    In short, you're wrong.

    2019 NBA Draft Thread

    Unsure where this nonsense about we have too many forwards keeps coming from, we essentially have AG, Isaac and nothing else of note. We lack massively on wing depth. This allows us to have a nice 3 man 3/4 rotation sorted by adding a solid two way player that fits the ethos of the front office in that he can defend multiple positions and he can score the ball as an added bonus. The 2020 draft is loaded at the 2 spot as well so can quite easily target one in the next draft. It's very clear that the FO are aiming to have a solid lineup/team ready for the 2020/2021 season. They've said numerous times that they won't rush it. For me it's going to be hugely dependent on what they manage to do with Fournier's contract after next season and also on what Fultz actually is. Does that mean we could be worse next season, yes it does but I'm fine taking a small step back for a year in order to have a chance at sustained success with a pretty solid core that should keep developing and improving over time.

    I don't know with this one. I mean before the ACL he probably could have gone top ten but we could have traded back for this.

    2019 Offseason Thread

    Basically this . . . . We're not in a position to make big moves this off season. Pairing the 16 pick to Fournier isn't going to net you anything better and the DLo talk will be nothing more than his agent trying to up his payday, not that I would want him here anyway. It's why I also laugh anytime someone mentions Kemba like its a realistic option for him to come here. If we make any moves this offseason they will most likely be small. It's also more probable that we re-sign Vooch to a fair 4 year descending deal as I don't see anyone overpaying for him. Main thing for me this offseason is for them to find ways to improve our bench as it's still one of the worst in the league and would get substantially worse if we lose Ross, Birch is also likely to be gone as he seems to have the attention of other teams and there's no way we can afford to match if he gets a decent offer. Unfortunately the FO don't have much room to maneuver with the current cap issues/contracts Orlando has. If they find a way to improve our bench depth then I will consider it a very good offseason.

    Pretty crazy to me. I was one of those that was pretty excited to get Vogel when he first joined the Magic but after 2 seasons I could see why Bird got rid of him. Just don't feel the way his teams play suits the modern NBA at all. Jason Kidd as assistant is a bit of a strange one to me as well. Hope it goes terribly for them!

    Why do so many people keep thinking Fournier comes off the books when Mosgov does.

    Fournier doesn't come off the books next summer. He has a player option for 2020/21, there is no way he would turn down a guaranteed 17 million

    Magic Vs. Raptors - Friday, April 19th at 7:00 P.M.

    It was a really tough game to watch last night. Fournier just hasn't shown up at all throughout the series on either end and they have so much more depth than us. They've already out performed my expectations by winning a game but it definitely highlights the areas we severely lack in. Feels like we're heavily dependent on Fultz being a legit starter in order to get more bench production via DJ but then we could lose Ross or overpay. We have very little cap space to sign anyone of caliber short of renouncing and gutting the team. Vooch is our best player but may command more salary than he's worth, locking us into this current team for the next 4 or so years if we re-sign him and does he hold back Bamba in doing so? Moving on from Vooch would mean a step back and likely missing out on the playoffs next year with a view to being competitive the year after that when you have Mosgov and DJ deals expiring and another year of growth for Isaac and Bamba plus maybe some improvement for AG. I dunno, feels like this is going to be the toughest year for the FO in making the correct calls. We definitely have a good young core that will keep improving but that Fournier contract hamstrings us and Ross and Vooch are unrestricted at a time where commiting too much salary in either of them could keep us as just a 5-8 seed for a few years. Genuinely have no idea which way they will go!

    DJ, AG and Isaac were all immense today, Fournier was up and down but did ok, bad game from Vooch, they need to figure out a way to get him going against Gasol as he owned him the entire game. So proud of this team, was just hoping they kept each game close but to actually win one . . . . . so good!
