Orlando Magic: 3 Reasons To Be Buyers At The Trade Deadline

The Orlando Magic recently capped off a strong first half of their season and currently have a 20-23 record. That places them 7th in the Eastern Conference standings.

Managing to make the playoffs for a second consecutive season would display real growth in the organization as a whole. They haven’t made the postseason in back-to-back seasons in the post-Dwight Howard era.

One way for the Magic to both maximize their chances of making the playoffs and be more competitive in a potential series is to be buyers at the deadline.

The Magic shouldn’t allow an injury to Isaac to compromise their ability to make the playoffs. As long as they aren’t making a bad deal that sacrifices their future, reasonable options should be considered.
