Via Orlando Magic press release:

As a part of the Orlando Magic’s 25th anniversary season-long celebration the team will honor former Magic All-Star Tracy McGrady at the Magic’s November 1 home opening night matchup vs. the New Orleans Pelicans, tip-off set for 7 p.m. In addition to being honored at center court, McGrady will also serve as a color commentator for a portion of FOX Sports Florida’s broadcast and be featured on Magic Drive Time radio show on 740 The Game with host Dante Marchitelli on Thurs., Oct. 31 from 5:30-6:00 p.m.

“Legends’ Nights” is an on-going program which will honor former players throughout the Magic’s silver season. In addition to the Magic’s “Legends Nights”, the 2013-14 season will feature the Silver Ticket Sweepstakes and Scratch Off Promotion, special appearances, game entertainment and other events throughout the season.

Tracy McGrady, a native of nearby Auburndale, played four seasons for the Magic after signing with the team as an up-and-coming player in 2000. He quickly developed into the most lethal scorer in the NBA. His 28.1-point regular-season scoring average is the highest in Magic history. In three trips to the playoffs with the Magic he averaged 33.8 ppg., 30.8 ppg. and 31.7 ppg. for a 32.0 ppg. average in 15 playoff games. A Magic history highlight was the franchise-best 62 points he scored against the Washington Wizards on March 10, 2004.
