Current Magic Roster Status

Action-packed is not a word you can use to describe the Orlando Magic's offseason. Not many changes were made to the squad, as the front office looks to go on another run with pretty much the same side in 2020-21.

Orlando was not involved in any trades, but they did bring in former Charlotte Hornets shooting guard Dwayne Bacon via free agency. Their most significant addition, however, came in the form of rookie Cole Anthony, who the Magic selected 15th overall in the 2020 NBA Draft. Anthony, a 6-foot-2 point guard coming out of UNC, figures to serve as Orlando's primary backup at the one spot.

The Magic did lose a number of guys in free agency including D.J. Augustin and Wes Iwundu.

In terms of player contracts, Orlando extended a couple of key players to long-term deals during the offseason.

After an injury-riddled 2019-20 campaign, highly-promising 23-year-old power forward Jonathan Isaac penned a massive $70 million extension for four years. The Magic committed their future to the 6-foot-11 big man in spite of the fact that Isaac is not expected to play this season after he underwent knee surgery in August.

Another prospect for the future for Orlando is former first overall pick Markelle Fultz, who signed a $50 million deal that will see him remain with the Magic until 2024. Unfortunately, after a strong start to the season, Fultz suffered a season-ending ACL tear, which pretty much derailed Orlando's plans for the campaign.

Rookie Cole Anthony was handed over the reins of the offense in the wake of Fultz's injury, becoming the Magic’s starting point guard. He is joined by Evan Fournier, Aaron Gordon, Dwayne Bacon, and Nikola Vucevic in the starting unit.

Coming off Orlando's bench are Terrence Ross, James Ennis, Michael Carter-Williams, Khem Birch, Gary Clark, Chuma Okeke, and Jordan Bone.

orlando magic Team Analysis

Who Did The Magic Recently Sign?

On August 6, The Magic signed Robin Lopez to a one-year deal worth $5 million.

Last season, Lopez plied his trade with the Washington Wizards, averaging 9.0 points and 3.8 rebounds in 19.1 minutes per game. The 7-foot center adds some depth to Orlando's frontcourt, and his veteran presence could also be beneficial for the Magic's young roster.

Who Are The Magic Targeting In Free Agency?

Unlike a number of other teams around the league, the Magic were not very active in this summer's free agency. Their only two signings came in the form of 33-year-old big man Robin Lopez, who penned a one-year deal worth $5 million. Orlando also signed 6-foot-11 center Moritz Wagner to a two-year extension after the 24-year-old joined the squad in the middle of last season via trade.

It is worth noting, however, that the Magic appears to have gotten their hands on their point guard of the future via the draft. With their fifth overall pick, Orlando selected Jalen Suggs from Gonzaga in what many consider to be an excellent addition to the team. The Magic also held the rights for the eighth overall pick, which they used on 19-year-old forward Franz Wagner, who happens to be the brother of Moritz Wagner.

Who Did The Magic Most Recently Trade For?

Orlando's most recent trade transaction came in the form of a draft-day deal with the Los Angeles Clippers. The Magic received a 2026 second-round pick from LA in exchange for 6-foot-4 guard Jason Preston, who the Magic selected 33rd overall in the draft. Preston, 22, averaged 16.8 points, 6.4 rebounds, and 7.4 assists as a sophomore with Ohio last season.

What Is The Best Magic Roster Of All-Time?

The Magic's best roster in franchise history has to be the team they fielded in the 1994-95 season. A 22-year-old Shaquille O'Neal, in just his second year in the league, led Orlando all the way to the Finals that year. He had quite a supporting cast as well in Anfernee Hardaway, Nick Anderson, Horace Grant, and Dennis Scott, to name a few.

That year, the Magic won 57 games as they finished first in the East. Come playoff time, they defeated the Boston Celtics in the first round and then eliminated a returning Michael Jordan and his Chicago Bulls in the second round. They came out on top of the Eastern Conference Finals following an epic seven-game series against Reggie Miller and the Indiana Pacers. Unfortunately, they proved no match to the Houston Rockets in the Finals, as Hakeem Olajuwon and Co. swept their way to their second consecutive NBA championship.

Since being founded in 1990, the Magic have reached the Finals twice. The second time Orlando reached the pinnacle was when Dwight Howard led them to the 2009 Finals, only to fall to Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers.

What Is The Magic's Salary Cap?

The Orlando Magic enter the 2021-22 season with a total cap of $132.4 million, per spotrac. Unless the Magic make the necessary adjustments to lower down their threshold, this team will operate over the cap by roughly $20 million.

Orlando's highest-paid player is Gary Harris, who will be pocketing $20.5 million this coming season. Jonathan Isaac ($17.4 million), Markelle Fultz ($16.5 million), and Terrence Ross ($12.5 million) are the three other players on the team who will be earning more than $10 million next year. Second-year big man Mo Bamba rounds out the Top 5 with a salary of $7.6 million.
