The Orlando Magic having such a quiet deadline is a bit of a surprise.
Last season, they pulled off a major trade, sending guard J.J. Redick, guard Ish Smith and big man Gustavo Ayon to the Milwaukee Bucks for forward Tobias Harris, guard Doron Lamb and point guard Beno Udrih.
Prior to last season, they also, of course, traded center Dwight Howard to the Los Angeles Lakers.
With veterans like swingman Arron Afflalo, power forward Glen Davis and point guard Jameer Nelson playing for a team that is rebuilding, trying to get more playing time for their young players and doesn’t seem particularly interested in winning games, the Magic were expected to be busy.
According to Steve Kyler of Basketball Insiders, that still could be the case.

It looks like there is almost no chance the Magic will trade Afflalo, but Kyler continues to believe Nelson and Davis could be on the move.
Davisis owed $6.4 million this season and $6.6 million next season. He is averaging 12.4 points and 6.4 rebounds per game.
Nelson, is making $8.6 million this season and will make $8 million next, but his salary for the 2014-15 is only partially guaranteed if he is waived before July 15. He is averaging 12.9 points, 6.7 assists and 3.4 rebounds per game.
