The Orlando Magic intend to reach out to Frank Vogel during their search for a new head coach, Magic general manager Rob Hennigan told the Orlando Sentinel on Friday.

The Indiana Pacers announced Sunday they have waived 6-9 forward Jeremy Evans and 6-6 guard Julyan Stone. Evans played in two preseason games and did not score. Stone played in five games, scoring one point and averaging two rebounds per game.
The Toronto Raptors announced Sunday they have exercised the fourth-year team options on the Rookie Scale Contracts of forward Bruno Caboclo and centre Lucas Nogueira and the third-year team option on the Rookie Scale Contract of guard Delon Wright. The contracts for Caboclo, Nogueira and Wright are now guaranteed through the 2017-18 season. In accordance with the league’s Collective Bargaining Agreement, the Raptors had until October 31 to exercise their option on all three players. Per team policy, financial terms of the deals were not disclosed.
“Honestly, none of that stuff (the negativity) has crept in. We have to respond. Obviously the article about Draymond, we all thought it was ridiculous and kind of looking through a keyhole at somebody’s life that you don’t really know about,” said Curry, who has played with Green since he was drafted in the second round by the Warriors in 2012.
“We see every single day what goes on, what a guy like Draymond brings to the table for us, how he makes us better, how KD (Durant) does that for us, what Klay (Thompson) does for us, all the way down the list. And we appreciate everybody’s role. We appreciate what our common goal is. When we get back in the locker room, and practice, and when we’re by ourselves, the mood is pretty solid, something that I’m pretty confident will allow us to have maturity when it comes to the noise around us and how we handle it and not letting that affect how we play on the court and how we see each other and let that get in the way. I’m going to do my part in trying to lead that charge, and make sure it’s all about basketball.”
