Magic Notes: Nicholson, Draft, Frye

Devyn Marble was the only player whom the Magic sent to the D-League this season, as our D-League Usage Report indicates. The guard averaged 13.0 points and 5.2 rebounds per game during three assignments with the Erie Bayhawks, the team’s D-League affiliate.

Here’s more from Orlando:

  • Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel wouldn’t be surprised if the Magic traded Andrew Nicholson this offseason. Robbins cites the forward’s inability to run the floor well, which doesn’t mesh with the strengths of guards Elfrid Payton and Victor Oladipo, as reason for a trade. The 25-year-old will make slightly under $2.4MM during the 2015/16 season, which is the last year of his rookie contract.
  • Willie Cauley-Stein and Justise Winslow are among the prospects the Magic should attempt to interview and learn more about at the Draft Combine, Robbins opines in a separate piece. Cauley-Stein is likely the best rim protector in the draft and with his skill set, he would complement Nikola Vucevic nicely. Jonathan Givony of DraftExpress ranks the Kentucky product as the sixth best prospect, while Chad Ford of ranks him as the seventh. Orlando has a 91.2% chance to receive one of the top six picks, as our Lottery Odds page shows.
  • Channing Frye, who signed a four-year, $32MM deal with the Magic last offseason, could be an attractive asset to a team that already has a rim protector, opines Robbins in a separate piece. Frye’s salary, which decreases by 4.5% annually, along with his shooting range, should generate some interest on the trade market.
