Orlando Magic Rumors
“The 28th name was supposed to be Victor Oladipo but he has not yet decided and we don’t want to put his name out before his decision,” Tijjani told the local media. “He has been in training camp with the US national team and he has not made the team. So, sometimes decisions can be very tough when it comes to that.”
The Orlando Magic have decided who will represent them at the NBA Draft Lottery on May 17 in Manhattan. Franchise co-founder Pat Williams will sit in the room where pingpong balls will be drawn, and general manager Rob Hennigan will sit on stage when the lottery results are revealed on TV, a Magic spokesman said.
Keith Appling, a point guard for the Orlando Magic’s NBA Development League affiliate, is scheduled to be arraigned this afternoon in Dearborn, Mich., after the Wayne County prosecutor charged him with carrying a concealed weapon, a felony; possession of a loaded firearm in a vehicle, a misdemeanor; and possession of marijuana, a misdemeanor.
The Rockets will have a comprehensive list of coaches to view whenever the season ends. Bickerstaff, who remains in good standing with management, will be part of that conversation. Alexander and Morey believe that Harden will play a role in helping to hire a coach and potentially sign free agents. Howard is not expected to have a role. It’s expected that he will become a free agent and seek a new team. Orlando, Milwaukee, Portland and Charlotte are the favorites.
