Orlando Magic Starting Lineup 2021 Magic Starting Lineup

13-19, 4th in East Southeast

red-x Projected Proj

Orlando has been stuck the last few seasons despite making the playoffs. They didn't make any changes to their starting five this season. The Magic have a handful of trade candidates, so this starting five could look different halfway through the season. Markelle Fultz has earned the starting point guard role after his rocky career has turned around. Evan Fournier will continue to be the shooting guard, but small forward is going to be a spot they struggle to fill. We should see some rotating bodies. Aaron Gordon is one of the better power forwards in the league but needs to take another step to join that next tier. Nikola Vucevic flies under the radar as a premier center but averaged 19 points per game last season.
