Steve Clifford wants Nikola Vucevic to do more damage from the post this season in an effort to find better balance on offense.
Vucevic has been drifting further away from the rim over the past few seasons — two years ago because of a poorly-constructed roster that was full of bigs and last season because of his 3-point output. It resulted in .467 and .476 shooting percentages. While Vooch knocked in enough triples to support top-50 value, if he can make that more of an occasional weapon and get his efficiency back up towards .500 then he'll be an even better fantasy play. The Magic also say they have no plans to trade Vucevic, who is on an expiring deal: "He’s very valuable to our team today, and he’s very valuable to what we want to be about going forward. So I wouldn’t even entertain those thoughts yet." Look for him in the early-middle rounds, even with young competition nipping at his heels.
