PF (2): Rashard Lewis ($17.238 million), Brian Cook ($3.5 million)
SF: (1) Hidayet Turkoglu ($6.864 million),
SG (4): Mickael Pietrus ($5.2 million), Keith Bogans ($2.912 million), Courtney Lee ($1.176 million), JJ Redick ($2.140 million)
PG (1): Jameer Nelson ($5.556 million)
Total: 11 players, $64 million payroll. Luxury Tax happens around $69 to $71 million range this year. There are four positions open.
The biggest hole is PG. Need two more to fill out the roster. SF seems weak until you consider that Rashard, Pietrus and Bogans can swing to SF when Turk sits.
Otis ain't near done. So far the Magic have said goodbye to a bad PF in Garrity, an iffy PG in Arroyo, a streaky combo guard in Dooling, and an average SG in Evans. Plus unknown status of permanent bench warmer Augustine and aging center with funny accent Foyle.
There needs to be a net gain of 2 PG, 1 SF and 1 PF before training camp starts at the end of September.
