The Magic have absolutely no shot at getting LeBron this summer … but they’re going to try anyway.

According to the Orlando Sentinel‘s Brian Schmitz, the Magic plan to call The King, but they have little to offer him.

The Magic can’t acquire any of the marquee players in this star-studded class unless they strike gold in a sign-and-trade or a player takes less to join Dwight Howard and a contender.

For instance, Orlando has available the mid-level exception (which starts at $5.5 million) to entice LeBron (and Redick wants all or most of that). Asked if the Magic would be placing a call to LeBron on July 1, Smith laughed. He can’t utter the L-word for fear of a tampering charge, but it’s clear the Magic will reach out to King James.
