The 2023-24 NBA season saw the Orlando Magic return to the playoffs for the first time in four years. It was a big step forward for the franchise and showed that youngsters Paolo Banchero and Franz Wagner are legitimate stars to build a perennial playoff contender around.

The organization reportedly could have as much as $60 million in cap space this season, and have five first-round picks over the next three years to use as trade assets. With the team having the resources to make some big additions this offseason, let’s look at 10 players the Orlando Magic could target on the free agent and trade market, as well as in the 2024 NBA Draft.
