Magic Open To Moving Mario Hezonja?

The Magic reportedly will look to the trade market in order to add some offense and Marc Stein of ESPN.com (Twitter link) believes that evidence is starting to suggest that Orlando may be willing to move Mario Hezonja in the right deal.

Coach Frank Vogel said the team is considering a D-League assignment for Hezonja, as Brian K. Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel relays (Twitter link). The small forward has only seen action in six of the team’s last 15 games.

In the limited minutes during his sophomore season, Hezonja has struggled to produce. He’s only scoring 12.2 points per 36 minutes and he’s shooting 30.6% from the field, a figure which includes a wintry 17.2% from behind the arc. His player efficiency rating is an abysmal 2.3.

The Magic want to win this season and Hezonja isn’t helping them right now. However, he’s still only 21 years old and rival teams may view GM Rob Hennigan’s hot seat as an opportunity to buy-low on a former top-5 pick. Trading Hezonja may be Orlando’s best option if it wants to bring back someone who can move the needle for this team.

Should the Magic deal Hezonja? If so, what should they look to get in return? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below!

      Sounds good but magics would have to throw in another guy and/or a pick

      You & me both I think he would be great on the 6ers, the Magic don’t know how to use him

  2. Mr.Fixit

    Blockbuster trade with Celtics. Ibaka, Biyombo, Hezonja, and Augustin for Horford, Zeller, Gerald Green and James Young. Celtics get younger, improve rebounding and defense instantly. Magic get instant all around contributor and new leader. Horford goes back to Florida where he won a title in college. Celtics could flip Hezonja for a pick/or Jalen Brown & Jae Crowder/Jerebko become expendable for another trade. Celtics get veteran pg that can run offense and shoot the 3 in Augustine to take pressure off Smart/Rozier.

    Interesting 4-5 playoff match up.

    Magic (Payton, Fournier, Gordon, Horford, Vucevic
    Bench – Cj watson, Meeks, Gerald green, Jeff green, Cj Wilcox) James Young?

    Celtics (IT, Bradley, Crowder, Ibaka, Biyombo
    Bench- Augustine, Smart, Hezonja, Olynyk, Johnson)
    Rozier, Brown, Jerebko, Mickey?

    Interesting 4-5 seed playoff matchup.

  3. This has all of the hallmarks of a San Antonio fleecing. I’m not going to speculate and pretend to know everyone’s salaries, etc, but this is exactly the kind of project that Pop snags on the cheap and three years from now Hezonja is the next Ginobili as the sixth man on a title contending Spurs team. God help us all.

      This exactly what will happen. We just haven’t given him the playing time to develop & just don’t know how to use him. And I’m sure if we trade him he will develop and burn us later down the run and the Magic will be regretting it

    Hezojna for Teletovic?

    Telly’s one of J Kidds guys but has been getting DNP-CD as other Bucks (Jabari, Brogdon, Delly, Snell) are picking up the 3 point shooting. He’s on a good contract just maybe needs to be surrounded by stronger defenders like the Magic have.

    In Mario the Bucks get a lottery ticket wing the same age as their 2 budding stars.

      That would be a steal for the Bucks. Teletovic is not a good fit for the Bucks; he puts up the brick everytime he touches the ball. I wouldn’t mind eating some of the conract, just get him out of Milwaukee. And the Magic owe us for giving away Tobias Harris for next to nothing
