Cohen 8-Ball: This or That
Would you rather the Magic make a big jump in the standings next season and make the playoffs or continue in this rebuild more traditionally and gain another high draft pick? Cohen’s Analysis: This is a convoluted matter. First off, if Orlando ascends that rapidly, it would insinuate that the young guys like Vucevic, Harris, Harkless and Oladipo made huge improvements. It is obviously more likely for their to be some progression, but not enough to double its win total. Next year’s draft class is expected to be loaded with potential future perennial All-Stars. Regardless of the outcome next season, the Magic are in position to gradually return to contention.
