Magic Notes: Turkoglu, Osby, Training Camp

Jameer Nelson hasn't had to worry about his starting job in a long, long time, but that changed this summer when the Magic decided to see what Victor Oladipo could offer at the point guard position.  It was a move that raised a few eyebrows around the league since the Indiana University product wasn't know for having exceptional ball handling as a two-guard.  However, Oladipo impressed during summer league and there could be a position battle brewing in Orlando.  Here's more on the Magic, courtesy of Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel..

  • The Magic are working on a buyout with Hedo Turkoglu and it sounds as though he'll have a nice opportunity waiting for him if it goes through.  According to reports out of Turkey, Fenerbahce Ulker has made an offer to the veteran worth roughly $3.4MM.  The Magic are on the hook for $6MM of Hedo's $12MM 2014/15 salary and the full amount becomes guaranteed if he's still on the roster by January 7th.  The 34-year-old is coming off of a down season in which he was suspended 20 games for anabolic steroid use.
  • Orlando plans to give second-round pick Romero Osby an invite to camp with an opportunity to make the roster this year.  The combo forward out of Oklahoma showed promise while playing in games during the Orlando Summer League.
  • With Nik Vucevic as the team's only legitimate center, the Magic plan to invite two big men to camp, along with a guard and a wing.
