1) Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel writes J.J. Redick's return to Orlando deserves a standing ovation.
2) The Magic's young players had nothing but praise for J.J. Redick, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports, as Redick plays his first game in Orlando against the Magic.
3) Jameer Nelson is out tonight for the sixth consecutive game, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.
4) On the flip side of the J.J. Redick trade, Tobias Harris told Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel that the trade to Orlando and the opportunity to play was a game changer for him. In fact, opportunity has been the most powerful force for Harris.
5) In his first mock draft of the NBA Draft season, Chad Ford of ESPN.com has the Magic selecting Marcus Smart of Oklahoma State with the second pick in the draft. Discuss. (h/t Evan Dunlap of Orlando Pinstriped Post)
6) In case you have not seen this report yet, Forbes recently ranked two Magic players among their most overpaid players in the league, using win shares as their metric for determining value. Hedo Turkoglu and Arron Afflalo cracked the list. Both Evan Dunlap of Orlando Pinstriped Post and I believe the analysis of Arron Afflalo is unfair.
7) If you are unfamiliar with who the Magic might be taking in the upcoming Draft, let Riley Allen of Bleacher/Report give you a quick introduction.
