``It hits me every time that I wake up in the morning. It's just kind of surreal putting on this uniform, coming into this locker room and saying that you are in the NBA and you play for the Orlando Magic,'' Oladipo said on Friday. ``It's stuff that you only imagine and now it's coming true. I'm just trying to make the most of it and definitely have fun with my teammates and grow a relationship with them. I want to continue to get better as a player and a person.''

``I'm already in love with the kid's game,'' Harkless gushed, referring to the 21-year-old Oladipo. ``He goes hard, he goes really hard on the defensive end. He plays really in control and can play point guard and shooting guard. He goes hard and gets after it every day. I think he'll be good.''

``This is the time to do it, move him around and see where he can fit for us in the different positions,'' Borrego said of playing Oladipo some at point guard. ``Put him on the ball and off the ball. Guarding bigger guys and guarding point guards, this is the time to do it. This is a great opportunity to see what we have and let him go.

``He's a very competitive kid and very coachable,'' the coach said. ``He's easy to work with and a hard worker and he understands the game. I think his basketball IQ is much higher than I even anticipated. He understands the game so well and we're very happy with him.''

funny cause everyone said it was a terrible trade for you guys
you guys ended up being, easily, the winners of the trade. Howard is no longer on the Lakers, Iggy is no longer on the Nuggets, and Bynum is no longer on the Sixers lol.

Yeah, I was pissed at first because I thought we could get more, but I'm happy now.

Thats hilarious..nobody is on their teams anymore
Magic sign Victor Oladipo


The Orlando Magic on Sunday signed first-round pick Victor Oladipo, who starred later in the day in his Orlando Pro Summer League debut.

The Magic did not disclose financial terms of the contract for the former Indiana guard, who was selected second overall in the 2013 draft. Under the collective bargaining agreement, however, first-round picks sign two-year contracts, while the player's drafting team also holds options for two additional seasons.

Oladipo led the Magic past the Boston Celtics 95-88 on Sunday with 18 points, seven assists, six rebounds and five steals. He also had six turnovers.

He credited his teammates for helping him to overcome any nervousness during his professional debut.

"They definitely helped me a lot today," he said. "Without them I probably would have been all over the place and they kind of settled me down, helped me through my mistakes and just helped me be poised out there. It was fun."

2nd round pick Romero Osby had 18pts as well.
