A few quick Orlando Magic updates as Day 2 of NBA free agency kicks off...

  • Tony Dutt, who represents Magic power forwards Brandon Bass and Rashard Lewis, debunked a rumor that Orlando had a sign-and-trade deal in place with the Utah Jazz to obtain Carlos Boozer.

  • To no one's surprise, the Magic have called restricted free agent point guard C.J. Watson to register their interest, according to Alex Kennedy, who also says the Magic "will wait several days before beginning serious talks with any players." That second bit aligns with what GM Otis Smith told John Denton yesterday about the team "let[ting] the market re-set" before making any moves

  • UPDATE: Chris Tomasson's sources say the Magic are one of the teams showing the "strongest interest" in free-agent point guard Steve Blake.
