• Al-Farouq Aminu
    PF, Orlando Magic

    Al-Farouq Aminu posted five points, seven rebounds, a steal and a 3-pointer in his Magic debut on Wednesday.

    More pressingly, Aminu played 29 minutes tonight — the same amount as Aaron Gordon, five more than Jonathan Isaac (though he and AG each had four fouls) and 10 more than Terrence Ross. Orlando has a glut of forwards, and Aminu's profile as a physical, versatile defender could be a threat to those other three players given that Steve Clifford is coaching. Aminu himself should be a quiet top-150 player, as always, but we're going to keep a close eye on how the minutes get divvied up going forward.
