Sometime during the NBA free-agent period, which gets underway at midnight on July 1st, the Orlando Magic could meet with Detroit Pistons guard Rodney Stuckey, reports Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press. Ellis' report says that Stuckey is unlikely to re-sign with Detroit, and to "expect" a meeting between Orlando and the 28-year-old to take place.

The Magic do have at least one tie to Stuckey: Scott Perry, the Magic's assistant general manager, served as Pistons' vice president of basketball operations from 2008-2012. His relationship with Jason Maxiell, another former Piston, played a role in Maxiell's decision to join the Magic as a free agent in 2013.

Stuckey averaged 13.9 points, 2.3 rebounds, and 2.1 assists in 73 appearances for Detroit in the 2013/14 season. In his seven-year career, all with the Pistons, the Eastern Washington product owns per-game averages of 13.4 points, 2.9 rebounds, and 3.9 assists. Though he doesn't space the floor--his career three-point percentage stands at 28.6--Stuckey is known for his ability to create offense for himself off the dribble.
