I'm all for keeping Admiral, but why waive Mulder over Ignas? Ignas is one of the worst players in the league.

We should waive Ignas and sign Gravett or Gillespie.

Good move. I would waive Ignas for Gravett who really impressed me but if Fultz returns we will have no minutes for him.

Between the end of last season and his current stint with us, he's had what, 1 good game? And maybe 1 decent game. Mulder is not an NBA player, but it kinda seems like we have a strange fixation on Schofield, who hasn't really looked like an NBA player either. At least in my opinion. Obviously, every team is employing some number of fringe players right now, so the pickings are slimmer than usual. But even before the season, before the barrel started to be scraped, we really didn't have interesting 2-way players. You'd think 2-way contracts would be a good opportunity to stake claim on raw prospects that have some amount of boom-or-bust (mostly bust, but a non-zero amount of boom potential) potential. But we have preferred using them on older non-prospects. I guess that's no surprise, since it's probably closely related to our severe allergy to the 2nd round of the draft.
11/18/2017 - I have officially disowned Nikola Vucevic and branded him a loser.

- Skal Labissiere was my guy in 2016 pre-trade. Whoops, but I still believe.
- Malik Monk was my guy in 2017. Whoops(?)
- Mo Bamba was my guy in 2018. TBD.

This is not a surprise.

The Magic almost had a deal with Admiral last season but it fell through.

Last season, the 2 Two-Way Players (Jordan Bone and Karim Mane) who started the season with The Magic did not end the season on those Two-Way Deals.

It's very possible Ignas Brazdeikis (Other Two-Way Player) and even E'Twaun Moore are on that bubble as well to make way for other players who were brought in under hardship deals.

Schofield has proven himself to be a competent 3rd string player. That Mudler was waived Brazdeikis surprises me though. Perhaps this means the Magic is anticipating a lot of PGs in the rotation soon. Here's hoping./
