New co-host Andre Herring III joins Shot for the next chapter of what was once the Dig N Shot show. Dig has moved on, but Dre brings a wealth of knowledge from a basketball family. This episode will focus exclusively on the Orlando Magic in our attempt to determine Orlando Magic GM Rob Hennigan’s master plan.

Topics of Discussion:
1) ERIC BLEDSOE, MINI LEBRON
Can the Magic obtain Eric Bledsoe? The diminutive point guard was a dunk contest participant, and is often referred to as a “mini LeBron.” He’s playing behind Chris Paul, but his per-36 number round out to 15 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists. Not bad right? But how can the Magic snag him?
2) NERLENS NOEL, IN THE BAG?
The Cavs are appearing to show their cards, and that tarot card doesn’t seem to show a 6’11” 206 pound center. That’s good news for the Orlando Magic.
3) WOULD VICTOR OLADIPO HAVE BEEN BETTER?
Andre describes the prospects of Indiana University’s Victor Oladipo. Citing his immense athleticism, the comparison drawn is that of Andre Iguodala. Fitting, right, Andre?
4) C.J. McCollum, RISING FOR A REASON
C.J. McCollum of LeHigh is drawing mass interest on the heels of Damien Lillard’s success. Teams aren’t shying away from mid-major studs.
5) What is Rob Hennigan’s Long Term Plan?
Beyond this season, Rob Hennigan will have even more choices. Do the Magic tank again next season to have a shot at Andrew Wiggins? Many teams are considering doing the same.
The answers to these questions, or our attempts, anyway, will be featured in the inaugural episode of the Dre N Shot show. Stay tuned, Magic fans.
