Anthony Parker hired as a scout by the Magic
 
Good for AP :clapping:

Guard Anthony Parker, who retired this offseason with the Cleveland Cavaliers, will join the Orlando Magic front office as a scout. Parker averaged 9.1 points over the course of a nine-year NBA career, playing in 16 games for the Magic during the 1999-2000 season. Via HowardTheDunk.com: “Parker, who was originally drafted in 1997 out of Bradley, played three seasons in the NBA before heading to Europe to play. Parker returned to the NBA in 2006 with the Toronto Raptors. He spent three seasons there before playing his final three seasons with the Cleveland Cavaliers.”

Why the magic though?
That's probably not the organization you want to jump aboard on currently.

Well it's easier to spot high talent prospects than it is sleepers and later picks, orlando is going to be a super high pick so it's better for him.

they would probably have him scout Europe since he played there for 6 years

I think he resides in Florida if I'm not mistaken.

i think orlando will be good again, i don't agree with the trade he made with the lakers, i would have preferred houston because of draft picks etc...

but it seems like there going to tear it down and build through high value top picks in the next 5 years, pulling a okc, if your bad for 4 or 5 years, not bad likie middle of the pack but true cellur dwellers, commit to being truly bad thats the only way you get out of it

not like the raptors who are bad but seem to settle for 9,13,5,8, over the last 4 years isnt going to get you the player you want or need

Congrats to him but i was really hoping that the Raptors organization and ownership would hire him as an Analyst(the lead analyst) for its broadcasting,on TSN,Sportsnet,Raps TV...a new voice is needed.

Then he shouldn't be a scout since they're always on the road, mostly in cold cities.

And he can suit up if all the Magic get hurt, and they need an extra body.
