Magic Rumors: Harrington, Turkoglu, Nicholson

The Magic finished off a five-game West Coast road trip having gone 3-2, with impressive victories against the Lakers and Warriors. Orlando is 8-12, not too shabby for a team that was supposed to go into full-scale rebuilding following the Dwight Howard trade this summer. There are a few items of interest as the Magic prepare to play host to the Hawks tomorrow, most of them courtesy of Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel.

  • Power forward Al Harrington hasn't played a game yet for the Magic as he recovers from a staph infection in his right knee, but he insists he'll be back before the February 21st trade deadline. Harrington acknowledges his Magic tenure could be a brief one, since he's rumored to be on the trading block, and Schmitz notes that Harrington is holding off on buying a house in Central Florida.
  • Harrington, 32, is in his 15th NBA season, but isn't considering hanging it up soon, saying he wants to make it through 20 seasons.
  • While Harrington said he has a target date for his return, but wouldn't reveal it, Hedo Turkoglu doesn't know when he'll be back from a broken left hand suffered in the season opener.
  • John Denton of chronicles the development of rookie power forward Andrew Nicholson, the 19th pick in this year's draft.
