Orlando Magic: The 10 Most Effective Lineup Combinations

On paper, the Orlando Magic appear to have a very deep and versatile team, though their recent woes would not reflect this appearance.

This December, they added to that depth and versatility by acquiring Hedo Turkoglu and Gilbert Arenas, who are both qualified to play a variety of positions.

Despite adding to their versatility, the Magic traded away some of their depth abroad, as they shipped their No. 2 big man, Marcin Gortat, to the Phoenix Suns, which has since left them lacking in terms of depth at the center position.

Though Gortat was never known for being a huge producer, his 6'11" frame did give the Magic an extra big body to put in the game while Dwight Howard recovered on the sideline. 

Regardless of the effects of the trade, Orlando still boasts a roster full of qualified ball handlers and perimeter shooters, while Dwight Howard, Hedo Turkoglu and Brandon Bass have held down the interior. Though Bass was sidelined last Monday against the Memphis Grizzlies with an ankle sprain, I took the liberty of assembling these 10 possible roster combinations, assuming that he and the rest of Orlando's current rosters are healthy and able.

Their depth has given them a variety of potential lineup combinations, but here are the 10 that I think are their best.
