While the league is currently enduring players moving to different teams such as Kevin Durant to the Brooklyn Nets and Jimmy Butler to the Miami Heat. Here in Orlando, the Magic were able to have both all-star Nikola Vucevic and sixth man Terrence Ross rejoin the team.
After Orlando’s playoff run was over, fans were concerned whether or not the Magic would keep both or just one or the other. Fortunately, the Magic were able to re-sign both, meaning that the same team that snuck their way into the post-season may be able to do so again.
Another positive would be that the Magic were able to sign former Trailblazer, Al-Farouq Aminu into their group of players with long wingspans. Aminu will most likely be joining the Magic as a backup forward. However, the Magic decided not to re-sign Jerian Grant. Grant was most memorable for being a guard who would often struggle to find his niche on the team.
One thing that many fans have noticed, is how the Magic have yet to add another point-guard to their squad.
On paper the team currently has players that can function as a point-guard, such as DJ Augustin, Michael Carter-Williams, Evan Fournier and Markelle Fultz. However, Augustin may not be seen as a long-term solution, Carter-Williams has yet to sign a contract for the upcoming season and Fournier has been spotty throughout the season.
This just leaves Fultz, who some project may actually be able to join the practice squad much sooner than anticipated.
