From Denver and New York with love

Ellwood/NBAE via Getty Images Two years ago, acquiring a 2014 first round pick from the Denver Nuggets probably caused Magic fans to shrug and think, “Neat,” if they even noticed it at all in the chaos of Dwight Howard’s exit.

All eyes on Rob Hennigan

Photo by Fernando Medina/Getty Images If there is a rock star for the Magic, it’s not Jacque Vaughn, Jameer Nelson, or even Victor Oladipo. It’s GM Rob Hennigan.

Thursday’s Mini-Magic Word

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: “From Nov. 26 through Jan. 14, O’Quinn didn’t play at all in nine separate Magic games. And when he did play in other games, he usually played sparingly.
