Tuesday afternoon, the Orlando Magic's Twitter account posted a strangely-worded trivia question about the team's defensive rating, or points allowed per 100 possessions: (the post was subsequently deleted) The question got me thinking: is the Magic's defense really all that bad? The raw number--113.4 points per 100 possessions allowed, per the Magic's tweet--is certainly bad. And it is true that the raw 113.4 number is the highest (i.e. worst) in team history.
The Orlando Magic officially signed forward/center Donta Hall to a 10-day contract, the team announced Tuesday. To clear a roster spot for Hall, the Magic released guard Devin Cannady from the 10-day deal he signed last week. The team also waived two-way guard Karim Mané Tuesday in a move that could create a path for Cannady to return to Orlando on his own two-way contract.
