Ranking Magic’s Top Trade Targets After 2024 NBA Playoff Loss | News, Scores, Highlights, Stats, and Rumors

Written by on May 5, 2024

While the Magic can, should and probably will think offense this summer, they may not want to tilt too far that direction with a one-way contributor like Trae Young.

Instead, they might prefer his backcourt mate (for now) Dejounte Murray, who is reportedly more highly regarded around the Association.

“People in the league just like Dejounte’s game better,” NBC Sports’ Kurt Helin told Sportsnaut. “Where Trae Young doesn’t defend, demands the ball … there’s a sense that you can’t really build a true winner around him. You could with Dejounte.”

Murray, an All-Defensive honoree in 2017-18, could help the Magic stay long and stingy while also upgrading their offense. The last time he served as a full-time floor general (with the 2021-22 San Antonio Spurs), he averaged 21.1 points on 46.2 percent shooting and 9.2 assists against 2.6 turnovers. He’s also coming off the best perimeter shooting campaign of his career, averaging a personal-best 2.6 triples per outing with an above-average 36.3 percent splash rate.
