but one player less to trade to contender for pick... He could have been guy that brings value as trade asset. But nop, sinking ship.


He could've been that last season, but instead he was utterly hopeless. I'd rather invest time into young players who have room to grow rather than old, underperforming vets.

I have an endless collection of bad signings from the Magic but this one must be the first in line.
What a waste of money...

Well now he isn't worth anything :lol:

It's funny, just year and half ago he was solid rotation player on playoff teams. Now he is worth nothing.

One day we'll be saying the same thing about Evan, AG and Vuc. We are simply a pathetic lost cause of a team.

I don't know where the blame goes, but this situation has been botched.



This post reminds me of when the Grizzlies had a player named Jordan Adams a few years ago. He underwent surgery on his right knee two or three times. The first time, it was thought to have gone well, but the lingering soreness still was an issue. So the Grizzlies medical staff went in again thus causing Adams to miss more time. There was speculation running around the team and perhaps the city that the then medical team botched the surgery for Adams up. Not long after Adams was waived, the then medical staff was let go rather quietly leaving behind the speculation of botch medical precedures of Jordan Adams behind them.

"operation was sucess" was movie sentence that somehow founds it's way to mainstream media. Doctors in past never said it, i was reading some forum about it and few doctors said that they never said those words after surgeries in their lifes.
Operation was sucessful ... but patient (maharaja) died is old joke from i think hindu book, around 1920s or so.

But in general, for them it means that surgery didn't have any additional complications, anesthesia was done well, there was no structural, nerve or any other demage and first prognosis is positive.

DJ had two good years one horrible year(first year with us) and one ok year(last year), wouldnt say that was a good signing. MCW has been a good signing i'll give you that one. I am not sold on Bacon, he has shot under 38% 2 out of his 3 years in the league..

DJ did leave us as the beloved leader moving on but many (correctly at the time) thought he was hugely overpaid at $7m for a while. The ones that trouble me the most are Jeff Green and Ibaka, who both had the worst year of their generally great careers with us. I guess you could add Aminu but, to me, that's not fair as he was and is injured. Hope he returns and is the solid role player vet he's been before.

It has now been over a year since Aminu wore Magic blue in a game.

Even when he did play he looked like a trash signing, I'll throw him under cons for our front office.

Aminu had to be one of the worst signings.

He's more valuable as an expiring next year than anything else... what a waste of cap space
