    2022 Off-season Thread

    I just wanted to share this article, it’s a summary on Franz Wagner and how good of a rookie season he had. It validates all the flashes we saw from him throughout the year and how he has all the tools necessary to succeed and possibly become a star in this league. We just need to develop him correctly because the sky is the limit for this young man. https://apple.news/AB04f67lHOJqFde8B-zBAhQ

    Well said I feel the same way and I’m sure others on here do as well.

    2021-2022 Orlando Magic Season Thread… Let’s Goo!!!

    Not sure where you got young stars from my post pretty sure I said promising young players. Franz showed enough flashes of great playmaking ability on both ends of the floor to give us hope he’s going to turn into one the longer he is in the league. Not sure how you can count Suggs out when he’s still so young and has only played 1 season. Carter continues to develop his 3 point shot/inside game and was playing out of position most of the year when he’s clearly a 5 and not a 4. Chuma’s game regressed due to the lack of a legitimate point guard and him having to do things he normally wouldn’t have to on offense like creating his own shot off the dribble he’s more of a slasher, spot up 3 point, defensive minded player. To say we don’t have talent is ridiculous and not taking into account the amount of injuries we had and saying it didn’t affect our record this year is just as silly.

    You fail to factor in all the injuries we had this year. We have a healthy roster and we wouldn’t be the worse team in the league simple as that. I do agree we have been mismanaged but we have plenty of young promising talent to be excited about. I think we can make the play in tournament next year if everyone stays healthy.

    I agree having Fultz healthy and playing starters minutes will change this team drastically. It was evident we played much better with him on the court and he made everyone around him better. Also add in the fact our rookies will have the off-season to improve and I can see us winning 30+ games next season. We are going to be much better than this year contrary to what JJZFL believes. He’s the most negative fan I have ever encountered lol.

    I can see why the coaching staff likes RJ. He’s lightning quick, very aggressive and surprisingly strong when driving to the basket, and he hustles on both sides of the floor. Sure his shot isn’t dropping consistently but with more in game reps I think this can be corrected. Doesn’t help he shares the backcourt with Cole who only gives up the ball after he’s run around the perimeter with more than half the shot clock gone and then gives it to other guys who need to take last second contested shots.

    Yeah Coles game right now is not conducive to playing winning team basketball. Once Fultz is off his minutes restriction I fully expect him to replace Cole in the starting lineup. Between T-Ross and Cole there’s a lot left to be desired on both sides of the floor.

    I can agree with you but I’d rather develop Suggs with a competent PG because he has shown flashes of great defense and hustle and his effort is just contagious on both sides of the floor. Anthony has a lot to work on to become a player who makes his teammates better on offense and defense where Suggs is already doing that. Once Jalen becomes consistent with his jumper he is going to be lethal.

    I prefer the Fultz/Suggs backcourt because they both like to get their other teammates involved where as Anthony is looking for his shot first which I think would better suit the 2nd unit. Also that duo defensively is much better and they would be able to switch without creating a mismatch for the other team to take advantage of.

    Fultz doing what he does best playing great team basketball and keeping the ball moving. Once he gets off his minutes restriction he needs to be starting for us and Anthony needs to go to the bench. Fultz balances our roster out and let’s Anthony be that offensive spark for the 2nd unit.

    James Harden to the 76ers for Ben Simmons, Seth Curry, Andre Drummond and 2 first round picks. Wow!

    I wouldn’t be opposed to seeing how it works because in theory you’re right it would be hard for the opposing defense to contain since they can’t double team both of them at the same time. I’m just worried we are stunting the development of our younger guys playing Ross the valuable minutes other players could get. I wouldn’t be against signing Gary Harris to a reasonable team friendly deal seeing as he has found his rhythm and is playing pretty well for us. We need to trade Ross before the deadline and get at least a 2nd round pick for him.

    I’m not saying we ask him to play Ross’s role off the bench. I agree we don’t need him shooting every shot playing with the 2nd unit but we do need someone who is capable of creating their own shot when our starters take a breather whether it’s shooting or driving to the basket which Cole is very good at doing. He is also a willing passer most of the time, plays with a lot of effort, and try’s to find the open man. We need to get rid of Ross as he clearly isn’t part of our future and let Cole have more room to work handling the ball and creating for himself and others with that 2nd unit. Part of the problem with our current bench is that nobody can make shots consistently except for Ross and he’s off more times than not. I’d experiment with Cole coming off the bench and providing that spark before I’d ever consider trading him especially when we don’t even have a healthy team. He’s flashed enough scoring potential to warrant him in that role ala Manu Ginobili or Jamal Crawford.

    Once Fultz comes back we can slide Anthony to the 2nd unit/6th man role and let him run the show when the starters come out. He will provide that offensive spark while the starters rest. Our 2nd unit has been pretty terrible and this would fix a lot of our problems with that squad. If Cole embraces this role I can envision a world where we keep all 3 of Fultz, Suggs, and Anthony. Of course this all hinges on if Fultz is the same player pre injury. I guess we will find out soon enough.
