ORLANDO: GUARDS: JAMEER NELSON will be trade bait all year, as the Magic have no interest in picking up his option after the season . . . ARRON AFFLALO is also on the trade block, and has more on-the-court value than Nelson . . . The Magic will find starter's minutes for rookie VICTOR OLADIPO somehow, at the expense of Afflalo, Nelson (if Oladipo proves capable of handling the point later this year) or both. He's the future in this backcourt . . . E'TWAUN MOORE is back mostly because he's a cheap option at back-up point guard. He's still a fringe NBA player . . . RONNIE PRICE is lucky to have a roster spot anywhere after a brutal year in Portland . . . Second-year man DORON LAMB will have a chance to prove himself as a second-unit scorer. FORWARDS: MAURICE HARKLESS has nice upside, and Orlando will find him more opportunities on offense. He reportedly added weight in an effort to be able to attack the rim more effectively . . . TOBIAS HARRIS is a disaster defensively, but after arriving in Orlando he showed the kind of versatile offensive skill set this team lacks. Expect him to win the starting job at the four . . . GLEN DAVIS will battle Harris for minutes, but as A 27-year-old, injury-prone player, he's more likely to be phased out by the rebuilding Magic . . . JASON MAXIELL will provide some physicality at the four and five . . . ANDREW NICHOLSON is still a work-in-progress, but is showing flashes of becoming an effective stretch four. CENTERS: NIKOLA VUCEVIC is a cornerstone in the Magic's rebuilding project. He's not terribly skilled or athletic, but he's a high-energy rebounder who has the touch to get plenty of baskets cleaning up garbage . . . KYLE O'QUINN had some nice moments in meaningless games late last year. The second-year pro might be able to hang on for a few more seasons as a back-up center.
SAN ANTONIO: GUARDS:Considering how exhausted he looked by the end of the Finals, don't be surprised if TONY PARKER gets more rest during the regular season . . . DANNY GREEN had a coming-out party this past June. A three-point specialist who can defend, the Spurs will lean on him more heavily during the first 82 . . . MANU GINOBILI looks oh-so-close to being done. His minutes will decline . . . MARCO BELINELLI adds quality depth behind Green. He'll take many of the minutes that used to go to Ginobili and Gary Neal, who left for Milwaukee . . . CORY JOSEPH enters the season as the favorite to back up Parker, but it's a fluid situation . . . NANDO DE COLO fell out of the rotation last season, but has enough talent that he should bounce back . . . PATTY MILLS is more of a cheerleader than a useful bench piece. FORWARDS: TIM DUNCAN just keeps going. The 2012-13 regular season was his best in years. The Spurs will keep his minutes in check, but he likely has another great season in him . . . KAWHI LEONARD is one of the league's elite role players, and he seems to keep getting better. He can shoot, score off the dribble and defend . . . JEFF AYRES is a skilled big man who will back up Duncan and can play alongside him for stretches. Like all of their frontcourt players besides Duncan, the player formerly known as Jeff Pendergraph, will see his playing time will fluctuate greatly depending on matchups. CENTERS: TIAGO SPLITTER continues to improve rapidly, and he'll now take the bulk of the minutes alongside Duncan. But as we saw in last year's Finals, head coach Gregg Popovich will keep him on the bench if the matchup isn't right . . . BORIS DIAW's versatility gives Pop options off the bench . . . MATT BONNER is pretty much just around to participate in the Three-Point Shootout at this point in his career.

*Magic-Spurs Preview* =====================


Orlando (19-44) at San Antonio (45-16), 8:30 p.m. EDT

The San Antonio Spurs just handed the two-time defending NBA champions their most lopsided loss of the season, and two more top-flight opponents await in a difficult back-to-back next week.

Don't expect the Spurs to overlook the last-place Orlando Magic in between.

No team has been better at handling the league's bottom feeders than the Spurs, who look to push their winning streak to six Saturday night as they continue their pursuit of the Western Conference's top seed.

San Antonio (45-16) has withstood periodic absences from Tony Parker, Tim Duncan, Kawhi Leonard and Manu Ginobili to again hover near the top of the West, where they're currently just a half-game behind Oklahoma City.

The knock on the Spurs coming into Thursday's game against Miami had been an ugly record against the NBA's elite. San Antonio entered just 3-11 against the league's other six 40-win clubs, but shot 50.6 percent and forced 20 turnovers while cruising to a 111-87 win.

"We needed a game like this," Ginobili said. "We've been talking (about it) all season long. Our record was (bad) against the top four teams in the league. So we needed a big one, and today we played well. ... It's one of those wins that really gets you going."

Duncan led the way with 23 points, but it was Leonard who got his coach's attention while holding LeBron James to 19 points on 6-of-18 shooting and matching a career high with five steals.

"(Leonard) is growing day by day," Gregg Popovich told the league's official website. "He is starting to feel confident in his role and taking pride in being a defender and rebounder first, then letting his offense come naturally and not thinking about it too much."

Magic coach and former Spurs assistant Jacque Vaughn had his own impressions from the nationally televised rout.

"Impressive, from beginning to end," Vaughn said. "They've had a bunch of different lineup changes and it looks like it's beginning to come together at the right time for them."

San Antonio will face a back-to-back next week at Chicago and at home against Portland, teams that are a combined 3-1 against the Spurs, but a letdown against Orlando (19-44) seems unlikely. Remove Indiana, Houston, the Los Angeles Clippers, the Heat, Thunder, Bulls and Blazers from the equation and Popovich's team is a combined 41-4 against the league's other 22 clubs.

That includes a 109-91 rout of the Magic on Nov. 29 - the Spurs' fifth straight win in the series - despite Parker sitting with a sprained ankle.

San Antonio's plus-12.7 point differential against sub-.500 teams is the league's best. It has surrendered 101.4 points per game to teams at or above .500 and just 93.1 to clubs with losing records, the second-largest gap in the league.

It's hard to imagine the Magic surprising the Spurs, especially considering their league-worst 4-28 road record. Orlando's lone win away from home in 2014 came Feb. 26 against free-falling Philadelphia, and it hasn't won a road game against a Western opponent since March 4, 2013, going 0-13 since.

The Magic were halfway to their third win in five games overall against the West on Wednesday, leading Houston 48-41 at halftime. But Orlando fell apart in the final 24 minutes, committing 12 turnovers and allowing the Rockets to shoot 59.0 percent in a 102-89 loss.

The Magic didn't have Victor Oladipo (general soreness) or Jameer Nelson (illness) against Houston, but both are set to travel to San Antonio.

Vaughn isn't sure if they'll play, but is at least keeping a sense of humor about visiting his former team.

"They're probably the healthiest they've been all year," he said. "Great time for us to go see them."
