The 2000–01 season was the 12th season of the Orlando Magic in the National Basketball Association (NBA). During the offseason, the Magic acquired Tracy McGrady from the Toronto Raptors, and All-Star forward Grant Hill from the Detroit Pistons, while signing free agent Troy Hudson. However, Hill re-injured his ankle from the previous season after playing just four games. Despite losing Hill, the Magic would return to the playoffs after a one-year absence, finishing fourth in the Atlantic Division with a 43–39 record. McGrady, who averaged 26.8 points per game was named Most Improved Player of the Year, and was selected for the 2001 NBA All-Star Game. Top draft pick Mike Miller was named Rookie of the Year averaging 11.9 points per game. In the playoffs, they lost in four games in the first round to the Milwaukee Bucks. Following the season, John Amaechi signed as a free agent with the Utah Jazz.
