Synopsis: In my latest for The Athletic Toronto, I joined two colleagues to discuss the Magic buying out Khem Birch, freeing him to sign with the Raptors.
On Thursday morning, The Athletic’s Josh Robbins and Shams Charania reported the Magic are poised to waive Khem Birch. If he clears waivers, Birch intends to sign with the Raptors.
Robbins, the Magic beat writer, and Blake Murphy and Eric Koreen, who cover the Raptors, had a conversation to break down the meaning of the news. This is quite possibly the world’s first 1,700-word Khem Birch discussion.
Koreen: Khem Birch is coming home! Kind of! He’s from Montreal and not Toronto. Also, the Raptors play in Tampa, not Toronto.
