NBA offseason 2013: Magic had low rate of roster turnover, according to report

Arron Afflalo, Nik Vučević, and Jameer Nelson - USA TODAY Sports

Orlando didn't make many changes to its roster in the 2013 offseason.

The Orlando Magic's low-key offseason means that the team that takes the floor for 2013/14 will look similar to the one which finished a league-worst 20-62 in the 2012/13 campaign. According to John Schuhmann's research, players accounting for 75.4 percent of the Magic's minutes in 2012/13 are returning for 2013/14, the seventh-highest figure in the league.

Only two of the six teams with less roster turnover joined the Magic in the Draft Lottery. Notably, one of those teams is the Charlotte Bobcats, which finished just one game ahead of Orlando.

Orlando shed Al Harrington, Beno Udrih, and DeQuan Jones in the offseason; of the three, only Jones exceeded the 800-minute mark.

Orlando will replace their minutes with free-agent additions Jason Maxiell and Ronnie Price. Victor Oladipo, the second overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, is the Magic's most important offseason addition. If he can find playing time behind Jameer Nelson and Arron Afflalo, the incumbents at starting point guard and shooting guard, respectively, then he could help turn the Magic's fortunes.
