Assistant General Manager Dave Twardzik told Buamann “there is a chance” Orlando could have him on the roster next season. The Magic believe Vazquez signed a one-year deal this year with plans of potentially coming over after the lockout. However, a source has informed ESPN Florida Vazquez is likely simply using the threat of playing in the NBA to get another new deal in Spain. Vazquez, Orlando’s first round draft pick back in 2005, currently plays for FC Barcelona Regal and is averaging 4.2 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.1 blocks per game. ESPN.com

Rubio thinks Vázquez can help the Magic if Vázquez decides to sign with the Magic when his contract with Barçelona ends after this season. "He's physically ready to come here [and play in the NBA]," Rubio said of the 6-foot-10 big man. "I played with him a couple of years in Barçelona, and it's easy to play with him because he doesn't need the ball. He's a worker. He's going to fight for every rebound. He's going to fight every possession. And you can throw the ball in there, and he's going to catch it and throw it down." Orlando Sentinel
