Orlando Magic Rumors
When the Raptors face adversity, they can turn to their superstar, Leonard, or to their ascendant star, Pascal Siakam. “It’s not just Kawhi, actually,” Magic swingman Evan Fournier said. “But every time we made a run, he came right back at us with a big play — a 3, offensive rebound, steal — and we could never gain momentum.”
It will also frustrate teams looking for a versatile point guard in his prime, hoping that Holiday would be on the block. League sources say the Suns are considered a top contender should Holiday be made available, the ideal fit for a team badly in need of a multifaceted veteran at the point. But Orlando would have interest, too, as would Chicago – though Holiday’s brother, Justin, did not have a sterling experience with the Bulls this season before being traded to the Grizzlies.
If no one knows what’s going on, it’s likely that Jeanie Buss has reached out to Bryant. A source says Kobe’s importance to Jeanie explains why Pelinka, whom Magic gored, remains in place with enhanced powers and no thought of replacing him…. As for any hope Bryant will ride to the rescue, he’s not one to agonize about decisions. If he had any interest in taking over, we would have heard about it by now.
