Thirty-three-year-old guard Willie Green has been mentioned as the Magic's leading buyout candidate, but Green said he has no interest in a buyout. " 'Buyout' is not really in my language," Green said. "I get paid to come in here to be professional and play hard and go out and try to help the team win. As far as I'm concerned, I'm with Orlando for the rest of the year." Orlando Sentinel

"Me personally, I'm committed to being here," Green said. "I like being here with these young guys. I like helping them. [Magic GM] Rob Hennigan and myself, we've had conversations about the way I can contribute on and off the floor. So I'm in it. I'm committed." Orlando Sentinel

With the NBA trade deadline looming on Thursday at 3 p.m., third-year Orlando Magic swingman Maurice Harkless said Wednesday that he's not focusing on the possibility of being dealt. "I'm not thinking about it," Harkless said. "I'm here, so I'm focused on practicing today. We've got a game Friday, so I'm focused on getting ready for that." Harkless indeed is a candidate to be traded before Thursday's deadline. Orlando Sentinel

Magic officials still like Harkless and believe he has potential. Still, a rumor that circulated several weeks ago that the Magic were asking for a first-round pick in potential trades for Harkless was inaccurate. Orlando Sentinel

Jacque Vaughn and his interim successor, James Borrego, have been unable and unwilling to incorporate his inside-outside scoring abilities into their simplistic offensive systems. Yahoo! Sports

The Magic will look to move little side pieces like Andrew Nicholson and Maurice Harkless, though it wouldn’t be a shocker if a front office that might be in some danger searches for something juicier. The Bulls and Spurs have assets in the cupboard, but neither has much record of in-season go-for-it deals. I could see the Bucks trying to dump Ersan Ilyasova, even if he’s the only traditional power forward left on the roster. Grantland

Orlando’s Victor Oladipo’s first dunk at the NBA Dunk Contest was incredible, but he virtually ensured himself a 50 with the style points he earned after coming to the court wearing a fake tux and singing “New York, New York.” Oladipo then threw down a 540 dunk that no one has ever seen before.
