Diener, Outlaw, will not return
July 12, 2007
The Magic don't expect point guard Travis Diener or forward Bo Outlaw to return to the team for the 2007-08 season. Both are free agents this summer.
Diener, 25, a second-round pick in 2005, played in 49 games with Orlando as the third-team point guard. He averaged 3.8 points and 1.0 assist per game. Outlaw, 36, played for the Magic for the past three seasons, returning to the club in 2005 after playing in Orlando from 1997-2002. A fan favorite, Outlaw played in just 41 games last season, averaging 2.0 points and 2.6 rebounds.
