Magic Exploring Trade Market For Wendell Carter Jr, Markelle Fultz

Jan 14, 2024 5:33 PM

The Orlando Magic have been one of the league's surprises of the first half of the season. Orlando is firmly in the playoff picture and may be looking to bolster a run to the postseason.

That standing has Orlando exploring the trade market for Wendell Carter Jr. and Markelle Fultz.

Carter is making just over $13 million this season and has two years and $22.8 million remaining on his deal through 2025-26. The center has struggled with injuries for each of the last two seasons, missing 25 games last year and 26 games already this season.

Fultz is making $17 million in the final season of his contract. He's continued to be injury-prone while with Orlando and has appeared in only eight games this season.
