Will Rookie Duo Spend Time Developing in D-League?

Recommended Posts

ORLANDO – The Magic have used their D-League affiliate the past two seasons as much as I’ve used my winter wardrobe since moving down to Orlando.


They haven’t touched it at all.


In fact, the last time the Magic made a D-League transaction was when they recalled Marcin Gortat from the Anaheim Arsenal on Dec. 2, 2007.


Since that time they’ve been affiliated with three different squads – the Bakersfield Jam, Reno BigHorns and New Mexico Thunderbirds – and haven’t made a single move.


But that trend could change this season. With two raw rookies on its current roster – Daniel Orton and Stanley Robinson – Orlando could opt to give its young players some court time with the T-Birds.


“It’s more likely than it’s been the past few years,” said Magic President of Basketball Operations Otis Smith. “If we have four or five nights where we’re away then we might send them down for a couple games so they can get some games in.”
