Orlando Magic Free-Agency Rumors, Day Two: Magic Turn Attention to C.J. Watson after Steve Blake Signs with the Lakers

New, comments

Perhaps the Orlando Magic's patient approach to the free-agency period worked against them in one instance, as backup point guard target Steve Blake has reached a four-year deal to sign with the L.A. Lakers. With Blake no longer available, Alex Kennedy says the Magic "are expected to zero in on C.J. Watson," a restricted free agent, to fill their backup point guard role.

No word on what they plan to offer Watson, but my speculation is that it might take the full mid-level exception to pry him from the Warriors.
