Jonathan Isaac has missed the entirety of the last two seasons. As such, the final three years of his contract with the Orlando Magic have become partially guaranteed. Isaac’s salary was initially fully guaranteed at $17.4 million per season through 2024-25. Because Isaac didn’t meet games played thresholds specified in his deal, his final three seasons now have varying guaranteed amounts.
The 2022-23 is partially guaranteed at $16 million. 2023-24 is guaranteed for just $7.6 million. And the final season, in 2024-25 is now fully non-guaranteed. Isaac's cap hit will remain $17.4 million per season, as Orlando will only receive cap relief if Isaac is waived. There's no indication that waiving the versatile forward is on the table at this time. Isaac recently said he's feeling good and hopes to be fully available to play at the start of next season.
Josh Robbins: Jonathan Isaac when asked about his reaction to last night's Biz trade: "I was surprised just at the type of trade it was, a three-team trade. And it's tough, man. Biz is a great guy. He's one of the great leaders on our team and brought it every night. So I'm sad to see him go."

Since these bench decorum issues generally have been resolved after the league intervenes, technical fouls have not been used a deterrent, and the league does not plan to start issuing techs during the conference finals. However, the topic will be discussed in the offseason, and the league will explore ways to address bench decorum during games in real time, a person with knowledge of the situation told USA TODAY Sports.
