Wednesday’s Magic Word

  • Jameer Nelson knows there’s a strong possibility he may get traded this season — along with Arron Afflalo and Glen Davis. Nate Drexler touches on the possibility of the latter two players being dealt.
  • Glen Davis has openly admitted that his surgically repaired left foot will never be the same.
  • General manager Rob Hennigan, head coach Jacque Vaughn, and Magic players share their thoughts on Victor Oladipo.
  • What should Magic fans expect from Tobias Harris this season? Tyler Lashbrook of Orlando Pinstriped Post tries to answer that question.
  • Jason Maxiell is making an impression with his new Magic teammates.
  • ESPN Insider unveiled its player scouting reports and 2013-14 projections for the Orlando Magic today.
  • Bill Simmons and Jalen Rose of Grantland riff on the Magic in their NBA Preview.
  • John Denton of “Heading into his third NBA season and his second with the Magic, Harris is expanding his goals. He truly believes that he has the skill set and the supporting cast around him to make a run at getting picked to play in the NBA All-Star Game. If he can build off his 27 games with the Magic – when he scored 20 points nine times and 30 points twice – he thinks he can help the Magic make great strides and put himself in the running for an All-Star bid.”
  • NBA rookies, including Oladipo, have a chip on their shoulder, given that they’ve been labeled a weak class.
  • Matt Moore of suggests the Magic should look to move Nelson sooner rather than later because “he could hurt their quest to land in the top three of next year’s super-draft.”
  • Harris is hoping to become a more efficient player offensively.
  • Nikola Vucevic has made a name for himself back in his native land of Montenegro.
