The Orlando Magic's season is over. But just because the team is no longer playing basketball games until September, does not mean that the rumor mill surrounding Orlando is going to go quiet. In fact, the rumor mill will now be kicking into high gear. What are the five hottest rumors surrounding the Magic right now? Let's find out.
There were rumors floating around that the DeVos family may put the team up for sale. Magic chairman Dan DeVos doused those rumors with water on Apr. 7, saying that the DeVos family has no intentions of selling the franchise.
Rumors are swirling that the Magic are looking to trade Afflalo. This may have some truth to it as the Magic were really close to shipping the guard to Charlotte before the trade deadline. If the Magic draft Jabari Parker, then look for Orlando to actively trade Afflalo for a quality point guard.
Regardless of what the Magic do in the offseason, one thing may be a forgone conclusion: Jameer Nelson will not be back in a Magic uniform next season. Orlando is actively seeking a new starting point guard, either through the draft or by trade.
Victor Oladipo will be in the starting lineup full time next season. But the biggest question is will it be at the two guard spot or at point guard? His position will be affected by what the Magic will do with Afflalo and if the team can snag a point guard either through the draft, free agency or by trade.
After two years of rebuilding and learning the ropes of being an NBA head coach, Vaughn will now be expected to put a more talented team together and make a run at a playoff spot next year. If not, Orlando may be on the market for a new head coach.
