When it comes to the small forward position, it does not appear to be a pressing need.
In some combination, Terrence Ross, Jonathan Isaac and Mario Hezonja should be able to hold down the fort this season. Adding a player like Rudy Gay or Otto Porter does not make much sense as it will only bury Isaac or force him to play power forward behind Aaron Gordon, eliminating the chance for the magic to play their two young players together.
Golden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala seems like a dream — a reach for a versatile, veteran defender who used to be an All Star and might be able to push the team to a higher level if he can turn back the clock. The Magic are reportedly interested in pursuing Iguodala in free agency this summer, according to Chris Haynes of ESPN.com.
However, the team could add a versatile wing who can play both the 3 and 4 like a Rudez or Johnson. The money is probably the only question as the team has other pressing needs they will likely address prior to small forward.
If the team is settled at small forward, they could add Rudez as deep depth or look to the D-League to fill that final roster spot. Rudez would see the floor occasionally and really just be on the roster for an emergency. He knows the system and will not cost much.
If the Magic want to make a minor splash, a player like James Johnson makes sense. He can play both at forward spots and be a solid backup behind Aaron Gordon.
A player who fits that bill is likely a target for Orlando.
