Now that the season is over for the Orlando Magic, I have decided to look into the future to predict who will be in the starting lineup for the Magic next season. What did I see? Let's find out.

Yes, I do believe that the Magic will chase after -- and get -- Lowry from the Raptors. Lowry will be a perfect fit to a team that needs a steady floor general who can create his own offense and offense for others.

Oladipo will serve the Magic much better as the starting two-guard. His ability to get to the basket and defend opposing guards will be a boon in the starting lineup.

Now that the Magic landed out of the top three, the team's leading scorer is almost certain to be back in a Magic uniform next season. He will once again provide steady scoring and tough defense for Orlando next season. But he still could be traded also, so he is a player to watch.

Harris should be the starting power forward for the Magic next season. His offensive game and defense is just too immense and important to Orlando's game plan for him not to be.

Vucevic is expected to anchor the team's front-line for the foreseeable future, and if he can stay healthy, he has a chance to be a top-five center next year.
