision easier.

    His shot was flat dating all the way back to the World Cup last summer. He had no arc on his shot, whatsoever. It was back on those 5 3pt attempt yesterday, which was nice to see.

    Do you think DJ, if Canadian, would have made the team? He is going to play for the Magic, no matter who is injured or not. That is the dna of this franchise. If we have a vet, no matter how crappy they are, they get minutes

    ahh damn. I don’t know the rules of these two ways.. I would have given Maledon the last roster spot, instead of Joseph then. Joseph isn’t going to provide anything besides veteran leadership. Couldn’t we just bring him in as n assistant? BTW, Mosley still not interested to replace Tibbets? What was Tibbets doing here if there is no replacement needed?

    not sure about that.. It was one game and he actually has changed his shot.. I noticed it during the season, but it’s getting worse imo.. He kinda brings the ball down all the way to his knees before going up. It’s the Lonzo shot. Don’t know if this is good or bad. I guess as long as it is in. Even though he had a good game, i’m still skeptical about his shot. Most of his points come inside the paint and he doesn’t do much outside of that area. It was an „All you can eat“ feast against the very tiny Japanese national team. Let’s see what he can do on Monday against the USA

    https://x.com/FawzanAmer_/status/1814365634085441719 Franz look like he got the arc back in his shot. It was pretty flat last season.

    The Memphis Grizzlies are trading forward Ziaire Williams and a 2030 second-round pick via Dallas to the Brooklyn Nets for Mamadi Diakite, sources tell ESPN. Williams was the 10th pick in the 2021 draft. Solid move for the rebuilding Nets.

    Maledon isn't eligible for a two-way contract.

    2024 NBA Summer League Thread

    Last 2 Two Way contracts should go to Maledon and I. Todd Maledon is a floor general we might need. He gets to the rim at will it seems and he sets up players. He should have had an easy Double Double against the Nets if it wasn’t for his bad teammates. Todd, i’m actually curious why he didn’t get to play. Maybe they’ve seen enough at practice? Good or bad. I’d choose Todd over Huff, just because Todd can play both PF and C. Imo he also played the right way in very limited minutes.

    Yeah that about sums it up. Cory couldn't even get the last spot on team Canada. He is here to be our vet minimum and be an influence on the young guys. Now it's all about getting to the regular season with no injuries, this would normally be when i check out for a few months but we still have the Olympics to watch. Will Canada upset USA? Can Germany finish second? Stay tuned Magic fans!

    Yeah, we didn’t sign Cory Joseph because he was the best player we could grab, we signed him because he won’t expect minutes or disturb the locker room if he doesn’t get them, and he’s a vet presence with deep playoff run experience. If we wanted our 15th man to be able to play consistently, we would have re-signed Markelle to the minimum

    Cory Joseph is a 15th man vet minimum who didn't have a roster spot the back half of the year after getting waived. Id bet money that if everyone's healthy he doesn't even get in the rotation.

    Guess I’m the only one watching. Lol. Anyway just heard that the NBA is now kissing the Sheik’s butt and naming the In season tournament the Emirate Cup. Proving once again that Made in the USA or even owned by an American company means Nothing to these big organizations. Bunch of money whores, that don’t give a dam about anything else.

    Cooper with 2 for 2 from 3. I heard the Magic signed this kid, so why haven’t we seen him till tonight? Inquiring minds need to know.

    Joseph will play and often! I’m calling it right now. He is the only point guard and he is a vet who has played well just a couple years ago. He is the new DJ. Sorry, Jay but AB still looks raw with no instincts to lead a team.

    Da Silva shooting is really impressive so far. Jett forcing things too much. Really wish we had gotten Shannon. That is all.

    Finally watched yesterday's game. Theo Maledon was kind of not great. Jay Huff still the only unsigned guy to consistently impress me. Tristan Da Silva could be an impactful oleplayer from day 1. The jumper looks so good.

    He's possibly the only true one. Too bad he's not at his best anyone and will be a borderline rotation player.

    Simons is a dynamic 2.5-level scorer -- his finishing at the rim is so-so -- who can really shoot and bumped up his playmaking. He has two years left on a nice contract, and looms as one of the league's most interesting trade chips. Trade machine enthusiasts have long directed Simons to the Orlando Magic, but he'd be a really interesting fit with the San Antonio Spurs -- who need shooting and have the defensive infrastructure to protect Simons. https://www.espn.com/nba/insider/story/_/id/40583390/lowe-7-most-discussed-nba-teams-offseason The national media keeps brining this up. Zach Lowe mentions it anytime he talks about The Magic or Blazers. I’m not looking to do anything before The Trade Deadline personally. I can’t wait to see our current roster perform next season.
