Start your day off with ‘Magic Starting 5,’ where we look at five of the NBA's biggest storylines for today, including what's going on with the Orlando Magic.
1. POOLE PARTY?
"According to Heavy, the Magic is a team to watch as a potential suitor for Poole when he reaches restricted free agency. It was also mentioned there is a 'good chance' that Golden State 'is not going to match.'"
2. PATRICK EWING MAKES MAGIC HISTORY
"Ewing will always be remembered for his Hall-of-Fame career in New York, where he accumulated 11 All-Star appearances, but he will forever own this unique piece of Magic history with him as well."
3. ORLANDO WIN TOTAL
"Given the Orlando Magic's current rebuilding phase, finishing 22-60 last season did not come as much of a surprise. And it isn't a surprise that oddsmakers don't feel optimistic about the Magic finishing much better next season."
