The Orlando Magic have been very busy prior to the trade deadline on Thursday afternoon.
As a matter of fact, they’re open to trading franchise center Nikola Vucevic.
Sources: Orlando continues to listen to offers on All-Star Nikola Vucevic, but it would take a substantial package to pry him. As the Magic drill down on Aaron Gordon trades, an additional move w/ Vucevic for assets would set franchise toward more substantial long-term retooling.

Vucevic, 30, has been linked in trade rumors for the last few weeks.
However, the Magic reportedly don’t plan to trade him unless they can fetch a massive offer. After all, Vucevic is having one of his best campaigns of his career.
The two-time All-Star is collecting a career-best 24.5 points in addition to 11.8 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game this season.
Although Vucevic is having an amazing personal year, his team is slipping in the standings. The Magic are the No. 14 seed in the Eastern Conference with an abysmal 15-29 record.
