QUOTE: “It’s not much of an adjustment (switching from SF to SG). The offense we run, the shooting guard and small forward pretty much are the same thing. It just does depends which side the ball goes on.”

COHEN’S ANALYSIS: The Magic have a host of players that can play multiple positions. Harkless can play SF or SG and can defend practically any position other than center, Tobias Harris can juggle both of the forward spots, Victor Oladipo can handle a point guard role or stick to his more natural scoring function and the same versatility applies to a few others.

It is extremely beneficial for the Magic because Jacque Vaughn and his staff can explore different lineup options and matchups depending on who the opponent is and which players are playing well.
