The Orlando Magic have the NBA's second-highest payroll, but when you break down the entire Magic roster, you quickly learn that high payrolls do not always translate to great teams. 

The Magic are in a bind with multiple bad contracts on their team (Gilbert Arenas, Hedo Turkoglu), making it nearly impossible to bring in new help for Dwight Howard. If the Magic do not find a way to shake up this roster and show Dwight Howard he can win a title in Orlando, Superman could take his talents elsewhere. 

Regardless of some of the bad contracts on the Orlando roster, they do have some up-and-coming talent mixed in with a few young draft picks.

It will be interesting to see how things play out for Orlando over the next year—but for now, here is your 2011-12 Orlando Magic roster from worst to first.

*NOTE, Jason Richardson is not listed as he is an unrestricted free agent heading into the season.
