Orlando Magic Sign Trio Of Players

Isaac and the Magic have agreed to a five-year, $84 million contract. Isaac was entering the final year of his contract before the extension.

Drafted by the Magic in the first round of the 2017 NBA Draft, Isaac’s first three seasons were plagued by injuries, causing him to miss two and a half years of action from 2020-2022.

In 2023-2024, Isaac played 58 games, the most since 2018-2019. Isaac became a key member of Orlando’s bench, averaging 6.8 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 1.2 blocks.

At 6’10”, Isaac’s versatility on the defensive side was his biggest strength, making him one of the team’s best defenders.

Besides Isaac, the Magic re-signed Wagner to a two-year, $22 million deal on Tuesday. Wagner declined an $8 million option for the coming season before agreeing to a new deal.

Wagner, the older brother of Magic forward Franz, averaged 10.9 points and 4.3 rebounds on 60.1% shooting. Like Isaac, Wagner is a pivotal rotation player who comes off the bench.

Orlando Magic Looking To Build On Last Season’s Success

The future is bright for the Orlando Magic. After four consecutive seasons of finishing under .500, the Magic finished 2023-2024 with a record of 47-35, qualifying for the Eastern Conference playoffs as the No. 5 seed.

The Magic fell to the Cleveland Cavaliers in seven games in the opening round of the playoffs.

Despite the playoff failure, the Magic have established a culture with a young core led by forwards Paolo Banchero and Franz Wagner.

Besides re-signing their own players, the biggest acquisition made by the Magic was signing guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope to a three-year, $66 million deal.
