    Fultz will bolster the bench. If he gets his Mojo back and stays healthy all year then we can dream.The easiest path to a better team is Fournier having a career year like Vucevic,Ross and DJ had last year. It's the right time for him and he's the right age.I hope he can do it. It's not as interesting or as fun as dreaming of Futlz but it's more likely to happen.Also i'm excited about Issac, the kid seems to have the right attitude.He could be our Garnett! Bring on training camp!

    Will AG Become Elite?

    Watch Siakam, when he doesn't have a shot he goes to the rim and scores or gets fouled. This is what Gordon is missing to be a star.

    The Pelicans are my new team to watch when i'm not watching the Magic. They are gonna be fun to watch next year and probably a real contender soon. The east still feels light years behind the west. Can't wait till training camp.

    I can possibly see us looking to the Bulls and Dunn if Satoransky and White steal all his minutes by December.

    The trade works with just Evan and Bamba, Spurs have always loved big men. Currently they have Jacob Poeltl, Aldrige and not much else. Edit. We do need something to talk about! forget about trades.... i would love to get a All-star year from Evan before he bolts in free agency. Who else thinks he can do what Vooch did last year and make the All-star team in a contract year?

    Nobody can predict the future, but if Evan has a great year he is almost sure to opt out because he is so young. DeRozan is a coin flip i would guess.

    While postion-less basketball is in vogue someone has to bring the ball up the court.

    Alas, 4thewin is right, It has to be Fournier and either DJ or Bamba to make the salaries fit. I like Derozan and he fits our timeline. I just hope if we are trading Fournier and Dj we are getting White back. Dj and Fournier are 2 of our main ball handlers and Fultz has almost zero NBA experience. He could be the second coming of Chris Paul and he is still going to be raw this year.

    Never mind, trying to post highlights from Pelicans game. Alexander Walker looks good.

    Why does DJ Augustin show up in almost any trade that is posted? Until we see Fultz on the floor Dj, MCW and Fournier are the only real ball handlers on this team. Anyway i like the idea of rolling back our defensive team in this crazy off season. Like some other people said we should do well just because our guys know how to play together. I think we can win 50 games if the guys stay healthy. So here are my top reasons the Magic win the division next year and win 50 games. 1. Our division sucks.I Do not like the Butler Heat, health is even more important for them.Hawks are 2 years away. 2. Evan has a career year.For the few who don't know Evan has a player option for next year. If he plays well he will surely opt out and get paid, hardly any free agents next year worth signing. 3. DJ stays healthy. Not as big as last year, but still important. I think down the road we do have Fultz back and our forwards can handle the ball a little. None of them are Hedo, so he better stay healthy. 4.Isaac and Gordon take a leap.I'm putting these two together.Either they raise this team up or we stay the same.Ross and Vucevic might be our steadiest players, but Gordon and Isaac have to get better for us to be special. 5.We start strong. This is a big one, have to have a good December. No more slow starts.

    This off season is a testament to Dwight Howard, the bad teammate, coach killer, disgruntled former star. He has so many former teams that could have used a back-up center on minimum. Orlando has the deepest team it has had in years and could have used a mentor or depth. Stretches Mozgod to sign Birch. This one is the least likely, they have youth and an all-star at center. The Lakers need veterans who have already made money and need a ring. They sign Mcgee and Cousins. Definitely more upside there, didn't help himself with his tenure at both clubs. And lastly, the Rockets make a huge trade, they are going for it in the western conference.The Rockets have almost no depth at center, this is a team really going for it.The Rockets sign Tyson Chandler. Clearly Dwightmare Howard has burned more bridges then anyone in NBA history.

    I'll come back to it when they get the salaries in. I guess in a nutshell do you think giving up on Bamba and Futlz now along with future draft picks is worth Beal? And do you think the Wizards would punt on this season? Guessing from their transactions i would think they are trying to compete while Wall is injured.I just think they might be swayed by a big offer because of what happened in OKC.

    Fixed the link, yeah i get it Ish smith messed it up. Pretty sure it would work with Wagner and Ish or just leave them out.

    Ok one last stupid trade and then i'll stop. How about we offer this trade to the wizards plus 2 firsts. http://www.espn.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=y4s69sht We do it to get the all-star scorer we have needed while selling our youngest players. Lets face it these guys could be the future but they can also get hurt or decrease their value this season. Right now both are a mystery. Washington does this because with Wall sidelined the whole year might be the time to get an very high draft pick. If Fultz works out i can see him being a guard they can pair with wall or be groomed by wall. Bamba because washington has coveted a high upside center for years.2 picks because we are in win now mode, time to get this **** done. Edit had wrong link
