Magic's Position-by-Position Starting Lineup Options
Channing Frye – 60%
Tobias Harris – 20%
Aaron Gordon – 15%
Andrew Nicholson - 5%
It really depends on what Jacque Vaughn and his staff envision from their starting power forward. If they yearn for a stretch four who can space the floor with proficient outside shooting and also provide superior length and experience, Frye is the obvious choice.
If the Magic want more of a scoring punch and aggressor, Harris may be the guy to fill this slot. Largely because of an ankle injury that forced him to miss the first five weeks, Harris had a roller coaster season last year. He admits he was never completely 100 percent, but with an entire offseason to heal up, many expect Harris to have a breakout year in 2014-15.
Orlando is likely to take it very slow with Gordon, who is a tenacious defender but currently deficient on the offensive end. His rookie season will be very much a training period as he continues to develop more skills and comfort.
