The partnership, also referred to as a "hybrid affiliation," allows an NBA team to control the NBA D-League team's basketball operations, while the existing local ownership maintains primary responsibility for the team's off-the-court business operations and community initiatives.
Orlando's next game is Tuesday, December 20 @ Miami. Tip-off is 7:30 p.m. Coverage on FOX Sports Florida begins at 7 p.m. For ticket information, log on to OrlandoMagic.com or call 407-89-MAGIC.
