With roster changes comes a new distribution in minutes heading into the 2012-13 NBA season, and the Orlando Magic certainly experienced a few major transactions this offseason.

Now that Dwight Howard has been shipped to the Los Angeles Lakers, the Magic can finally begin a new era in the organization's successful, yet heartbreaking, history.

In a long line of superstars who have left Orlando for greener pastures (or maybe just less rainy ones), "Superman's" (or rather, "Ironman's") departure, will create a gaping hole in the team's rotation that will be nearly impossible to fill.

The Orlando Magic have a few new additions, either through the draft or the blockbuster deal, that will hopefully make the pain of losing arguably the greatest center of this decade a little less miserable for the fans. But where will new head coach Jacque Vaughn find the minutes to adequately play each of these recently obtained players?

After all, the Magic rotation has looked very similar for the last five years, and only two significant players (Ryan Anderson and Dwight Howard) have left the squad. While this will make life difficult for the rookie coach as the roster is surprisingly deep, this job isn't impossible.

In the end, the Magic, including their fans, are more worried about luck with pingpong balls, rather than the success of this year's squad.

*This slideshow will only go in-depth on the projected 12 players that will suit up every contest, barring injuries, suspension, etc.
