Despite the revamped roster, Orlando Magic head coach Jacque Vaughn still has a few solid lineups to use at his disposal. The absence of Dwight Howard will almost certainly hurt next year's win total, but that doesn't mean this team can't be competitive.
In fact, the Orlando Magic may have one of the deepest rosters in the entire Association. Before anyone blows up the comment section, the fact that the team is projected to have a bench core of Al Harrington, Moe Harkless, Andrew Nicholson, Kyle O'Quinn, J.J. Redick, Quentin Richardson, Ish Smith and Nikola Vujevic is pretty remarkable, to say the least.
This team will most likely not contend for a playoff berth, but there is no denying this team has the tools to upset some elite opponents. The team will most likely battle consistency issues, as the roster is quite young, but the organization has some quality talent.
Losing Howard is a big, albeit necessary, blow, but the franchise is headed in the right direction.
