In Jameer Nelson (31 years old), Jason Maxiell (30), Ronnie Price (30), Arron Afflalo (about to turn 28) and Glen ``Big Baby’’ Davis (27), the Magic have plenty of players with veteran know-how of the NBA game. Those five players have an average of 7.4 years of experience in the NBA.
The Magic also feature a young core of Maurice Harkless (20), Victor Oladipo (21), Tobias Harris (21), Nikola Vucevic (about to turn 23), Kyle O’Quinn (23), Andrew Nicholson (23), Romero Osby (23) and E’Twaun Moore (24) who have young legs and promising futures, but are lacking on NBA-hardened experience. Oladipo and Osby are rookies, while Harkless, O’Quinn and Nicholson are in just their second seasons. Harris, Vucevic and Moore are heading into their third year.
