Great pull. Magic had a better series tho RT @noahtrister: Big Game James Worthy shot 7/18 in Game 1 of the 1988 Finals. Went on to win MVP.

Ben Golliver

Magic avoid potential pain in 2015 & beyond w/ reported rookie extension for Nikola Vucevic bit.ly/1Fzy2Qx http://t.co/bedSQrhcaw

Evan Dunlap

Biggest thing about the Vučević news: Magic still have the five-year designated player extension in their pockets.

Marc J. Spears

Sources: Center Nikola Vucevic agrees to $54M extension with Magic. yhoo.it/1tbxhYD/s/2Btk #NBA #Magic

Derek Bodner

Examining effectiveness of the #sixers vs #magic rebuilds in 5 years will be fascinating. Similar situations, but very different execution

Adi Joseph

Such a steal. RT @Jeff Zillgitt: Base on Vucevic's deal with Magic is 4 years, $48M, I've been told, with incentives that could push to $53M.

Jeff Zillgitt

Base salary on Nik Vucevic's deal with Magic is four years, $48 million, I've been told, with incentives that could push amount to $53M.

Brian Schmitz

Pure coincidence, but news breaks on Magic C Nik Vucevic's $53 mill ext. as DHoward's team rolls into ORL. Nik arrived in 2012 Dwight trade.

Brian Schmitz

Per Sentinel's Josh Robbins, Magic extend Nik Vucevic 4 yrs, $53 mill or $13.25 mill per season. Wow.

Kurt Helin

Report: Magic, Nikola Vucevic agree to 4-year contract extension dlvr.it/7H1lr9

Ryan Wolstat

So, Vucevic gets 4 years at $13.5M/season from Magic. Will be a comparable for Valanciunas, who likely gets more.

Steve Kyler

Magic GM Rob Hennigan was pretty clear at media day that reaching a deal with Vucevic & Harris were priorities - Harris deal will be harder

Jorge Sierra

Rumors: Magic giving center a contract extension? bit.ly/1hKUSdo

Rick Bonnell

Per @Marc J. Spears Nik Vucevic gets 4-year, $53 million extension from Magic. I repeat: Sooner or later Kemba Walker is gonna get paid!

Tom Moore

#Sixers still practicing at the magic hour.

Jeff McDonald

The Magic Johnson award, btw, is meant to signify a star-caliber player who goes above and beyond in cooperation with the media.

Jeff McDonald

Seven minutes of Manu after lengthy NBA meeting, a night after going 1 for 11. How this guy has never won the Magic Johnson award escapes me

John Denton

I will be talking @Orlando Magic basketball on Magic Drive Time w/ @DanteMagic tonight from 5:30-6 pm on 740 AM. Always a well-done show!!!

Raul Barrigon

In the 80's, if one of the two best players went down (Bird&Magic), League would enter disaster mode. Nowadays, you can still be excited.

Josh Robbins

For the second consecutive season, the Magic won't formally name team captains.

Dennis Scott

More work! Preview shows Bobcats oops Hornets and Magic..#Nbatv Smitty and Jared! instagram.com/p/uatQyHABp0/

Jonathan Feigen

Roughly. blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket… MT @Bostonnnnnn: @Jonathan Feigen do rockets take the Heat preseason game semi serious and rest up vs Magic?

Tom Moore

#Sixers shot 2-for-15 from 3-point land in first half after going 3-for-15 Saturday vs. Magic. Down 7 (49-42) to #Nets.

Josh Robbins

Magic notebook: Victor Oladipo's availability for the season opener remains unclear: ht.ly/D4lpA

John Denton

Check out facial expression for @Elfrid Payton when he sees 8yr old fan Dylan Smith dribble in @Orlando Magic Open Practice http://t.co/GOfvEvIZfC

Josh Robbins

My guess -- guess -- is the Magic will be conservative with Victor Oladipo's return. It's not worth rushing him back too soon.

Josh Robbins

Magic won't put timetables on when VOladipo & CFrye will return. But I'd be beyond shocked if Frye is ready for the opener.

John Denton

After going through stretching, sprints & dunks, @Orlando Magic G @Victor Oladipo is held out of scrimmaging. He's riding a bike to stay loose.

Josh Robbins

Well, the first 12 minutes of the #Magic open practice were spent with players stretching and jogging.

John Denton

Nice crowd on hand for @Orlando Magic Open Practice at the Amway Center. http://t.co/9m82ThB98p

Josh Robbins

Maybe 800 people inside Amway Center, with 10 minutes until the Magic begin their open practice.

Evan Dunlap

Magic announce that Dante and Galante will return this week.

Josh Robbins

An obvious point, but the Magic will pick up their 15-16 options on Oladipo, Fournier, Harkless & Nicholson before the 10/31 deadline

David Locke

Last 10 quarters Lakers have been outscored by 90 points. Missing Steve Nash, Jeremy Lin, Nick Young, Ryan Kelly and Magic Johnson & crew

Bill Oram

Wayne Ellington has to play point guard because Steve Nash, Jeremy Lin and Keith Appling are hurt and Magic Johnson is retired.

Josh Robbins

Magic guard Willie Green & Magic asst GM Scott Perry share a mutual respect going back to the 90s: ht.ly/D08NM

Jeff Wade

Features by @townbrad are always great and today's piece on @Bannyrooster28 is must-read. Banister will one day walk out of magic cornfield.

Derek Bodner

#Sixers hold off #Magic in Allentown 95-84. Drew Gordon led the way with 16 points. sbnation.com/e/6766204
