#1 Opening Night Starting Lineup
Josh Cohen’s Analysis: There is about a month left until training camp opens and at that time Jacque Vaughn will start his lineup inspections. There are naturally plenty of options for he and his staff to evaluate and consider.
For one, the Magic’s starters on Oct. 29 in Indiana may resemble more of the same from last season. If it is decided that Victor Oladipo will begin the season as a reserve and if Glen Davis is healthy, it’s not impractical for Orlando to feature a starting cast similar to last year.
On the other hand, if Oladipo looks fruitful in the preseason and if Big Baby is still bothered by his foot ailment, it’s not far-fetched for the Magic to look radically different on opening night.
