A trade to Orlando was rumored last summer before the four-team deal in which the Sixers acquired Bynum. But Magic general manager Rob Hennigan, an Orlando source said, was also skeptical that Bynum would ever be healthy enough to contribute, an Orlando source said. Bynum had appeared in 55 games or more just three times in his seven seasons. Philadelphia Inquirer

Orlando Magic general manager Rob Hennigan on Wednesday refuted reports that his team is on the verge of a trade with the Los Angeles Clippers that would involve Orlando’s Arron Afflalo and L.A.’s Eric Bledsoe as the deal’s centerpieces. “We haven’t had a drop or an ounce of communication with the Clippers for almost three weeks,” Hennigan said. “So, if we’re about to make a trade with them, I guess I missed that memo.” Orlando Sentinel

Meanwhile, ESPN reported Tuesday night that talks between the Magic and Clippers were ongoing and a deal could be reached by Thursday’s NBA Draft. Hennigan said he would be “stunned” if a deal occurred with the Clippers in the near future. Orlando Sentinel

Magic officials already have scouted the likes of Kentucky Wildcats center Nerlens Noel, Kansas Jayhawks shooting guard Ben McLemore and Michigan Wolverines point guard Trey Burke for months and months. Until now, however, the Magic and other NBA teams haven't been permitted to sit down and speak with any draft prospect. General manager Rob Hennigan and assistant general managers Scott Perry and Matt Lloyd will conduct the Magic's player interviews, which were expected to begin Wednesday night and likely will include Noel, McLemore and Burke. Each team may interview a maximum of 18 players, and each session may last a maximum of 30 minutes. Orlando Sentinel

Hedo Turkoglu, who won’t play, can sense that tonight will be his final game as a member of the Orlando Magic. The forward has played 7 ½ of his 13 NBA seasons with the Orlando Magic. But he knows there’s a good chance the team will part ways with him this offseason. “That wouldn’t surprise me at all,’’ Turkoglu said in an interview with FOX Sports Florida before the Magic’s season finale Wednesday at Miami. “It’s just the situation sometimes you’re in on the payroll… I totally understand if they want to move me. We’re in a rebuilding situation with the young guys. Sulia
