Did photo accidentally leak Orlando’s summer free agency, trade targets?
On Monday, the Orlando Magic signed Patricio Garino for the rest of the season, they want to take a look at the guard wing out Argentina and see how he might fit with their young core.
As is common, a photo of Garino signing his contract was Tweeted out by someone close to the player... except in the background of the photo there is a whiteboard that seems to have a list of all Orlando’s summer targets. Here is a closeup of the board (the original Tweet has been taken down, as you would expect).
Interesting names on there. Andre Iguodala for one, he could get pushed out as the Warriors have to spend a lot to keep Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry this summer (it will mean Iguodala and/or Shaun Livingston could be on different teams next season). Paul Millsap could leave Atlanta, but for Orlando?
Dario Saric? Good luck getting him out of Philly.
Every team has a board like this, and this particular one looks like an early list, more brainstorming than detailed planning. Nothing earth shattering. Still, you’d prefer doesn’t go public.
