“Yeah, it’s going to be exciting,” he said. “Anytime you’re a free agent it’s exciting. There’s a lot of great players who are going to be out there and it’s going to be fun to see where guys end up. It will be good to see where my situation leads me.” Could it lead him back to Madison Square Garden? “Like I said, we’ll see,” he said. “Free agency isn’t until July and when that time comes I should be able to discuss things like that.” The Knicks Blog

“For now I’m just going to continue to work out, continue to get better and let everything handle itself,” Harris told SNY.tv and The Knicks Blog at the NBA Draft Combine in Chicago where he is doing some broadcast work for ESPN. “We’ll see how it plays out,” Harris added. “You never know what could happen but at the same time I’m a restricted free agent so it’s pretty much in their hands to make the call.” The Knicks Blog

While Chicago coach Tom Thibodeau is the leader in the Orlando Magic vacant coaching clubhouse, Scott Skiles and Scott Brooks are still in contention. I’m hearing the Magic job is Thibodeau’s if he so desires, although some basketball insiders are speculating New Orleans could be Thibodeau’s preferred landing spot. Skiles hasn’t coached since being jettisoned by the Bucks in January of 2013, but has a huge fan in Richard DeVos, the Magic owner. Racine Journal-Times

The Magic have made a critical decision that could alter the 2015-16 season. What, they've named a new head coach? Nah. This is bigger, much bigger: They will station good-luck charm Pat Williams in the room closer to the actual ping-pong balls for the NBA Draft Lottery on May 19 in New York. Williams has won three previous lotteries with Orlando — the last one coming in 2004 (Dwight Howard.) Orlando Sentinel

Gordon will play for the Magic’s Orlando Pro Summer League team in early July. He’ll continue to work with Dave Love, the shooting coach, and team officials expect Gordon will be among the team’s most diligent workers this offseason. It would be smart to be patient with Gordon. The 2015-16 season will be Gordon’s Age-20 season. “There’s definitely improvement needed,” Gordon said. “But there’s no ceiling for me, and I can just mold into any shape or form that I want.” Orlando Sentinel

Although he’ll turn 34 years old on July 28, Green wants to continue playing. "I feel like I still have a good maybe three or four years — who knows? — or even more,” he said. “It’s no secret that I met with [GM] Rob [Hennigan] and I met with the coaches and stuff here, and I expressed to them that I’m definitely open to being back here in Orlando,” Green said. “I like the foundation that the team has. I like our young fellas, and I think I can help them on and off the floor. So if the possibility is open, then I’m definitely open to exploring it.” Orlando Sentinel


Two dominant big men and a couple of flashy perimeter players top the Magic's list.
