To elaborate on this, recently, Kyrie Irving has stated that he is interested in joining the Brooklyn Nets; however, the Nets already have a good point-guard in D’Angelo Russell. Which brings us to the question, “How does this tie in to the Orlando Magic?”
One of the rumors surrounding the Nets and Russell is how Orlando was listed as one of the teams interested in pursuing the point-guard.
Assuming that the Magic do decide to go after Russell, they may dump one or two of the mentioned guards, possibly Augustin and Grant. Allowing the team to make space for Russell.
Of course, there would still be the issue on what to do with Nikola Vucevic and Terrence Ross, since they will become free agents this upcoming summer, so you now have the issue on who do you keep and who do you let walk. Also, with the emergence of Khem Birch who has been playing phenomenally, it may be clear that other teams would show an interest in him.
Hypothetically speaking, even if the Magic were to make everything perfect and clear space for Russell, it has been stated that other teams are interested in acquiring the guard. So the Magic would have to set themselves up as a team that has something great to offer.
Obviously it is still early, not to mention this is all “what-ifs” scenarios; however, it will be interesting to see how the roster will look for next season.
