Season finale might be Jameer Nelson's last game with the Orlando Magic

The Orlando Magic's game tonight at Amway Center will close their 2013-14 season. It also could mark the end of the team's Jameer Nelson era. Nelson might not be with the franchise next season. Although he's about to complete just the second year of a three-year contract, his salary for the 2014-15 season is only partially guaranteed. If the Magic waive him before July...

Zach Lowe picks Victor Oladipo as ROY

“Oladipo is a bulldog with long arms, and he has predictably fared better on defense. Real plus/minus paints him as a positive on that end, he can check multiple positions, and he has generated steals without gambling irresponsibly. The Magic have allowed six fewer points per 100 possessions when Oladipo plays. Those numbers are noisy, but it’s tough to find much evidence Oladipo...

Jameer Nelson on his future ☆

“I do think about it a lot, but I don’t know what the future holds. I don’t know the plan. I just have to be patient and see that they are going to do because it’s the team’s option (with his contract). “I would definitely like to stay with the Magic, but it’s a business and it’s up to these guys,’’ Nelson said. “I haven’t talked to them much about (the plan...

Nick Anderson and Pat Williams were only choice for Hall of Fame

When the Magic announced there would be a Hall of Fame formed in the Amway Center at the beginning of the year, it was clear who would be the first players and executives to be honored. It could only be the original Magic men. Pat Williams was the driving force for forming the team. There is no Orlando Magic without. No Orlando Arena. Maybe not even an Orlando as we know it. Downtown...

Magic Musings: Brooklyn's barrage of 3s sinks Orlando

Despite having both Nikola Vucevic and Jameer Nelson unavailable, the Orlando Magic more than held their own for the first two quarters against the playoff-bound Brooklyn Nets. The third quarter was another matter. The Nets, who gave up 115 points in a loss at Orlando last week, unleashed a barrage of 3-point field goals at halftime and withstood a challenge by the Magic early in...

Orlando Magic Lose to the Nets

The Orlando Magic fell to the Brooklyn Nets 97-88 on Sunday night in Brooklyn.  The Magic really played well in this one, all things considered.  If not for being on the wrong end of a 13-0 run in the middle of the 3rd quarter, this game was very even throughout.  Orlando was led in scoring by Tobias Harris with 18 points off the bench.  Jameer Nelson and Nik Vucevic sat this...

Arron Afflalo, Orlando Magic look to finish season strong

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Although Arron Afflalo led the Orlando Magic in scoring with 25 points Wednesday night in their 115-111 victory over the Brooklyn Nets, it was something he did that didn't register in the box score which might have stood out most. Afflalo dove on the floor for a loose ball in front of the Magic bench during the first quarter with the sort of energy that wouldn...
