The Orlando Magic has started the second half of the season with a loss to the Miami Heat. They have now lost their last six assignments, dropping to a 13-24 record in the Eastern Conference. It could be time to trade Aaron Gordon.
Coming off another abysmal showing in the playoffs, the Orlando Magic will be facing a potential total reboot this offseason. Even though the Magic showed quite an improvement considering that they made it to the playoffs for two straight years, it always seemed like the team just doesn't have the arsenal to keep up with the elite contenders in the Eastern Conference.
he bright spot that automatically comes with a losing record is that you will have the opportunity to select a topnotch prospect in the draft. The Golden State Warriors, who finished their 2019-20 campaign with a lowly 15-50 win-loss slate, got just that as they were given the 2nd overall pick during the recently-concluded 2020 NBA Draft Lottery.
Orlando Magic centre Nikola Vucevic is a free agent this offseason, creating a major dilemma for the Eastern Conference’s 2018/19 eighth seed.
The Orlando Magic big man is having a career year, averaging career-highs in total rebounds, blocks, assists and points. He is shooting a career-best 37% from three-point range too, hitting 1.2 threes per game.
