More Magic Rumors

Magic eye veteran big man Foyle -- OrlandoSentinel.com


The Orlando Magic may have set their sights on veteran center Adonal Foyle, who became a free agent Monday when he accepted a contractual buyout from the Golden State Warriors

Foyle, who played his entire 10-year career with the Warriors, was due to make $8.9 million this season and $9.7 million next season. He accepted slightly less from Golden State to become a free agent. He now can sign with any other team in the league, knowing he already will be well paid.


The Magic also had been in contact with more highly-touted free agents like Chris Webber and P.J. Brown, but both are expected to command a higher salary than what Orlando can pay under the salary cap restraints.

Also still available among free agents are power forward Brian Skinner (Milwaukee), center Marc Jackson (New Orleans), center/forward Vitaly Potapenko (Sacramento) and center Jake Tsakalidis (Houston).
Foyle could be had for the veteran minimum, but Boston needs him too. Not sure that the Sentinel is accurate about Webber or Brown. There doesn't seem to be another team willing to give them the full exception, so either could be available for less than that. The Magic still have all of their exception monies available should they choose to use it.

Foyle plus Evans or Najera would be a huge improvement over Garrity & Augustine.

    The Magic were the only team mentioned by Foyle on ESPN. He said he was interested in Orlando because it would be much closer to his homeland of tiny Canouan, in the cluster of Caribbean islands called St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
