#4 Stay Flexible Financially
When the Magic traded Dwight Howard in the summer of 2012, it was apparent they preferred to restructure the team with a cost-efficient approach. They didn’t consume any long, taxing and salary-cap destructing contracts. In today’s NBA, that’s a common rebuilding strategy. Fill the roster with inexpensive talent and wait until the appropriate time when the free agent class is powerful and rewarding enough to spend freely. Orlando has clearly employed this financially friendly tactic.
