NBA Rumors: Nikola Vucevic wants to return to Orlando Magic

The Orlando Magic are entering an offseason where they will have two lottery picks and the chance to rebound next season with a roster of young core talent. But while the team is looking at names like Dante Exum, Dario Saric and Joel Embiid, there are a few names already on the roster that need attending to.

One of those names is center Nikola Vucevic, who the Magic have an opportunity to extend his rookie contract through this season and must decide on that soon. While it’s a decision the Magic need to make, Vucevic has weighed in and expressed his desire to stay in Orlando.

Per the Orlando Sentinel:

“I’d love to stay in Orlando,” Vucevic said. “I like it here a lot. I like the team. I like what we have going here. I like the coaches. I like everything. So I’d love to stay here, but I guess we should talk about that when the time comes.”

There’s a chance that the Magic take Joel Embiid if he’s on the board whenever they go on the clock but adding a center isn’t a need at the moment. Vucevic is coming into his own and the Magic must decide if he’s who they want leading them into the future.

    Why would anyone want anything to do with Amway? It is a scam:

    • will hall

      WTF does Amway have to do with paying basketball?

      • tex2

        That’s an easy question to answer. Rich DeVos, the scam artist that owns Amway also owns the Orlando Magic, has the “Amway” name plastered on the inside and outside of the basketball arena, and he PAYS the players to play. Any other questions?
