One hopes Nik Vučević is more Rony Seikaly than Ike Austin.

Josh Robbins

MT @Jonathan Feigen: Both teams going with starters to begin 2nd half. Think a full 8 minutes more would mean lots of Rockets rest in ORL

Tobias Harris

Congrats to the bro @Nikola Vucevic !!!!!!!!!!!

Evan Dunlap

Vučević will get ~ $10 million more total than DeAndre Jordan got on 2011 offer sheet, $8M more than Larry Sanders did last yr

Evan Dunlap

Biggest thing about the Vučević news: Magic still have the five-year designated player extension in their pockets.

Peyton Siva

Yeah my little guys hope they are well RT @MoreSkeesPlease: @Peyton Siva Remember Aiden? The ... tmi.me/1eOAs1

Brian Schmitz

Dwight to Nik: Pricey for center who doesn't block shots or intimidate, but ORL couldn't afford to lose a different kind of man in middle.

Brian Schmitz

Pure coincidence, but news breaks on Magic C Nik Vucevic's $53 mill ext. as DHoward's team rolls into ORL. Nik arrived in 2012 Dwight trade.

Brian Schmitz

Per Sentinel's Josh Robbins, Magic extend Nik Vucevic 4 yrs, $53 mill or $13.25 mill per season. Wow.

Mary Stevens

I am currently hosting my weekly chat. Drop any questions you have about the #Magic or the NBA here: basketballinsiders.com/chat/nba-chat-…

Josh Robbins

But, to reiterate, the 4-year, $53 million structure is done. Plus, there are no opt-outs in the deal.

Josh Robbins

Still to be ironed out: whether Yr 1 begins at $11.25 mill & rises by 7.5% to reach $53 mill. Or starts higher & then decreases to = $53m.

Mary Stevens

The Magic have agreed on four-year, $53 million extension with Nikola Vucevic, per @Marc J. Spears.

Moe Harkless

Vooooooooooooch! !! Happy for my man! Congrats big fella @Nikola Vucevic

Tobias Harris

Thank you fans for coming out tonight, we appreciate you all and are working for a great year! #PureMagic

Josh Robbins

My guess -- guess -- is the Magic will be conservative with Victor Oladipo's return. It's not worth rushing him back too soon.

David Baumann

#FSU's Jimbo Fisher dictating what can be asked & what can't just pissed me the hell off. Call in: 407-774-0810 LIVE: tunein.com/radio/810-CBS-…

Josh Robbins

Magic won't put timetables on when VOladipo & CFrye will return. But I'd be beyond shocked if Frye is ready for the opener.

Evan Fournier

Thanks to all the fans that showed up tonight!!!

David Baumann

Next on Baumann & Big Joe, @Morgan_Moriarty, who covers the #Gators, joins us to discuss Will Muschamp's situation: tunein.com/radio/810-CBS-…

John Denton

After going through stretching, sprints & dunks, @Orlando Magic G @Victor Oladipo is held out of scrimmaging. He's riding a bike to stay loose.

Josh Robbins

Victor Oladipo is sitting out the latest portion of the practice, which features some light work in transition.

Josh Robbins

The highlights so far have been dunks by Aaron Gordon, Victor Oladipo and Willie Green.

Josh Robbins

Victor Oladipo, with a brace on his knee, is participating so far. Channing Frye (knee) is not participating.

Josh Robbins

Well, the first 12 minutes of the #Magic open practice were spent with players stretching and jogging.

John Denton

Nice crowd on hand for @Orlando Magic Open Practice at the Amway Center. http://t.co/9m82ThB98p

Josh Robbins

Maybe 800 people inside Amway Center, with 10 minutes until the Magic begin their open practice.

ESPN justifies hack job on Kobe by saying he turned down interview through Lakers spokesman. Really? Leave L.A. reporters to now ask him.

Brian Schmitz

ESPN's piece on Kobe Bryant "destroying" Lakers one-sided. It can't find him before/after a preseason game? Gutless. es.pn/1omRefb
