Marcin Gortat: “I’m going to be a old guy, so I don’t know if Orlando would be interested or not. But I would love to join the team back again just to wear the uniform, put the white and blue stripes again on me and be able to say I’m a Magic again and just come back home where I belong. That would definitely be a dream come true to do that for me. Whatever the team wants to do — play me, just be in the rotation or just be a bench player — I would definitely be there for the team.”
Orlando Magic Rumors
FOX Sports Florida, the exclusive television home of the Orlando Magic, today announced Lisa Leslie has joined its roster of Magic on-air talent for the remainder of the 2017-18 season. In her new role, Leslie will serve as studio analyst on select Magic Live! pre- and postgame shows. Leslie, a three-time WNBA MVP, two-time WNBA Champion, and a four-time Olympic gold medal winner, comes to FOX Sports Florida after serving as a commentator for ESPN, FOX Sports Net, Turner and NBC. Leslie made her debut during last night’s Magic Live! pregame show and will return this evening at 7:30 p.m., alongside host Paul Kennedy, as the Magic get set to battle the Milwaukee Bucks.
Josh Robbins: Aaron Gordon on being benched for being late to the team plane: “Obviously, it hurts. I want to be on the floor as much as I can — and starting. I understand that time management is crucial and being punctual is part of character. Having a high character leads into winning.”
Josh Robbins: The Magic are holding Aaron Gordon out of the starting lineup because of a violation of team rules. A source said Gordon was late arriving to the team plane in Orlando yesterday. So they’ll start Elfrid Payton, Jonathon Simmons, Evan Fournier, Mario Hezonja and Bismack Biyombo.
The Magic’s new front office isn’t eager to dump anything, so anything the Magic do will have to be meaningful. There has been a lot of talk that the Magic would like to move guard Evan Fournier, but they have yet to be offered anything that’s worth doing, according to sources.
