    The Trail Blazers were trying to grab Aaron Gordon from the Orlando Magic. The Portland Trail Blazers were one of the first teams to pull off a consequential move this offseason, packaging Trevor Ariza and two first-round picks to the Houston Rockets in exchange for Robert Covington. While Damian Lillard and Terry Stotts got their versatile forward, he wasn’t the top option on their list.

Orlando Magic turned down Portland’s offers to land Aaron Gordon, before the Blazers used similar assets to make their move for the Rockets’ Robert...
    The Orlando Magic may be willing to part ways with Aaron Gordon to move up in the 2020 NBA Draft. The Orlando Magic earned a spot in the Orlando Bubble playoffs this past season.

According to Sam Amico, the Bucks are one of the teams that are interested in trading for Gordon. They have been linked with him for a long time and now, with the Magic ready to let go of...

The top-seeded Milwaukee Bucks, who were the victims of the biggest point spread upset in the NBA in 27 years to the Brooklyn Nets earlier this month, were beat 122-110 by the Magic in Game 1 of their first-round playoff series. The Magic were 14-point underdogs. That came after all four NBA favorites won and...
    The Orlando Magic were playing with Aaron Gordon and Jonathan Isaac but somehow they still blow out the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 1. No one was giving the Magic much of a chance in this series, but they came out energized and well-prepared, blitzing the Bucks in the first quarter and building a 10-point lead. Nikola Vucevic was dominant in the first half, draining pick-and-pop jumpers and finishing in the paint. He never really slowed down and had 30 by the time the fourth quarter began, with Orlando holding a 13-point lead. The Bucks drifted listlessly, through the first three quarters. Giannis put up 28 but the rest of the team was just 6-of-24 on 3-pointers. They closed the margin...
    The Milwaukee Bucks head into the playoffs seeking to regain the form that enabled them to earn the NBA’s best record. Milwaukee (56-17) has gone 3-5 since the NBA resumed play at Walt Disney World after a 4 ½-month hiatus caused by the coronavirus pandemic. After losing only nine of their first 62 games this season, the Bucks have dropped eight of their last 11. The Bucks’ recent slump lends some intrigue to what otherwise looks like a lopsided first-round playoff matchup with the Orlando Magic (33-40). The best-of-seven series starts Tuesday. “As a team, they’ve done a lot of great work in the season to put ourselves in this position,” Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer said. “Now we’ve got some...
    LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — Mo Bamba will not play for the Orlando Magic in this season’s playoffs, after the team announced Friday that he has left the bubble for testing related to his previous bout with coronavirus. Bamba was diagnosed with COVID-19 on June 11. The 22-year-old appeared in 62 games with the Magic this season but logged only 11 minutes of action in Orlando’s first two seeding games at Walt Disney World. He did not appear in any of Orlando’s final six seeding games. “On the advice of the Magic’s human performance staff and team physicians, Orlando Magic center Mo Bamba has left the NBA campus for a comprehensive post-Coronavirus evaluation,” the team said in a release...
    The Milwaukee Bucks have been the best team in the Eastern Conference all season long and come into the playoffs with some momentum and will look to build upon that against the Orlando Magic. Everyone knows who the Bucks boast – Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton and Eric Bledose. Antetokounmpo is likely to be the MVP of the league and after averaging 29.5 points, 13.6 rebounds and 5.6 assists, he is likely to give the Magic a ton of trouble in the first round. Milwaukee will look to get to the NBA Finals for the first time since 1974. They made the Eastern Conference finals last year only to lose to the eventual champion Toronto Raptors. Anything short of that would...

    Orlando Magic forward Jonathan Isaac was diagnosed with a torn ACL on Sunday night after going down with the injury in a game against the Sacramento Kings. Isaac suffered the tear in his left knee – the same knee in which he suffered a devastating injury to in January.

    NBA : Although he was much more discreet than usual, Evan Fournier participated in the success of Orlando this Sunday against Sacramento. Same story for Timothé Luwawu-Cabarrot with Brooklyn. Particularly discreet despite his 22 minutes on the floor, Evan Fournier could only register 4 points, captured 2 rebounds and distilled 2 assists this Sunday. Orlando relied on Terrence Ross (25 points) and Nikola Vucevic’s double-double (23 points-11 rebounds) to win against Sacramento (132-116).

Terrence Ross scored 25 points as the Magic won a season-best fifth straight game going back to before the pandemic-forced shutdown in March. Orlando won the last three before the hiatus and beat Brooklyn, the team it is battling for the seventh seed in the Eastern Conference, to open the restart. But the Magic lost Jonathan Isaac again when he re-injured the left knee he hurt Jan. 1 that kept him out until the restart....

Up by 28 with just about nine minutes left in Sunday’s game against the Sacramento Kings, the Orlando Magic had not a care in the world. They were cruising to their second straight victory in the NBA bubble, further solidifying their grip on the 7-seed in the Eastern Conference. But then third-year forward Jonathan Isaac went down with an apparent knee injury and the air was completely sucked out of the building. On a drive early in the fourth quarter, Isaac took a hop-step off the dribble as he tried to maneuver his way around defenders and get to the rim. That was when...
    The NBA resumed its season on Thursday and every player and coach on the four teams that took the court that day collectively took a knee during the playing of the national anthem. That changed Friday when Orlando Magic player Jonathan Isaac was the lone person standing as “The Star-Spangled Banner” played through the sound system before the team took on the Brooklyn Nets inside the NBA bubble. Isaac, a third-year power forward for the Magic, stood as each of his teammates and coaches; Nets players and coaches; and referees kneeled during the traditional pregame fair. In addition to standing, Isaac is also the first player not to wear a “Black Lives Matter” warm-up shirt. He was dressed in his...
    Orlando Magic star Jonathan Isaac has explained his decision not to kneel for the national anthem or wear a Black Lives Matter shirt - the only NBA player so far since the restart not to do so. Bronx-born Isaac, 22, stood for the national anthem before Friday's game against the Brooklyn Nets - the second night of games since the league restarted at Disney World on Thursday night.   'Absolutely, I believe that Black Lives Matter,' he said afterwards.  'I also believe that kneeling while wearing a Black Lives Matter t-shirt doesn't go hand-in-hand with supporting black lives.'

    So if you happened upon the Nets early in their return game Friday, you had to like what you saw. There was plenty of crisp ball movement. There were five engaged players, notably Jarrett Allen, who looked as if he’d been locked in a basement for four months and had energy to spare. It was Nets 16, Magic 8 before most of the virtual fans had even figured out how to properly cheer. If you happened to get there late in the game, you probably liked what you saw because who doesn’t like an 18-0 run? Who doesn’t like to see a team completely melt down and another team completely seize the moment, especially in a fourth quarter? Good...

    Brooklyn finally played a game that matters, a Friday restart against an Orlando team they had to beat. It couldn’t possibly have gone any worse. Right out of the gate the Nets faced the team a half-game behind them in the standings. And Brooklyn didn’t just lose – they got dominated and outright outclassed, blitzed 128-118 by the Magic at Disney. In their first restart game, the Nets fell into the eighth and final playoff seed in the Eastern Conference. And they look so shorthanded and sieve-like, it begs the question of whether they can even keep enough of a cushion to avoid a play-in against ninth-place Washington – or beat the Wizards if they can’t.

    LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — Evan Fournier scored 24 points, Nikola Vucevic had 22 and the Orlando Magic picked up where they left off before the NBA season was suspended, routing the Brooklyn Nets 128-118 on Friday in their first game of the restart. Playing as the designated road team not far from their arena, the Magic looked right at home at Disney — whose name they wear as their jersey patch.

    Orlando Magic forward Jonathan Isaac stood for the national anthem before Friday's game against the Brooklyn Nets, becoming the first NBA player to do so rather than kneel in protest of racism since the league's season restarted at Disney World on Thursday night. Isaac, a 22-year-old African American, has not had the chance to explain his reasoning yet as the Nets-Magic game is currently ongoing. Not only did Isaac stand for the anthem, but he declined to wear a Black Lives Matter warmup t-shirt as all the other players did during the pre-game demonstration. As was the case before Thursday's games, players, coaches, and referees all took a knee and locked arms before Friday's Magic-Nets game with the obvious exception...

All three of those players were starters for the Nets.

    By now, the news about how and why LA Clippers star Lou Williams left the bubble must have become familiar among NBA fans. The league veteran exited the Orlando bubble for personal reasons which was to visit the viewing of Paul G. Williams, who happened to be the father of a close family friend. However, Williams did not return into the bubble straight back. He took a small detour for dinner and relished a nice time at “Magic City” in Atlanta. The Clippers player has publicly stated in the past that this particular gentleman’s club is his favorite in the world. Moreover, Magic City’s great gesture for Lou Williams would have only made him visit them even more....
    Lou Williams gave an all-time great excuse to NBA investigators for visiting a gentleman’s club during the COVID-19 pandemic while briefly away from the Orlando bubble for a personal matter.

Magic City bills itself as the “premier Atlanta strip club” and is a fully nude adult entertainment venue.  But yes, dinner. Nothing else. Just some wholesome wings to go.

Willams, with the caption “Long Live Pops,.” Sources said Williams told NBA investigators that he attended a viewing for Williams which ended around 6...
