Talking Orlando Summer League, and the Magic’s offseason with Philip Rossman-Reich
Our friend and fellow Bloguin writer Philip Rossman-Reich, who does great work over at Orlando Magic Daily and Crossover Chronicles, joined James and myself to talk about his experience at the Orlando Summer League, and what he thinks of the Magic’s offseason moves.
*Note* We recorded before the Magic signed Luke Ridnour, so forgive us for not seeing the future.
We talked extensively about the Orlando Summer League, and Philip shared an unique perspective having been amongst the teams, players, scouts, and other writers. If you’ve ever wondered how things go on in the Summer League (specifically one that is closed to the public) this is the podcast for you.
