This offseason, a lot of teams have much to gain if they make the right moves. The Knicks, Suns, Magic all could be big players in NBA Free Agency.
The NBA Finals are on the horizon which means most of the league is already mapping out their NBA Free Agency plans. Everyone will be looking to upgrade but some teams have more on the line than others. Two of these teams can end up being title contenders if they are able to make the right moves. The other team can make the playoffs this season, leading them to a brighter future.
Teams with the most to lose in NBA free agency: 3. Orlando Magic
The Orlando Magic head into this summer with tons of promise. They have two lottery picks in this draft (No. 6 and No. 11). Also, they have around $19 million in cap space this season, assuming they do not waive a handful of players with non-guaranteed contracts for next season.
They could re-sign Moe Wagner which would cut their cap space by a lot. Still, they will be able to add a solid rotational player to their team through their mid-level exception. Orlando is a team on the rise that could end up clinching a playoff seed this season if they are able to draft well this offseason and fill out the rest of the roster in free agency.
