The No. 5 pick in the NBA draft is for sale. Put it on the auction block. Hold an open house.
That's what I'm thinking if I'm the Magic after Tuesday night's NBA Draft Lottery: Trade it – at least try to trade it anyway.
General Manager Rob...

Tuesday night is the NBA Draft Lottery. It's an event you don't ever want your team to take part in, much less become a returning contestant.
It usually means your team stinks.
It always means it didn't make the playoffs.
San Antonio Spurs fans don'...

ORLANDO, Fla. — It's a good thing the Bulls are coming back to Chicago. There might be a warrant out for their arrest in Florida after they stole a game from the Magic on Sunday.
"Let's face it," Pau Gasol said after the 98-97 victory. "We got...

Wow, the Magic finally are getting a little more serious about this winning stuff. Here they are, 23 games into the season, and we haven't begun the official countdown to the draft lottery.
On the contrary, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls: The...

Talk about your big breakthroughs.
There's Einstein's theory of relativity, Richard Petty inventing the wheel, the smallpox vacine and the NFL RedZone channel.
Here's another monumental breakthrough: The Magic have suddenly become an entertaining...

As frustrating as it is to witness the Magic's rebuilding project, things could be worse. Much, much worse. To paraphrase an old W.C. Fields' barb…. all things considered, I wouldn't rather be in Philadelphia.

Orlando Magic GM Rob Hennigan called a news conference Thursday to announce the firing of head coach Jacque Vaughn.
Here's hoping that next year at this time, the Magic aren't calling another news conference to announce the firing of Hennigan himself....

Aaron Gordon doesn't consider himself a consolation prize, even if Magic fans and the rest of the basketball world might.
It's not fair to Aaron, of course, that he's considered as the fourth horse in a three-horse race.
The Magic wound up with Gordon...
