The Orlando Magic is linked to DeMar DeRozan as per Steve Kyler of Basketball Insider. Earlier this season the Magic had an interest with DeRozan as the team’s struggles. They need another wing scorer outside of center Nikola Vucevic.
Reports that the Spurs are asking too high for DeRozan who will be a free agent with a player option. It’s only right for San Antonio as the former All-Star is balling despite a losing record.
The Orlando Magic can offer a lot for the Spurs, they had Aaron Gordon, Evan Fournier, Mo Bamba, and Jonathan Isaac to throw in. One of these guys can really help San Antonio moving forward. With young players and a little cap space, they can play a little in offseason. While the Magic can bolster their playoff campaign for the second time after missed eight straight years. They are currently at eighth seed ahead of two games with the Chicago Bulls.
On the other hand Utah Jazz also a potential suitor for Demar DeRozan who likely needs help for Donovan Mitchell. The Jazz had no other excellent shot creator after the third-year guard. They can be a serious threat if they add DeRozan. The burden on Mitchell offensively will be lessened once they acquired DeMar DeRozan.
The Miami Heat is unlikely to be in the hunt after gets Andre Iguodala from the Memphis Grizzlies.
