Vucevic recently told Sirius XM NBA Radio that he expects to start at center for the Magic during the upcoming season. "I don't expect [my starting role] to change. I think I have proven I am definitely a starter in this league and I believe one of the best centers in this league," Vucevic said. "I don't believe there is any reason for me to come off the bench. I have spoken to the Magic about it. They know that. That's no disrespect to Bismack [Biyombo] and he proved a lot last season and had a great playoffs. But I believe I will still be a starter and one of the main guys on the team going forward as well."
Coach Frank Vogel recently indicated both Vucevic and Bismack Biyombo would see plenty of time at center during the upcoming season, but wouldn't commit to either player in a starting role, Cody Taylor of Basketball Insiders reports.
