Magic Could Discuss Extensions For Vucevic, Harris After Initial Free Agency

The Orlando Magic's officials likely won't make a decision on whether to pursue contract extensions for Nikola Vucevic and Tobias Harris until after they see how free agency impacts the salary cap.

Vucevic and Harris will be eligible for extensions this summer.

"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."
