Al Harrington Very Iffy

Previously, Harrington had been considered questionable for training camp, but his knee hasn't healed to the point where he'll be ready. Harrington had at least three knee surgeries over the summer due to complications which resulted in the veteran having a staph infection, so keep an eye on his status closely as we move toward the regular season as his return will be dictated by how his knee responds.

All I have to say is you got what you deserved Rob Hennigan. Taking that garbage package back for Dwight over a stronger package from Houston was foolish. When the only decent thing you will have to show for this trade is a mediocre Aaron Afflalo and maybe Harkless pans out, you did a poor job.

The blame goes beyond Hennigan. Orlando mishandled Dwight long before Hennigan was hired. Hennigan is the youngest GM in the league with lack of experience. He mishandled it, but there are some rumors that the decision making on the deal was from other parties in the Magic organization. The Magic ownership and management got what they deserved. Actually, I kind of feel sorry for Hennigan because he was hired into an ugly situation and was in over his head.
Yes, Warriors sold at last!

I know DeVos and Martins had their fingerprints all over it. Thus, I should have said Magic management got what they deserved. Regardless of the reason, I stand by my opinion that Houston easily had an offer on the table better than what Orlando got. I know they had better pieces to offer for sure. The sickening part is the Magic not only took garbage back, but they pandered to a guy trashing all over their franchise by sending him to a big market powerhouse in the Lakers.

It seemed like the Magic Organization was as Surprised as anyone when they got to the finals. After that it was like they couldn't figure out the best way to build their team. Every subsequent move by Otis Smith was a disaster http://www.basketball-reference.com/executives/smithot01x.html (including the Bass for Big Baby deal)

I would say yes. They'll need scoring, and Big Baby is one of the only PF options other than Harrington.

Davis will get some early run but he's really not very good and I expect him to get outplayed by Ayon and Nicholson.
