Steve Clifford has a decision to make that is guaranteed to spark a great debate: should Mo Bamba and Jonathan Isaac start next season?

For most fans, the answer seems simple: Yes! On a rebuilding team, it seems logical to start your young core, giving them an opportunity to develop during a time when growing pains won’t make much of an impact on the win-loss record.

The organization, protecting their long-term investments, may not feel the same way. Why rush the development of raw 20-year-old talents by inserting them in the starting lineup when they still have plenty to learn and a long way to go before they develop physically?

Preston Ellis, Aaron Goldstone, Will Ogburn and Zach Oliver join forces to discuss this intriguing topic and many others, including the summer league play of Isaiah Briscoe, Troy Caupain, Wes Iwundu and Melvin Frazier Jr.

And other than the questions about who will start for the Magic, who exactly is shooting the ball? How will minutes be allocated among members of the Magic, especially at the point guard position?

Get the answers to these questions and more in the latest episode of the Do You Believe in Magic? Podcast. Also be sure to join the conversation and share your opinion in the comment section below.
