Report: Magic reluctant to deal Nicholson for marginal return
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(2/17/15) The Magic are reluctant to trade forward Andrew Nicholson for a marginal return, Yahoo! Sports reports.
Magic personnel are wondering how Nicholson will be utilized by a new coach next season. Both Jacque Vaughn and interim coach James Borrego haven't been able to incorporate the forward's inside-outside scoring abilities into the offense.
Nicholson has played just 18 games, averaging 3.1 points on 35.8 percent shooting.
Report: Magic place Andrew Nicholson on trading block
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(2/12/15) The Magic are looking to trade power forward Andrew Nicholson before next Thursday's trade deadline, according to a report from ESPN.com.
The Magic are working with Nicholson's agent, Mark Bartelstein, to move the big man to a new team. The reason for this is due to the depth in Orlando's frontcourt, which is preventing playing time for Nicholson.
During the 2014-15 season, Nicholson is averaging 3.1 points and 1.3 rebounds per game.
Magic acitvate Aaron Gordon, place Andrew Nicholson on inactive list
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(2/6/15) The Magic have activated forward Aaron Gordon, who missed more than 30 games earlier this season after fracturing the foot in November, and placed Andrew Nicholson on the inactive list for Friday's clash against the Lakers, according to the Orlando Sentinel.
Gordon is averaging 6.2 points and 3.4 rebounds per game. It remains to be seen what kind of role he'll have off the bench.
Orlando is a 3 1/2-point home underdog against Los Angeles.
Magic fire coach Jacque Vaughn after two-plus seasons
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(2/5/15) After a week of reports that the front office was not happy with his job, the Orlando Magic have fired coach Jacque Vaughn on Thursday. The team will hold a press conference later in the day to announce his departure. Former video coordinator James Borrego will be the team's interim coach. Scott Skiles has also emerged as a serious candidate to replace Vaughn, per Wojnarowski.
General manager Rob Hennigan released the following statement:
"Jacque (Vaughn) has been a trusted friend and colleague," said Hennigan. "We thank him immensely for his contributions and sacrifices in bringing our team to this point, and we greatly appreciate his unwavering commitment to our organization. We have tremendous respect for Jacque and certainly wish him the best as he embarks on the next phase of his career."
Vaughn's team was in the midst of a 10-game losing streak, the second-longest slide in his tenure. They also own the fifth-worst record in the NBA (15-37), which puts them 13th in the Eastern Conference, 7 1/2 games behind the eighth and final playoff spot.
Vaughn was an assistant for the San Antonio Spurs before replacing Stan Van Gundy as coach of the Magic in 2012, following the Dwight Howard era. The 39-year-old was tasked to rebuild the team after Van Gundy led Orlando to an NBA Finals appearance in 2009, drafting players like Andrew Nicholson, Kyle O'Quinn, Victor Oladipo, Aaron Gordon and Elfrid Payton. He owns a 58-158 record during his three-year tenure with a young core of players. His 26.9 win percentage was the lowest among any coach franchise history.
Magic to make Harkless, Nicholson inactive for Wednesday's game
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(1/21/15) The Magic will list Maurice Harkless and Andrew Nicholson as inactive for Wednesday's game against the Pistons, according to the team's website.
Nicholson has already missed the past four games, so the news shouldn't come as a surprise for him. Harkless had been seeing time with Tobias Harris sidelined, but will not play now that Harris is ready to return.
|After the first 15 games of the season, Andrew Nicholson looked like a solid breakout candidate, as he averaged 10.2 points and 5.6 rebounds per game in that span. Unfortunately, his shooting percentages cratered and he had trouble clearing out a consistent place in the rotation from that point on. Nicholson finished the season averaging just 5.7 points per game on 42.9 percent shooting, both of which represented a regression from his rookie season. The Magic's frontcourt is a crowded place these days, and that only got worse this offseason, leaving Nicholson's role very much in doubt. Though he has some useful skills, Nicholson should be ignored in most Fantasy formats on Draft Day.
