After disappointing summer league games and bouncing around Europe for a couple years, Mario Kasun is now an official member of the Orlando Magic. Kasun has promise but is still pretty raw. He rebounds and runs the floor well. Kasun will bring a tick of toughness to the bench. I think we should have kept Zaza though. Kasun is no where near the kind of player that Zaza is and can be.

The Magic did a good thing here to resign DeShawn Stevenson for the upcoming year. Stevenson can play a couple positions and help spread the floor on fast breaks. He is athletic and quick. Stevenson adds to the depth of this Magic bench.
No doubt, this is a good acquisition for the Magic. Stacey Augmon is well known for his defensive capabilities. Augmon gives the team a deeper bench and the ability to really shut down teams when they need to. Augmon will also provide some veteran leadership on this young team.
