It was a wild few hours for Magic Twitter.
Even though moves were expected for the Orlando Magic, they still hit hard, leading to a wide range of emotions expressed through tweet following the trades of Nikola Vucevic, Evan Fournier and Aaron Gordon. (All this after a Magic Twitter Civil War the previous night over a tanking debate following the Magic’s victory over the Suns!)
It was a sad day, but a necessary day.
Hopefully the next Magic Twitter frenzy is a celebratory one following the NBA Draft Lottery.
Below are some of the best Orlando Magic tweets we came across during trade deadline day.
As always, the tweets speak for themselves...
the Magic before the trade deadline:— SB Nation (@SBNation) March 25, 2021
• Aaron Gordon
• Nikola Vucevic
• Evan Fournier
the Magic after the trade deadline:
• Wendell Carter Jr.
• Otto Porter Jr.
• first and second round picks Jr.

I know there’s a lot to digest right now but I need to emphasize this: wait until you see how bad this Magic team is going to be after today.— Kevin Clark (@bykevinclark) March 25, 2021
It wasn’t just Fultz, Fournier missed 18, Gordon missed 19, Aminu missed 27 MCW missed 23 Ennius missed 17 Cole missed 19...way more than a vet pg... ♂️ https://t.co/V0CqkwHvNA— Greg Anthony (@GregAnthony50) March 25, 2021
it’s official: Orlando’s young core of Fultz, Gordon, Isaac, and Bamba never played a single minute together on the court.— Beyond the RK (@beyondtheRK) March 26, 2021

Want to thank Nikola Vucevic (@NikolaVucevic) for his entire Magic tenure. Great man and interview. He was never meant to be the #1 guy in Orlando, but for nearly a decade and two front office regimes, Vooch persevered through all of the shit to succeed and be a 2-time All-Star. pic.twitter.com/MsuKnCV989— Adam Papageorgiou, MBA (@PapageorgiouMBO) March 25, 2021

Pro tip: never buy an @OrlandoMagic jersey unless it has O’Neal, Hardaway or McGrady on the back.— Justin Warmoth (@JustinWarmoth) March 25, 2021
Disappointed to learn the Orlando Magic are no longer fully committed to their franchise goal of making the playoffs as an 8-seed, winning Game 1, then losing 4 straight. This will make it even more impressive when they continue to do it every single year— Rodger Sherman (@rodger) March 25, 2021
Yesterday was the start of a new path for the Orlando Magic— Andy (@andyrharrington) March 26, 2021
Fun young players Fultz, Isaac, Cole, Chuma, RJ
High draft picks
Better trade assets
Clear direction going forward
Plenty of mixed emotions, but there is a lot to be excited about! #MagicTogether

We traded Vooch in the Dwight trade and no one could pronounce his name. Dude blossomed here, stayed committed here, gave us everything he had, brought us back, was nothing but a class act. This is so sad man. I want you to know that I love you @NikolaVucevic and you’ll be missed— Sam Gorovitz (@sam_gorovitz) March 25, 2021
