Orlando Magic's Victor Oladipo working with Dwyane Wade

It’s going to be another rough season for the Orlando Magic, though they save you have to weather the storm before sun shines through the storm clouds. So while another lottery bound season appears likely, the Orlando Magic do have one of the better young rosters in the NBA.

Assuming their talent continues to mature, it’s reasonable to believe the Magic will eventually find themselves in the elite of the Eastern Conference, especially if their youthful talent continues to better themselves like Victor Oladipo.

The former Indiana product has worked hard on his game this offseason and is working out with a handful of fellow NBA athletes this Summer, including Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade.

Former Indiana All-Americans Cody Zeller and Victor Oladipo, who will appear Wednesday evening at IU’s “on the road” tour stop at Lucas Oil Stadium, are expected to workout in IU’s facilities this week.

In addition to Oladipo and Zeller, five members of the Miami Heat will also workout in Bloomington: Dwyane Wade, a former player for Tom Crean at Marquette, Mario Chalmers, Norris Cole, Udonis Haslem and Josh McRoberts.

Wade’s admission may be a little odd on the surface considering most of the other NBA players working out have some sort of Indiana ties, though Wade simply wanted to work out his former Marquette coach.

Both Wade and Victor Oladipo share a similar style of playing and you have to think the Orlando Magic guard has open ears for whatever Dwyane Wade has to say. Certainly good news for the Orlando Magic and their fans.
