Came to see the summer league, and an Orlando Magic regular-season game broke out.
Maurice Harkless, Andrew Nicholson, DeQuan Jones, Kyle O'Quinn and Doron Lamb were on the floor at Amway Center.
The Magic could have charged people to see these guys....

One more piece, Otis.
One more piece that allows you to go from Major Fail to Major Coup.
Snag a serviceable backup center, and the Orlando Magic are right there in the conversation of NBA championship contenders.
As good as they look now, the...

The truest mission statement for the Magic is not about winning a title this season.
It's about keeping Dwight Howard in town.
Can't accomplish one without the other, anyway.
To update, as of Thursday, nothing has changed on the Howard trade front,...

Running off at the typewriter …
Well, it's already official. New Jacksonville Jaguars GM David Caldwell has only been on the job a couple of days and he's already as big a dummy as old Jacksonville Jaguars GM Gene Smith. Caldwell, in only his...

The Magic's MVP at this point of the season is a guy who isn't playing and hasn't scored a point the past five games. A 290-pound ghost.

Even though the Magic point toward the future, there's no time like the present to start teenage rookie Maurice Harkless.
Pencil him in the lineup.
See how it will go for Moe.
