Look for Hammond to shuffle the deck now that he’s the new Magic GM. NBA officials said Hammond has been working the phones, trying to move point guard Elfrid Payton and veteran centers Nikola Vucevic and Bismack Biyombo. If Hammond is successful in moving Payton, it will likely impact the Magic’s draft plans. The consensus among NBA officials is the Magic will draft Florida State forward Jonathan Isaac with the sixth overall selection. However, if Payton is moved, the Magic may change plans at select North Carolina State point guard Dennis Smith.
Storyline: Bismack Biyombo Trade?
Fox is undersized at 6-3 and 169 pounds. And he shot just 24.6 percent on three-pointers last season. “In today’s NBA if you are a point guard and you can’t shoot, it’s scary,” Vinokurov said. “Look at Emmanuel Mudiay and Elfrid Payton and the fact that these guys can’t make a three-point shot, and guards can kind of sag off of them. It takes away from what you want to do. “So, if De’Aaron Fox can’t shoot, he better be the fastest and most explosive guy in the league. If not, he’s going to have struggles.”
“It’s ok,” Saric said after seeing a photo of the whiteboard. “Every team got rights to think about their future, to put it on board. But to comment, I don’t have something. It’s ok. To me, you are doing good if they have you on [their] mind like an option.” The irony is that Magic once had the rights to Saric. In the 2014 draft, the Sixers used the 10th overall pick on Louisiana-Lafayette point guard Elfrid Payton. Two picks later, the Magic drafted Saric. Then the Sixers traded Payton to the Magic for Saric, a 2017 first-round pick and a 2015 second-round selection.
