My thoughts were 2 months ago, and we all agreed, that Orlando needed big men, but now since we have 4 Power fowards, and 5 Centers plus some can play both, well I think our big man problems are pretty much solved. And when did Orlando sign Jabari? GREAT SIGN BY THAT MAGIC right there, Jabari is a big young athletic big man we have been looking for, not a great player but I think he can come in and block a few shots and get some tough rebounds for us! But the tables have turned though, now we need a SG, we only have Tracy as a true SG, maybe Sasser can come in a play is but he doesn't have a good jump shot, and Miller is to slow to play it. But all and all, it looked real bad for the Magic over the summer, but I think they drafted very solid and got some good big men in here with Kemp, Smith, Oyedeji!!!! Along with good big men in the draft.

Good Job- Orlando Magic Front Office:yes:

Last sign I think we need to make, since there are not many good SG left, I say we take a shot at Oscar Torres, he is a big 6-6 210 guard, good jump shot, and is agile with upside, but he might be to talented to sit on the bench. So if that doesn't work out I say sign Derrick Dial, small but is athletic enough to guard SG while Tracy rests and Miller or Sasser are in foul trouble. Not a giant sign if they do it but a very solid one, Mitchell Butler would be a option as well.

We need health most of all.

Got the talent and now some big man depth.. just need healthy players.

I like the fact we've got Humphrey, Jabari Smith, Oyedeji, and Hunter.. all these guys are athletic as hell and all 4 are very young... even if two of them play well, we are in good shape.

I think Oyedeji will be starting at PF by mid-season. We need to keep this guy around. He could be at Ben Wallace level in a year or two.

And I think Kemp is gonna have a strong season.

I cant believe the moron at CNNSI said Orlando's frontcourt is worse than last year. That isnt even possible.
