USA TODAY: Magic to get own D-League team

“The Orlando Magic plan to enter a single-affiliation hybrid relationship with the NBA Development League’s Erie BayHawks, people familiar with news told USA TODAY Sports. They requested anonymity because the deal has not been finalized.”

The Magic have used the D-League sparingly as they have had to share their affiliation with several other teams. This year, the Magic’s affiliate was located in Fort Wayne, Ind.

The Magic have made it known they would like to bring the D-League back to the Southeast, possibly to Jacksonville. That will not happen most likely until another team moves into the region.
