The real (not "young pretend") Andre Drummond on the move?

Sources close to the Magic are saying it seems like the Magic and an unknown team are close to a deal if they can get "the pieces" right.

After having 12 injuries in less than 10 games (Markkanen twice, Holiday 3 times, Crowder twice, Payne, Lillard, Allen, RHJ, Capela, and that’s just what I can remember), Chicago is already planning for next season.

“This one is over. That bug ain’t fun. It’s part of the game (injuries) but this was beyond ridiculous. I’m shutting down activities for this year, we’ve already lost enough guys. We just changed coaches and told everyone to rest their bodies for next season. I’ll be back come draft time.”

You can google this stuff and it happens to many teams in real life, in all sports... and in all the seasons simmed with 30 teams, it was bound to happen at some point to someone. Just bad luck this season.

Chicago is still a playoff team and can still make some noise in the playoffs. Upsets happen PHX was just swept in the 1st round. Get there and anything can happen.

You're definitely not shutting it down, but I can see how someone would not want to risk next season with a long term injury after getting so many set backs. Sucks to see how the engine chooses certain teams that can't seem to catch a break every year.

It's def a little foolish to think the season is over. You're the 5 seed and can probably hold the line. Everyone but Lauri will be back for the first round and if you escape, he should be ok to play in round 2. Injuries have been shitty but it's not over for Chicago, or shouldn't be.

It may be related to the franchise ... my NLL Bulls suffered the same problem season after season. ;)
