Foye, Brewer, Carney work out for Magic

ESPN.com - INSIDER - Chad Ford Blog: "The Magic had the mother of all swingman workouts on Thursday afternoon at their practice facility, bringing in six of the top shooting guards and small forwards in the draft. Villanova's Randy Foye, Arkansas' Ronnie Brewer, Memphis' Rodney Carney, Temple's Mardy Collins, Rutgers' Quincy Douby and Arizona's Hassan Adams worked out for roughly two hours against each other.

What was the verdict? A Magic spy said the workout was very competitive, but Foye, Brewer and Carney shined the most.

It's unlikely that Foye will be on the board when the Magic pick. However, Brewer and Carney (along with Duke's J.J. Redick) likely will be in serious consideration for Orlando's No. 11 pick.

Orlando needs an athletic swingman to put in the backcourt with Jameer Nelson. Either Brewer or Carney would be an excellent addition.

However, the player the Magic really covet is Washington's Brandon Roy. The Magic have been working for several weeks to move up in the draft, but they face a practical problem: How high do you have to move up to get Roy?

Conventional wisdom says No. 4 or No. 5 in the draft. But the Bulls are seriously considering him at No. 2. The Magic probably don't have the ammunition it's going to take to get that high in the draft. Dwight Howard, Darko Milicic and Jameer Nelson are untouchable. It's doubtful a team would take a player like Carlos Arroyo or Hedo Turkoglu for a high lottery pick."

    I wonder if the Magic will be leery of taking J.J. Redick now since his DUI arrest. Very poor judgement on Redick's part.

    Like WeRDevos pointed out, Brandon Roy will go high in the draft before the Magic would have a chance to select him, even if the Magic move up in the draft.

    If Brewer and Carney performed as well in the Magic workout as the Magic spy said, I agree either would be an excellent addition.

    Finally getting around to the computer again... Long time no talk.. LoL...

    Yes, i think the Magic will be leary obout selecting Redick. The Magic have always been family friendly organization that usually steared clear of players with any kind of baggage, whatsoever.. Remember Troy Hudson? He wasn't even home when that stuff happened at his house and he was gone the next week..
