The Magic could be the league’s busiest team at the trade deadline

Deadline day has arrived.

We’ve spent the last few trade deadlines questioning whether it was finally the year the Orlando Magic would break up their longtime core of Aaron Gordon, Nikola Vucevic and Evan Fournier — the faces of the franchise during what has been the most frustrating stretch of basketball in Magic history.

And yet, when the deadline passed, all were still in pinstripes.

That could change, and most likely will change, over the next few hours, making Wednesday’s win over the Suns the end of an era.

We gathered some reading material in preparation of the trade deadline here, and we will use this space to provide updates and rumors leading up to the 3 p.m. deadline.

Join the conversation below during what will be a very important day for the Magic front office...


3:55 - Porter in Pinstripes?


3:33 - Teague to be waived


12:37 - Human Torch is gonna drop 50 tomorrow night (If he’s still on the team)


12:31 - Farewell, Gary Clark...


12:30 - Harris and Hampton headed to Orlando


12:18 - Gordon headed to Denver?


12:13 - LOL


11:34 - Not sure a traditional and injury-plagued center in Wendell Carter Jr. and what will probably be a pair of mid-first round picks should be considered an “offer we felt we couldn’t pass on”


11:31 - Two down, one to go?


11:27 - Fournier next to go?


11:23 - I understand the Bulls’ 2021 pick may fall out of the lottery entirely at this point, but how do the Magic allow it to be top-four protected when they are giving up one of the best players in the league???


11:05 - Aminu is part of the Vooch deal. Very underwhelming return for a player of Vucevic’s caliber. This better result in the Magic getting a top-three pick in the lottery.


11:02 - OMG


10:36 a.m. - Nikola Vucevic is still in play, but it’s going to take a lot to pry him away, as it should. Voochc, particularly with his ever-evolving skill set, can still fit into the timeline of a quick reset with a healthy Markelle Fultz and Jonathan Isaac.


10:01 a.m. - The Nuggets have acquired a backup center, meaning one less potential destinations for Khem Birch. Denver likely is still in play for Aaron Gordon.
