Evan Fournier ignores all of the trade rumors and won’t ask to be dealt, writes Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel.
Arron Afflalo called his fight an isolated incident, writes Victor Tan of the Orlando Sentinel. Said Afflalo: “Regardless of the energy that was sparked from that, us getting a win last night and showing some fight figuratively — for me literally but for them figuratively — was a great thing.”
Khem Birch sharpened his skills while playing in the G League, Denton writes.
Arron Afflalo was contrite, but his fight seemed to give the Magic the edge and energy they needed, writes Philip Rossman-Reich of Orlando Magic Daily.

Fournier remains a top trade target for the Pistons, writes Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press.
Derrick Rose is set to return for the Cavs when they face the Magic on Thursday, writes Justin Rowan of Fear the Sword.
