Financial situation in relation to the salary cap

  • The Luxury Tax threshold is set at $150,267,000 this year
  • NBA salary cap set at $123,655,000 this year

With $126,032,665 contractually committed this yearthe Magic manages its money very well between its young nuggets in full growth and executives like Terrence Ross or Gary Harris whose cases will have to be examined during the year.

It will be necessary to consider paying handsomely for the infirmary as well, which is one of the busiest places of the 21st century, ahead of the Eiffel Tower and YouTube. Jonathan Isaac and Markelle Fultz have played 26 games in total over the last two seasons, I repeat: 26 games, in total, over the last two seasons. Still good work despite everything from John Hammond and his associates who don’t splurge in Florida, with players paid at their fair value, provided they manage to put one foot in front of the other without tearing or twisting their legs. ‘one of the two.

Players under guaranteed contracts for the 2023-24 season:

  • Jonathan Isaac
  • Markelle Fultz
  • Wendell Carter Jr.
  • Paolo Banchero
  • Caleb Houstan

What is 2m11 and has been waiting to see the floors for 2 years? Jonathan. The winger who makes fans fantasize with his Antetokounmpesque physique and his defensive skills should (finally) play again this season and secure his wheat (see below). Markelle Fultz isn’t the expected 1st draft pick (will he ever be?) but he’s doing a lot of favors for the Magic and progressing slowly, at the pace of his franchise, just like interior pair Mo Bamba. and Wendell Carter Jr. Bamba, who replaced his counterpart, will however have everything to prove since his pay will not be guaranteed the following season. This is also the case of the intriguing Bol Bol, who definitely does not manage to show more than flashes on the ground. Kids Jalen Suggs, Franz Wagner, Cole Anthony, Chuma Okeke and RJ Hampton are all still under rookie contract and will all have a team option at the end of this season.

Three players to watch this season:

The Human Torch is entering his sixth full season with the Magic after a tough final season (his career-worst long-range percentage). He will be a free agent at the end of the season and at 31, the bouncing winger will surely want to seek a last big / medium contract in a team more competitive than this young Magic in reconstruction. It is hard to imagine John Hammond retaining him and offering him a jackpot given that he is already 31 years old and that a departure would suit both camps. In the last year of his contract, Ross will surely want to perform to increase his rating and the Magic will surely want to trade him during the season to recover assets and not lose him at the end of the season for nothing.

The extremely high-potential hasn’t played since the 2019-20 season, but we’re not giving up hope on the Magic side to reveal Isaac as the basketball monster he was destined to become. Sticky as hell, the 2m11 winger has cotton knees and unfortunately for him, his long absence has hurt his contract, which becomes partially guaranteed and then unguaranteed until 2025. If he wants to keep his mesh, he will need to be in good shape and – beyond performing – set foot on the ground. If he becomes the star we’ve been waiting for, there’s no doubt he’ll land a huge contract sooner or later. For now, just play basketball, Jonathan, that’s all we want.

The bigger (and less good) of the two Wagner brothers is struggling to launch his career and will reach the end of his contract next summer. Far from being flawless on the field, whether in attitude or in performance, Mo will quickly have to raise the bar this season if he does not want to find himself empty-handed next off-season. If he manages to show himself with his mobile interior profile capable of shooting from afar, he could claim a new contract in the League and thus continue the NBA adventure.
