Orlando Magic 2016-17 Thread

Victor Oladipo needed just one day of practice to reach a conclusion about Orlando Magic rookie forward Aaron Gordon and rookie point guard Elfrid Payton.

Oladipo decided he needs to work on his lob passes, because Gordon and Payton have the ability to sprint up the floor, elevate and throw down vicious dunks.

"They're really good and they can be really, really, really good," Oladipo said.

In the days ahead, Gordon and Payton will have an opportunity to show their potential — and also the areas they need to improve. Gordon and Payton will make their professional debuts in the annual Orlando Pro Summer League, which will tip off Saturday and run through July 11.

Teams interested in Channing Frye knew it would cost much more than MLE to sign him. Magic, 20th in threes last year, need shooting.

There's a reason why Payton jumped up the draft boards so quickly in the couple weeks before the draft. You guys got a helluva steal and I think he's gonna be a great player for years to come.

Future Orlando Magic forward Channing Frye tells USAT: "I'm excited to join a great young team to grow with them to be apart of the future."

I'm going to miss Channing Frye and I'll never forget what he did for the Phoenix Suns.

A bunch of teams, including GSW, concluded early after 7/1 that Frye would get more than mid-level. Didn't expect it to be in ORL, but, hey.
