Frank Vogel Rumors

Isaac, who played one season at FSU and just turned 20 years old, already has made a strong first impression on Vogel. “For me, anything he does on the offensive end is gravy, and he’s got a good feel [there] on the offensive end,” Vogel said. “But he is NBA-ready to come in and impact our team on the defensive end right now, and he’s showing it every time we see him out there [with] his length at the rim [and] his ability to guard on the perimeter. It’s beyond his years.”
You’ve never experienced many seasons like last year, making the playoffs five times in your six years in the NBA prior to coming to Orlando. How long did it take you to get over struggling and missing the playoffs? COACH VOGEL: “I still haven’t gotten over it. I don’t want to do that again and I’m not going to do that again. We’ve got to have a better year this year. The whole summer has been spent on the upcoming season and getting ready for the job that we have in front of us. I’m excited about it.’’
COACH VOGEL: “It can be (a playoff team), but we’ve got a lot to do and we’ve got our work cut out for us. We’ve got to have a lot of improvement from within. That’s what a lot of this season is going to be about because that’s the way we’re set up as an organization right now. We won 29 games last year, so it can’t be small improvements if we expect to make the playoffs. We’ve got to have some dramatic improvements.’’
