Really curious how the new FO approaches off-season guidance, and how the players feel about their futures walking out of the office today.

I was wondering, when these guys say they are going to workout with stars like Kobe, Olajuwon, Kareem, Nash etc....Do they pay them for their time?

Metta World Peace said Magic told him that they really appreciated what he did this year, but probably wouldn’t bring him back next season.

I'm sure that's how the conversation went down:

Metta: I wanna play 2 more years!
Magic: (grimaces) uh, Metta, we love what you did this year but... no, just no...
Metta: so can I come back next training camp and compete for a position?
Magic: Metta... (sigh) we love you man, we love how you talk to the young guys but as far as your playing days...
Metta: I'm going to start working out this afternoon, I'm going to come back next year in even better condition, I want to play 2 more years!
Magic: uh, Metta, I'm trying to tell you in as many ways as I can that there is no way in hell you'll be on the roster next year.
Metta: so... you're saying there's still a chance? Thank you! Thank you Magic, you won't regret it!
Magic: uh... Metta?

no surprise so far. The team is not bringing back MWP, and Swaggy will test the market. He's most likely gone since he said he wants to be on a playoff team

Young says he’s 60/40 leaning… somewhere on whether he’ll opt out this year. Won’t specify.

(He’s opting out)

you want a guy that makes less than $6 Million and shoots 40%+ from 3 to opt out?

if we lose the top 3 pick it wouldn't be the worst thing in the world to bring Nick back, even if he opts out we could probably get him at a reasonable discount. Not unless Magic thinks we have a shot at Redick if the Clips decide to blow it up or Caldwell Pope because of his drunk driving arrest or something along those lines...

as far as value, no way we can replace his production at that price unless we found a sleeper type player

I will not lose any sleep if Young walks:

KCP
Reddick
Tim Hardaway Jr
Kelly Olynyk
Anthony Morrow

Those guys can display the 40% from 3 that Young did, plus they play better D.
