The team insisted other players were given serious consideration as well. There are many things to consider, suitable in the short term and suitable in the long term balance between them.

“There are so many things to do with this.” said Magic President Jeff Weltman. “It’s talent, fit, character, projection of where the league is going. There are so many things that factor into a conversation like this that you could go on arguing for months. And that’s kind of what makes it fun, right? I mean, it’s a fun process.”
