At least a few members in the Magic’s prior front office regarded Biyombo as an upgrade over Vucevic on the defensive end and in overall spirit and leadership. That explains why, in July 2016, the team signed Biyombo to a four-year contract worth $17 million a season, a deal that constrains the franchise’s salary-cap flexibility and now, in hindsight, looks utterly outlandish. Last season, Biyombo received an opportunity to wrest the starting center job from Vucevic, but Biyombo didn’t hold onto the job. Biyombo was a liability on the offensive end, and the defense struggled even when he was on the court. Vucevic is in the next-to-last year of a four-year contract that pays him $12.25 million this season and will pay him $12.75 million in 2018-19.

Look for Hammond to shuffle the deck now that he’s the new Magic GM. NBA officials said Hammond has been working the phones, trying to move point guard Elfrid Payton and veteran centers Nikola Vucevic and Bismack Biyombo. If Hammond is successful in moving Payton, it will likely impact the Magic’s draft plans. The consensus among NBA officials is the Magic will draft Florida State forward Jonathan Isaac with the sixth overall selection. However, if Payton is moved, the Magic may change plans at select North Carolina State point guard Dennis Smith.
