Orlando Magic Rumors
The Orlando Magic are likely to choose the location for their Florida-based NBA Development League affiliate within a month, Magic CEO Alex Martins told the Orlando Sentinel. The Magic are negotiating with two finalists: Silver Spurs Arena in Kissimmee and The Lakeland Center in Lakeland. Martins said the Magic hope to decide “within the next 30 days.”
Similar to when Orlando was horrified by the mass murders at the Pulse nightclub in June and then proud of how the city bonded together to unite as one, there figures to be a wide range of powerful emotions tonight at the Amway Center. Prior to the regular-season-opener against the rival Miami Heat, the Orlando Magic will remember the 49 victims of the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history and honor the first-responders who prevented further loss of life with a series of tributes.
When asked what made him comfortable being managed by his sister, Aaron Gordon had a long list. “Her credentials alone. Where she graduated from. What she’s into academically. How capable she is as an individual. The extension of her love for me. And then basically, me being naïve coming into the NBA at 18 years old. “I’m a little bit more mature than the average 20-year-old. But that doesn’t really mean nothing.”
Elise Gordon is currently applying to business school with plans of earning a master’s degree in business. She also is working as a legal assistant for BDA Sports, an agency that represents her brothers. Despite being back home now in San Jose, she says she’s “always here to help” her brother, who now has a “strong foundation.” “Although we are no longer living together and I am taking more of a long-distance position, we’re still in close contact and I’m still working with the agency,” Elise Gordon said. “The time we spent together provided us both with an amazing experience and our personal relationship has never been stronger.”
