Here is an incomplete list of moves he would try to make: Trade Tomas Satoransky to the Nets for himself so that he could be his own starting point guard for the Bulls. Sign with Klutch Sports in an attempt to curry enough favor for Rich Paul to convince Chicago-native Anthony Davis to join the Bulls in an offseason sign-and-trade. Thaddeus Young, Cristiano Felicio, Wendell Carter Jr. and a first-round pick would go to the Lakers. Use a sweetener to dump Luke Kornet and Ryan Arcidiacano in order to create the cap space to sign Moe Harkless. Sign another 3-and-D veteran, ideally Terrence Ross or Marcus Morris. Where that cap space comes from is unclear.
The second issue is Orlando’s lack of shooting, which manifests in a league-worst 3-point percentage: a ghastly 28.5 percent. More than bad luck, this result stems from a roster built with poor shooters. Using each player’s career 3-point performance before this season to predict how many 3s they’d expect to have made so far, Orlando’s “expected” 3-point percentage so far would be 33.5 percent—certainly better than where they sit now, but still a mark that would rank near the bottom of the league. Players like Terrence Ross and Vucevic have started cold from deep, but when half of the guard rotation is Markelle Fultz and Michael Carter-Williams, it’s hard to expect too many long-range fireworks.
John Denton: How much has the stature of the @Orlando Magic risen in the eyes of free agents? G Terrence Ross said he had contract offers and or serious interest from @Los Angeles Lakers, @Utah Jazz, @Dallas Mavericks, @Pacers & @SacramentoKings, but he said he never considered leaving his “home” of Orlando.
Storyline: Terrence Ross Free Agency
On Tuesday, the Magic took several steps to ensure that three key players could be back with the team next season. The actions taken on Tuesday – picking up the third-year option on Wes Iwundu’s contract and making qualifying contract offers to center Khem Birch and forward Amile Jefferson – could shed some light on the Magic’s aggressive approach in trying to retain future unrestricted free agents Nikola Vucevic and Terrence Ross. Again, the goal is to try and keep the entire team together as much as possible going forward.
Center Nikola Vucevic and Ross were two of the Magic’s most integral players this past season, but the team has no guarantees Vucevic or Ross will be back with the Magic in 2019-20. Vucevic will become an unrestricted free agent on June 30, just as Ross will. Therefore, some draft forecasters have predicted Orlando will draft for immediate need in case Vucevic and/or Ross do not return. Weltman shot down that notion Monday, saying Vucevic’s and Ross’ upcoming free agencies would not impact the Magic’s draft strategy.
“I don’t think that we would look at drafting a rookie and expecting that he’s going to make a huge dent on our team (in his) first year,” Weltman said. “I think that you always hope that that could be the case, but you can never plan for that. And I think that especially the way the draft is trending, with players coming out earlier, that it becomes more difficult to expect that a rookie would actually come in and make a serious imprint (in) Year 1. So, we’re fine with being patient. We’re fine with developing a young player who we believe in and sticking with him.”
This Friday, Men in Black: International, a spinoff from the Men in Black film series, hits theaters nationwide. Thanks to Terrence Ross, 50 kids from Parramore’s New Image Youth Center (NIYC) were able to watch the fourth installment of the science fiction franchise even earlier. Just a few weeks after wrapping up the best season of his career – averaging 15.1 points while making 217 3-pointers, the most by anyone in league history who didn’t start in a single game – Ross hosted a private screening of the movie for the children at the Cobb Plaza Cinema Café in downtown Orlando. He also treated them to popcorn, drinks, a Magic goody bag and transportation to and from the theater.
Nikola Vucevic and Terrence Ross are two of the most experienced players on the roster, and they’re two of the biggest reasons why the team has played as well as it has. Will the team attempt to keep them both when they become unrestricted free agents this summer? Jeff Weltman: There’s a lot of season left to be played, and this isn’t really the appropriate time for us to be having that discussion. Obviously, they’ve had very good seasons. They’re good players. They’re good people. I think they like it here. They’re an important part of our team.

Jeff Weltman on Vucevic and Ross’ free agencies, continued: They have decisions to make. We have decisions to make. That stuff comes around in July, and we’ll plan and strategize for that at the appropriate time. Right now, we’re more focused on making the playoffs and finishing the season strongly. But, obviously, those guys have been very good for us, and I think that they’re having very good seasons. They both enjoy, I think, the team and our coach and Orlando. But there’s a lot of real estate between all of those points and coming to an agreement. So we’ll see how all that evolves, but that’s really more for a postseason discussion.
Two nights after scoring 11 of his 16 points in the fourth quarter of a Magic rally past Golden State, Ross took things to another level completely on Saturday in Indiana. Despite having just eight points through three quarters and missing five of his first six tries from 3-point range, Ross poured in 16 of his 23 in the fourth quarter as Orlando surged past Indiana, 117-112, before a stunned crowd at BankersLife Fieldhouse. Ross said everything he has endured in his NBA career – bouts of maddening inconsistency; a jaw-dropping 51-point game that raised expectations; a mid-season trade to Orlando in 2017; and last season’s serious knee injury – prepared him for the role he now has for Orlando. “It’s different and it’s a change, really,’’ Ross said. “For years, I was just kind of a role player down the stretch and not really a go-to scorer. But, now with this, it’s a different chapter in my career.’’
