Tuesday’s Magic Word

  • The Orlando Magic began training camp today. One of the major storylines to come out from the first day is Tobias Harris logging minutes primarily at small forward.
  • Bradford Doolittle and Amin Elhassan of ESPN Insider think Jameer Nelson is better off as a third guard for another team. Doolittle believes Nelson is best served playing with the Indiana Pacers, while Elhassan suggests Nelson is aptly suited to play with the Toronto Raptors.
  • John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com chronicles Victor Oladipo’s first practice as an NBA player.
  • Nikola Vucevic talks about what he wants to improve on: “My goal this year is to be a better defensive player. I have to do that so that our team can be better. As I get older, stronger, it’s something I want to focus on.”
  • Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel: “Using Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook as the model, the Magic envision utilizing Oladipo’s dynamic athleticism at the point at times during the season. He was primarily a shooting guard at Indiana.”
  • Glen Davis is the key to the Magic’s defense.
