  • Van Gundy says Mickael Pietrus has been "unbelievable" in camp – Orlando Magic BasketBlog – Orlando Sentinel

    Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports that small forward Mickael Pietrus has impressed Orlando Magic coach Stan Van Gundy the most of any player during training camp:

    "I’ve been happy with everybody, but he’s probably stood out more than anyone. He’s making unbelievable efforts defensively. He’s making more solid plays with the ball offensively. His energy has been good. He’s been unbelievable."

    Entering his third season in Magic blue, Pietrus will likely battle free-agent signee Quentin Richardson for the starting small forward job.

    Steve Kyler of HOOPSWORLD has more information about the Magic's rumored trade inquiries to the New Orleans Hornets regarding Chris Paul and to the Denver Nuggets regarding Carmelo Anthony this summer. He says both were more serious than the team will admit publicly, and that there's a twist to the Denver discussion:

    Sources said while Carmelo Anthony was indeed a target, the Magic were not interested in Melo alone. The Magic wanted Chauncey Billups in the deal and would have parted with almost anything on the roster not named Dwight Howard to make it happen.
