Magic point guard Elfrid Payton just completed his second NBA season and could be one of the players who benefits most from the coaching change. Vogel loves defensive-minded players and wants Orlando to run an up-tempo offense, so Payton should thrive. In a phone interview with Basketball Insiders, Payton discussed the Vogel hire and more. “I’m pretty excited,” Payton said of Vogel coaching the Magic. “I trust Rob, so whatever he’s with, I’m with. … Coach and I spoke briefly. Everybody [on the team] seems pretty excited about the hire.”
Storyline: Orlando Magic Coach
Skiles’ prints are gone, permanently, the result of his abrupt resignation on Thursday. Immediately, questions surfaced about a possible power struggle with general manager Rob Hennigan. Skiles wasn’t enamored with some of Orlando’s young talent, in particular point guard Elfrid Payton, league sources told The Vertical. More broadly, Skiles had grown increasingly disenchanted with the attitudes of the modern NBA player, league sources said, with one describing Skiles in the final months of the season as “miserable.”
Storyline: Orlando Magic Coach
Evan Fournier, Aaron Gordon, Mario Hezonja, Victor Oladipo, Elfrid Payton and Nik Vucevic aren’t going anywhere. The Orlando Magic will not trade any member of their young nucleus before this season’s NBA trade deadline expires on Thursday afternoon, general manager Rob Hennigan told the Orlando Sentinel tonight.
