At this point, the math doesn’t add up to Hezonja having a starring role for Orlando in the upcoming season. The Magic have a logjam in the frontcourt, with Vucevic, Biyombo, and Ibaka expecting to play big minutes at the interior positions, causing a domino effect to the rest of their lineup. That pushes Jeff Green and Aaron Gordon down a position to the 3, even though both are most effective at the 4, which forces Fournier and Hezonja to play primarily as 2s, with Fournier likely getting most of the minutes, after signing an $85 million contract in the offseason. The presence of Elfrid Payton and Augustin means there’s not much room at the 1, leaving Hezonja with another 15–20 minute role off the bench.
In one of the most thrilling FIBA games of the decade, Croatia outlasted Italy in overtime to qualify for the 2016 Olympics in Rio. It will be the fourth time the Croatian national basketball team will complete in the Olympics. Bojan Bogdanovic posted 26 points and buried a critical 3-pointer with 1:14 left in OT to put Croatia up six. Krunoslav Simon racked up 21 points, Dario Saric recorded 18 points and 13 rebounds and Mario Hezonja dished out four assists.
