  1. Good news for the Magic and Vucevic, he will help us greatly in low post defense and rebounding.
    Just going to take some patience.

  2. Him and Ayon have really been a solid tandem in preseason and have pretty much combined to produce the same amount of production as Dwight Howard did almost so that’s a good sign heading forward.
