Magic interested in Marco Belinelli

4

Both the Los Angeles Clippers and Marco Belinelli were interested in a deal but the Clippers had just their Bi-Annual Exception to offer. The Clippers, with the lobbying of Chris Paul, made overtures to the New Orleans Hornets but the Hornets refused to take on Ryan Gomes via sign and trade. Now that the Clippers have gone with Grant Hill, Marco is looking at other teams. The Chicago Bulls, Orlando Magic, Golden State Warriors and New York Knicks have interest. The Knicks may have used whatever leverage they have to attain other players. The Warriors are looking at Carl Landry and are still deciding on what to do with Brandon Rush. The Orlando Magic are a possibility although it’s difficult to project their situation with the Howard situation unresolved. The Bulls may be the best fit having traded Kyle Korver and waiving Ronnie Brewer.
