"It messes up my whole year when the Lakers are not successful" - Magic

Eric Pincus

Magic said last year Laker players didn't know their roles - which would have made D'Antoni cackle had he heard that comment

Eric Pincus

Going over some audio from Tues - Magic talked up the Lin/Randle combo as the 2nd unit behind possible starters Nash/Boozer

Eric Pincus

Magic "[Ed] Davis is going to be excellent - the energy that he brings" - "I think the rookie [Randle] is going to blossom under Byron"

Eric Pincus

Magic Johnson - "I'm happy that Boozer is here. We needed some toughness, and he's going to provide that."

Gary Lee

If you missed this, Magic said the Lakers “chose right guy” in Byron Scott. Can’t wait for his tweets this season. lakersnation.com/magic-johnson-…

Article on the Magic bringing Peyton Siva to camp and intending to allocate him to the D-League: ht.ly/zJhxB

Report: Magic to bring Peyton Siva to training camp, assign him to D-League sbnation.com/e/5714002

John Denton

#Magic F @Tobias Harris said he's still 235 lbs, but he is much leaner and has plenty of added muscle. That strength helped him in post on Tues.

Josh Robbins

Since Siva will be waived before the reg. season starts, none of the current 15 Magic players under contract will have to be waived.

Josh Robbins

H/T to @Marc J. Spears for first reporting the Magic's agreement with Peyton Siva.

Josh Robbins

Peyton Siva will be brought to Magic camp on a non-guaranteed contract. Magic then will send him to Erie of the D-League.

Vincent Goodwill

Former Piston Peyton Siva has found a home with the Orlando Magic, per a source

Marc J. Spears

Peyton Siva has agreed to terms with the Orlando Magic, a source told Yahoo Sports.

Magic: "I want the Lakers to win. It messes up my whole year when the Lakers are not successful. The last couple years have been so bad."

Arash Markazi

Magic and Byron Scott have been working out for the past five months. Magic said he already told Byron what he thought went wrong last year.

Tommy Beer

The NBA is such a different game compared to Magic’s heyday…

Gary Lee

We all know how Magic felt about Mike D’Antoni via Twitter, but says the Lakers “chose right guy” in Byron Scott. lakersnation.com/magic-johnson-…

Dave McMenamin

Magic Johnson asked about the Sterling/Clippers decision: "What's my reaction? I'm going to let you see it:

Eric Pincus

Magic said he spoke to Pau Gasol before the Chicago decision and Pau was having a difficult time getting over the hurt of last year

Bill Oram

Asked what his reaction to Sterling ruling was, Magic Johnson said, "I'm going to let you see it." Then a big, big toothy grin.

Eric Pincus

Magic also said after last year he doesn't need to see another Laker three pointer

Eric Pincus

Lakers are the number one team in Los Angeles - Dodgers are second - Dodgers owner Magic Johnson

AC Green

I'll never discourage a child's dream, even when they tell me -I'm going to be better than Magic, Jordan, and LeBron http://t.co/KR4DSb4VMJ

Dave McMenamin

Magic Johnson just lobbied for Byron to hire Mychal Cooper as one of his assistants. Coop is currently coaching the WNBA's ATL Dream
