The Orlando Magic agreed to an extension with Jonathan Isaac and Markelle Fultz on Monday, locking up two previous lottery picks in the 2017 NBA draft.
Isaac agreed to a four-year $ 80 million deal, his agent Jeff Wechsler told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. According to his agent, Raymond Brothers of Roc Nation Sports, Fultz agreed to a three-year extension of $ 50 million.
“We are thrilled to keep both brands [Fultz] and Jonathan [Isaac] in a Magic uniform, “said Jeff Weltman, president of the basketball division, in a statement,” Both have very bright futures and mean a lot to our organization both on and off the pitch. “
23-year-old Isaac tore a cruciate ligament in his left knee when the NBA restarted in Orlando, Florida in August. The injury, which occurred shortly after his return from hyperextension in the same knee, ended a breakout season prematurely for Isaac.
The 6-foot-11 man posted career highs across the board last season. He joined Anthony Davis and Dwight Howard as the only players who averaged two blocks and 1.5 steals per game in a single season that decade, playing just 28.8 minutes per game.
To live up to his defensive strength, Isaac averaged 11.9 points and shot 34% to 2.8 3s per game.
Fultz, 22, reinvigorated his NBA career with Magic, which acquired him with the Philadelphia 76ers in February 2019.
A confusing nerve condition in his neck and shoulder meant Fultz only played 33 games with the Sixers in two seasons, but the point guard was much more durable in Orlando.
In 72 games for Magic last season, he averaged 12.1 points and 5.1 assists.
