HoopsHype Victor Oladipo rumors

October 6, 2014 Updates

Oladipo suffered the injury when he landed following a play at the rim during a scrimmage Friday, but Oladipo completed the scrimmage. He was scheduled to practice on Saturday, but the team sent him to have an MRI because his knee was sore. The MRI revealed the sprain. “It’s tough,” Oladipo said a few minutes ago. “But, again, it’s a part of basketball. It happens. At the end of the day, I’ve just got to figure out how to stay close to my team and get better away from the court, whether it be watching film or watching the games or just improving myself mentally. It’s going to be huge.” Orlando Sentinel

Dante Exum considered attending college in the U.S., and he took his lone college visit to Indiana University, where he met Hoosiers star Victor Oladipo. Oladipo, who just completed his rookie season with the Magic, and Exum developed a rapport — one strong enough that Exum has said he's interested in playing for Orlando. Orlando Sentinel

Are the Magic the team that is highest on Exum? Seems that way based on mock drafts. Chad Ford: They want a point guard. They experimented with Victor Oladipo there, but preferably they get a young player that is more of a true point. Exum and Marcus Smart are the guys for them. They would've taken Smart No. 2 last year, but I think Exum has moved ahead. Lakers also really like Exum. So do the Jazz and Bucks. ESPN.com

When asked how his players remain motivated despite constant losing, Vaughn said, “The good thing is twice a month they receive something in their bank account and they’re professionals and the good thing is I’ll continue to push them. These guys want to be coached. And they want to be pushed to greatness and that’s what you tap into, and that’s what you push them toward each single day.” The consensus is the Magic won’t be down much longer. Harris, Harkless, Nikola Vucevic, and the splendid Victor Oladipo are all 23 or under, and the Magic are likely to select in the top five of this year’s fruitful draft. Boston Globe
