    2019 Offseason Thread

    Wait til free agency starts. It will change your whole opinion in the matter once we see our new players. Not to mention potential trades. I know they are doing their work on finding options and I don't think the sign and trade option with vooch might not be entirely off the table.

    2019 Offseason Thread

    Ehh.. not much into it. Not just yet. I mean, most of the big guys in the league has suffered similar injuries, including Vooch. Same goes with embidd and some others. Too early ro feel that way.

    What he meant is that we are in need for specific positional players that can help now. No more developmental players. Guys with experience that can contribute to the roster.

    Yeah. This is a business. You have to market this business. A way to do that is to keep people excited about it. The Organization do care about their fans. The season ticket holders and regular committed fans. No so much for the casual fan that dont follow the Magic as much as we do.

    I like Okeke. I always did. I remembe seeing him play againts my Gators and destroying them, not physically, but mentally. He is definetely a high IQ guy. I wanted him here. In fact, when I saw him playing in the post-season, I was sure he was going to be a top 10 and out of our range. Then the injury. I felt bad for the kid. I though he was going to still be picked but not sure where. I knew that Just like Jontay Porter that ACL injury was going to get him out of the first round. I was, and still am, not sure how he is going to come back from this injury. Jontay slipped out of the draft from his top 20 ranked position before the year and I though Okeke was going to be an early 2nd rounder for sure. I was bothered by the fact that my 2 favorite players outside the top 5 selected were still available. I was very high on Little and liked Clarke game a lot. I wanted Little. I mean, he is ready and although he was inconsistent this year, you can see he has potential to be an elite player. That was my take. Now, a healthy Okeke is above Clarke. So I am ok with that selection. I expect for Okeke to combe back 100%. We just need to be patient. The only thing that still bothering me after a couple of days since our selection is LITTLE. I am wondering why he slipped so much. t. You have to ask, Why To many organization passed on him?. They know something that we dont and I have to trust their judgement. I was not very high on NAW or any of the other SG's in this draft. I liked them but knew they were just going to be rotational players at best. We went with best player available. A guy that can help and contribute at a faster rate( even with his injury) than any of this other projects. So after a few days of thinking and analyzing this. I will give The Magic a B+ for their selection. Very happy and looking forward to free agency. Okeke, Welcome home.

    Our main plan should be to resign Ross but if we fail, then we should go after Rodney Hood. Hood is not a good defender but can shoot and score. He will be available and I dont see a reason for us to pass on him.

    I don't think anyone truly hates him. I just don't think he should be our starting SG anymore. We need to upgrade that position. I will be ok with him coming off the bench but his salary is way to high for a back up SG. We need consistency and he lacks that.

    2019 NBA Draft Thread

    I am looking forward to see Okeke in a magic uniform I am still figuring out what is going to happen with our SG and Center position. I just hope that we start the year with someone other than Fournier at SG. If we keep the same core there is a possibility we don't make playoff next year. Brooklyn, indiana, miami, Knicks, Boston are going to be aggressive in free agency. Toronto, Milwaukee and Phila are good enough to be back in the playoff. Cleveland, Chicago and Atlanta are making interesting moves. Then you have Detroit Washington and Charlotte that are in the same boat as we are. Where are we? Will see how this offseason goes. It can break us or keep us in contention.

    Naz Reid. Young and Athletic center. He will be nice to have. He went undrafted. He was considered to be a late first rounder prior his injury. Luguentz Dort is another guy(SG) we shoulder invite. He was also considered to be an early second rounder. Jontay Porter: Good stretch 4/5. At 6'11''. He can pass and shoot the ball well.

    He will be out for the season. They will not rush him. I dont see them getting him back this season. He might play some games for the Lakeland magic.

    meh.. we can say the same thing about any of the players drafted. I like Okeke but not sure how he fit in our core with Isaac, AG and Bamba as our future SF, PF and Center. I guess he can be a core bench guy but I dont want to see Fournier any longer as our SG. He is currently our only SG.

    I agree. Not sure what is happening. We dont have any true SG in our roster other than Fournier. It would have been nice to have one prospect in this position.

    Pardon is an undersized, heavy and slow 6'7-6'8" center. Poor free trow shooter and not much of a jump shot. Only good about him is his basketball IQ. Law is ok. Just another forward. Dont know much about him Jeffries is interesting but not sure he will be able to make the roster. I dont think he is a great shooter. Good hustly guy with decent basketball IQ. I guess we are looking at basketball IQ. why not giving Taco or Jontay Porter any love then?
