Way too early draft talk

Plot Twist: It's never too early to talk about the draft. Well, it is somewhat early. But let's have some casual draft discussion anyway. I don't think much is truly settled in 2013. There is no...

Jacque Vaughn interviewed at Wednesday's practice

1

Nice stuff on Harkless. Interesting comments regarding the offense and "long twos". Seems like the shot is intentionally a part of the Magic's offense. Seemingly this means that Davis and Vucevic are being told to take those shots when available.

Scoring Efficiency

I created a new advanced stat because I (like most people) hate TS%. So I made a stat that measured what TS% is supposed to measure only it kind of works. I call it "Scoring Efficiency" and it is a...

Howard still has an agent, won't extend with LA, according to report.

Report out of Howard's camp says that he is not going to extend with any club and this comes from Fegan who is apparently still Howard's agent.

Grant Hill (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻

According to this article Otis Smith ran Grant Hill out of town for no real reason. Meaning Magic fans have been booing Otis Smith by proxy for years now. Accepted.

Magic battling fatigue and identity crisis

3

"It seems like the Magic have manufactured upside from a roster that seemingly had none, and could coalesce into an efficient squad that features the contributions from its youngest players while veterans fill in the gaps. These seem like mundane observations, but when you consider the players who are giving the Magic a spark right now, you realize the organizational rift that will have to be repaired if the Magic want a shot at contending now or keeping Dwight Howard in pinstripes. Put simply: the players giving the Magic a prayer right now are players developed by Stan Van Gundy and the Magic organization, while the players who seem stuck in molasses are endemic of the strategy the team has pursued the past two seasons and has said it will pursue in the future. If the Magic continue to devote resources to veteran retreads who don’t fit their team, then the fresh legs and minds which might otherwise have weathered the upcoming fatigue will fail just the same."

Tracy McGrady, welcome back to the family.

"I can’t see him coming here," McGrady told Yahoo! Sports while playing a road game in the Nets arena. "If it’s just Dwight and D-Will, he’s better off just staying in Orlando. You want to go to a team that’s championship caliber, and just him and D-Will won’t get it done. There’s got to be other pieces around to make it look sweet." - T-Mac Tracy, displaying a keen basketball intellect and winning back the hearts of Orlandoans.

$Dwight's Contract$

I thought it might be helpful to show how much money Dwight stands to lose by not re-signing / maintaining his Bird Rights. Essentially, by losing his Bird Rights he forfeits 3% of his salary over...

Mavs give Corey Brewer and Rudy Fernandez to the Nuggets.

5

Hmmm... I mean I know a major part of this is that the Nuggets has the cap space to take on those contracts. But if the Mavs were just giving them away I wouldn't have minded making a play for either of those players. Otis. Do things.

Nets delusional, set deadline anyway.

4

The Nets have set a deadline for the Magic. One week to trade Dwight Howard for Brook Lopez or else. Or else what? Or else they sign Nene using up all of their cap space making it so they can't absorb Hedo Turkoglu's contract and also can't sign Howard next summer. I guess. In related news the Nets are kind of dumb.
