Last year marked the first time the Magic have had a playoff berth since the 2011/12 campaign. While they didn't go far into the playoffs, it's still a good sign for what's to come with in Orlando. They're a team that's easily forgotten about when thinking about teams in the East, but they've put together a nice, low-key starting lineup that will definitely put some wins up this year. They're starters didn't change from last year, so any offseason moves they made affected their bench. Adopting an "if it ain't broke don't fix it" mentality here isn't something I have any qualms with.

Starting Lineup

PG: D.J. Augustin

Augustin actually had one of the best years of his career last year with the Magic. His 47.0 field goal percentage was the highest of his 14 year career. He only averaged more than his 11.7 points (in 2018/19) in 2009/10 with Charlotte and 2013/14 with the Bulls. He will continue to provide veteran leadership for the Magic in the 2019/20 season and be nothing but a beneficial presence. He was 36th in the NBA last year in assists averaging 5.3 per game.

SG: Evan Fournier

Fournier was an effective scorer for the Magic last year averaging 15.1 points per game. That number put him at 82nd in the league, which isn't elite, but it certainly helps. His 15.1 points per game is above his career average which currently sits at 13.5, but since joining the Magic he's averaged over 15 points per game 4 out of 5 years. His presence was definitely a big factor in the Magic winning the Southeast last year, albeit a relatively weak division all together.

SF: Jonathan Isaac

saac finished up his second season with the Magic last year averaging 9.6 points per game, 5.5 points, 1.1 assists, and a PER of 13.02. These numbers were all improved from his 2017/18 season, except his three point percentage dropped from 34.8 to 32.3. Isaac is just 22 years old and stands at 6'10". He still has a lot of room to improve, and I have no doubt he will as he continues to settle into the NBA. He's currently being compared to Rasheed Wallace in terms of career projections based on FiveThirtyEight's CARMELO system.

PF: Aaron Gordon

Aaron Gordon just finished up his 5th season with the Magic, the only team he's played for since entering the league in 2014. He was 69th in the league in points last year averaging a cool 16. His 7.4 rebounds per game had him slotted at 49th in the NBA, which certainly helped the Magic out immensely. He's a solid player for the Magic, and at only 23 I think he still has a lot of room to improve. I feel a breakout season coming for the young PF this year, as the Magic being better as a whole will only have a positive impact on his individual performance.

C: Nikola Vucevic

Vucevic was at the core of the Magic's success last year. Last year, he had a PER of 25.53 which put him at 15th overall in the league. His 12.0 rebounds per game had him at 8th, a huge help for the Magic. On top of all this, he's a scoring center averaging 20.8 points per game. 2018/19 was the best season of his 8 year career which began in 2011 with Philadelphia. I expect to see him put up similar, if not better, number this year.
