Nikola Vucevic is set to become a free agent in July. In his seventh season with the Orlando Magic he made it to the playoffs, but struggled in the series versus the Toronto Raptors and his team was eliminated in five games. “Obviously I’ve had a great seven years here, but at the same time, we’ll see what happens” the 28-year-old Montenegrin center said to Orlando Sentinel.

“It’s a mutual decision, and it’s not just me” Vucevic also mentioned and added: “They have to decide what they want to do. Based on that, we’ll go from there. I wish I knew what would happen. I wish I had a contract in hand. It would be all over right now.”

President Jeff Weltman clarified: “Bringing Vooch back is a priority” and added: “Vooch is going to have a lot of teams who will make him a priority for them, too. We will meet with his representatives at the appropriate time. Hopefully we can get something done. It’s the NBA, and I always say there’s a lot of real estate between the intentions and what gets done.”
