Nikola Vucevic is entering the final season of a four-year, $48 million extension he signed with the Orlando Magic in 2014.
Wth Vucevic on an expiring contract and the Magic having significant depth at center, there has been speculation of a possible trade.
“We have no designs on trading anyone right now,” Jeff Weltman said when asked about a potential trade involving Vucevic.
“That’s something that we’ll worry about later. Vooch is a high-quality player and an even higher-quality person. He’s very valuable to our team today, and he’s very valuable to what we want to be about going forward. So I wouldn’t even entertain those thoughts yet. We just hope to have a good season. We want to make progress, obviously, in the ‘W’ column but also [in] the way that we work, developing our players and starting to build something special here.”
