The Orlando Magic are far removed from the days of Shaquille O'Neal, Penny Hardaway and even Dwight Howard. As the third-worst team in the Eastern Conference, the Magic must scramble to figure out the next step in what has become a downward spiral of disappointments. They have started in the right direction with drafting Victor Oladipo, but this offseason will be another defining time for Orlando. Here are five free agents who they must go after.
The Orlando Magic could use Rodney Stuckey as a solid ball-handler and offensive threat off the bench. The Magic are not very deep, and Stuckey could increase that depth at the guard position.
One of the most underrated players in the NBA, Deng can help the Magic step out of the darkness. He has an extensive skillset that would upgrade Orlando on both sides of the ball. He could stretch the floor with his shooting and create more opportunity for Victor Oladipo to work.
Matt Bonner's intangibles alone can lift the Orlando Magic as a team, but it is his height and shooting ability that can give coach Jacque Vaughn so many options on the offensive end.
Patty Mills has learned what it takes to win in the San Antonio Spurs organization and he could bring that same attitude to the Magic. Let's not forget that Mills can flat-out play. His scoring bursts and unlimited hustle could have him in the starting lineup in the future.
In all of the Orlando Magic's successful years, there was one common theme: they had a dominant big man who controlled the offense and defense. Greg Monroe could be next in the linage of big men for Orlando. His presence would be a great place to start the next step down what could be a successful road for Orlando.
