Good. I coudnt stand the man when he was on the floor. Great person but bad player. I coudlnt believe that he would start pouting when he was benched in the Tor series when it was obvious that he was absolutely ineffective and unusable in that matchup. He couldnt run, jump, move. Has stone hands. Then for some reason he thought he had offense and woudlnt pass the ball, instead taking a awkward low percentage shoot. He was actually a ball hog as funny as that sounds. I say good he is gone, replacable.

He definitely has no place in the NBA at this stage of his career. I would rather pay anyone that kind of money other than him. Looks like Battie, Gortat, and hopefully a draft pick/free agent pickup will hold down the other PF/Center spot alongside Dwight. GO MAGIC

Dude, take it easy.. While I agree that it's best for the Magic for him to move on, he is a great person on and off the court and I wish him the best moving forward. He's one of the very few good role models in the NBA and even though his on court play wont be missed too much, his leadership in the locker room will be missed.

Foyle opting out is a non-issue for the Magic. The guy is done and Gortat has alot of upside, he's younger, more athletic, and 3x as hungry than Foyle. This doesn't bother me a bit.

This ensures Gortat will get all the back up minutes behind Battie and Howard. He will be key this season. He is young and hungry. I imagine that he will work his but off this summer knowing the opportunity he has. I really like the kid.

Foyle was worth every penny. You can't get a guy to play in 82 games at 1.26 million a year. It will be hard to find another big guy back up for even 2 million a year. If Tony gets hurt, this could be bad. Plus there are not too many that can fit into Stan's Plan, which Foyle did. Good Luck and Thanks Adonal.

Oh yes and Please Trade JJ and try to move up in the draft. I dont think he will see anymore playing time then he did last year. What a waste, he'll do ok for some other team, but the magic are too in love with small guards for some reason. The last 2 years it has killed us. We are stuck With Jameer for now...is it me or dont you wish JJ was a ponit guard....I wish i wish i wish

Bye bye Foyle! We'll miss your 2 points on the court and your complaining on the bench. Please go to Memphis so you and Darko can go suck together! I'd feel a little bad about you leaving if only you could dunk a basketball or comit a good foul.

Marcin gortat will fill his role nicely. Gortat looked great in the postseason.
