NBA Free Agency 2012: Ryan Anderson Keeps Options Open

The Orlando Magic are heading into an offseason that should bring some pretty serious changes. That includes on the roster, where their most important player behind Dwight Howard will become a free agent. Ryan Anderson just won the NBA's Most Improved Player award, and it seems like he is going to test the market this Summer, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

"I love it here in Orlando," he said. "This is a place where I've had an incredible opportunity. I love living here. I think that this is a place that fits my style of play. You know, it's hard. It's hard because at the end of the day, it is a business. You know, I want to get the most out of my career that I can."

As for Magic GM Otis Smith; we don't know if he will still have his job after this Summer, but in the mean time he wants to bring Ryan Anderson back into the fold.

"We like him. We traded for him. We cleared a lot of space for him to get all those minutes that he was talking about earlier. So with that said, we want to keep him here in a Magic uniform. So we're going to do everything we can, and should, do to keep him in a Magic uniform."
