by October 22, 2014

The Orlando Magic have reportedly agreed to terms with big man Nikola Vuvevic, on a four-year, $54 million contract extension.

Vuvevic, 23, was acquired from the Philadelphia Sixers to replace Dwight Howard.

He averaged 13.6 points and 11.5 rebounds during his first two seasons with the Magic .

Per Yahoo! Sports and the Orlando Sentinel:

The Magic had until the end of Halloween to reach an extension to avoid Vucevic becoming a restricted free agent next summer where he would have been one of the top big men on the market.


Vucevic, who turns 24 on Friday, will make $2.9 million in the final year of his contract this season before making an average of $13.3 million per season in his new deal.
