With an aging core that includes the likes of Jameer Nelson, Hedo Turkoglu and Jason Richardson, it would be foolish not to acquire talent for the future to start the rebuilding process.
Magic owner Rich DeVos still wants to see his team stay competitive in the Eastern Conference if they do choose to ship D12’s talents elsewhere. However, with teams like the New York Knicks, Miami Heat and Boston Celtics patrolling the conference, I don’t see the Magic being successful without the dominant Howard.
As more time passes in this critical stage of the Dwight Howard fiasco, I believe the only way the Magic Front Office could convince “Superman” to stay in O-Town is to acquire another star player to be his “Jimmy Olsen.”
With a roster riddled with bad contracts, however, there are relatively few attractive trading chips that would land another dominant athlete.
Nonetheless, the Magic do indeed have a talented team whether Dwight Howard thinks so or not.
So without further ado, here is your Orlando Magic rotation from worst to first.
*Quentin Richardson, Daniel Orton, DeAndre Liggins, Larry Hughes, Justin Harper and Earl Clark will not be featured in this list due to their lack of playing time in Orlando’s first two games.
