Nikola Vucevic was a hot commodity after his first All-Star season and according to multiple reports, the Magic are keeping him, as the two sides have agreed on a four-year deal for $100 million.

Vucevic will become the second player in franchise history to receive a nine-figure commitment from the Magic, joining Rashard Lewis, who signed a six-year deal for $118 million in 2007.

Vucevic doubled his salary since he made $12.25 million this year while guiding the Magic to their first playoff spot in seven seasons.

The $25 millions per season is one of the biggest contracts given ever to a European player.
