The four-year, $32 million agreement between the Orlando Magic and power forward Channing Frye will become more friendly to the team's payroll figure as Frye's tenure progresses. According to an industry source with knowledge of the agreement, the Magic and Frye have structured the deal in such a way that Frye's annual salary will be at its highest during the 2014-15 season but will decrease by 4.5 percent each season after that. Since it's widely known that the deal is worth a total of $32 million, it only requires some computations to determine what Frye's annual salaries will be.

The Pistons announced Monday that Wright was leaving the Magic’s organization, where he started in 2006 as an intern. He rose to become the Magic’s director of college scouting. He worked in the organization while Pistons president of basketball operations and coach Stan Van Gundy was coaching the Magic. He jumped at the chance to join him in Detroit. “That was a big draw for me,” Wright said. “Knowing the type of person that he is, the work that he does, his consistency as a person and as a coach was a big draw for me so I get to work with him.” Detroit Free Press

Look for the Magic to sign an older player to give a bit more balance to the roster. Also, it’s possible the team will attempt to add another power forward. The team reportedly has given consideration to pursuing Toronto Raptors restricted free agent Patrick Patterson. Orlando Sentinel

In an expected move that makes the Orlando Magic even younger, the team waived 31-year-old power forward Jason Maxiell on Friday. Maxiell’s salary of $2.5 million for the 2014-15 season was fully unguaranteed if the team (or a team that had acquired him via trade) had waived him on or before July 10. By waiving him now, Maxiell’s salary is erased from the Magic’s cap figure for the upcoming season. Orlando Sentinel
