NBA trade deadline 2014: Jacque Vaughn won't discuss deadline with his players

Jacque Vaughn - Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Magic coach said this week he won't address his team regarding Thursday's deadline.

The Orlando Magic, like most other NBA teams, will find themselves mentioned in trade rumors leading up to Thursday's trade deadline. On Monday, Magic coach Jacque Vaughn discussed how he plans to handle the deadline with his club. As one can see, the second-year coach takes a hands-off approach.

When one reporter asked Vaughn if he would address the deadline with the Magic, he said "absolutely not."

"It's part of the business. They know it," Vaughn said. He later pointed out that Orlando has just one rookie, Victor Oladipo, on its roster, so all of its players are familiar with the deadline.

Teams have until 3 PM Eastern on Thursday to make trades. Recent reports indicate the Magic are open to striking a deal, but one involving Arron Afflalo seems unlikely.
