The Orlando Magic will play Mario Hezonja as their backup power forward with Jeff Green out.
Hezonja has primarily played on the wings this season but Frank Vogel sees potential in him as a small-ball power forward.
“There’s a chance that this could be his best position or most natural position in today’s NBA: to be 6-9 small-ball four [power forward]," said Vogel. "He’s going to have an opportunity to take a look at that and see what that feels like."
The Magic acquired Serge Ibaka last June while also signing Green and Bismack Biyombo, which further crowded their frontcourt and shifted Aaron Gordon to the 3.
