The Magic are repprtedly pursuing the Warriors' Monta Ellis in an effort to convince Dwight Howard to stay in Disney World. While that's a deal looking toward the team's long-term goals, how does it affect their short-term priorities? Orlando is in need of a bonafide scorer who wants the rock and is not scared to shoot it 20 times per game. If the team can learn to adapt to Ellis' style of play early (provided they, you know, actually get him), this team should be scary come playoff time. —Jose Martinez
