Cohen 8-Ball: Absolutely, Possibly or Doubtful
Can the Magic replicate what the Heat did in the summer of 2010? – POSSIBLY – Cohen’s Analysis: Orlando will have a plethora of salary cap space to offer upcoming impending free agents max contracts in 2014 or 2015. Considering the Heat, the other Floridian franchise, hit the jackpot in 2010 by uniting LeBron, Wade and Bosh together, it’s certainly plausible for the Magic to attract a star-studded cast as well. The Magic, generally, won the sweepstakes in 2000 by acquiring T-Mac and G. Hill and then landed the top FA, Lewis, in 2007. Those were the last two years Orlando had a ton of cash to spend. The problem is more related to the fact that there isn’t quite a glistening FA class on the horizon like there was in 2010.
