Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: “Plenty of intrigue surrounds tonight’s Orlando Magic preseason finale, but the competition for spots on the season-opening Magic roster is not included in that mix.

Tuesday’s Magic Word

Mike Bianchi of the Orlando Sentinel: “Say what you will about the Magic, but one thing you can never say is they haven’t been willing to change and do what it takes to win.

Monday’s Magic Word

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: “The Magic entered Sunday’s exhibition tired. After practices and scrimmages on Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday, the team held a one-hour, 50-minute shootaround Sunday morning at AmericanAirlines Arena.

Thursday’s Magic Word

John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com: “To those who witnessed the Orlando Magic’s scrimmage on Thursday, Dwight Howard was his usual dominant self.

Wednesday’s Magic Word

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: “For now, it appears that the Orlando Magic front office has decided there’s no reason to rush into trading Dwight Howard, because the same offers — and perhaps better ones — likely still will be available right up until the March 15 NBA trade deadline. And perhaps Howard’s thinking …
