Big picture questions from the Magic's playoff series with the Raptors


Play NBA GM for a moment: Free-agent-to-be Nikola Vucevic had an All-Star season but was totally shutdown in the postseason by Marc Gasol and the Raptors.

Mo Bamba, though extremely raw, has the physical potential to match or even eclipse Jonathan Isaac on the defensive end of the floor.


Nikola deserves some bank this summer, but the Magic’s biggest priority should be finding shooters in free agency to take some offensive pressure off Aaron Gordon.


Unfortunately, signing both Ross and Vucevic to large deals may prove to be difficult, and would undoubtedly hinder the Magic’s ability to grow via bringing in external talent.
