The Orlando Magic host the Philadelphia 76ers on Thursday in their first exhibition game at Amway Center, with tipoff scheduled for 7 PM Eastern. The game will not be available on TV in the Orlando market, but 96.5 FM, the Magic's flagship radio station, will carry it live.

Both teams reshaped their rosters over the summer, and aided the other in doing so: the Sixers and Magic exchanged Nikola Vučević and Maurice Harkless for Jason Richardson as part of a larger deal which brought All-Star center Andrew Bynum to Philly. Bynum will sit out Thursday's game as he recovers from a right-knee operation. Arron Afflalo, who joined the Magic from the Denver Nuggets in the same trade, will also sit due to a strained hamstring. Michael Levin of Liberty Ballers, SB Nation's Sixers blog, might have said it best when he told me, via email, "Arron Afflalo and Andrew Bynum are sitting this game out just to make preseason less interesting."
