Magic Re-Sign Gary Clark To Two-Year Deal

NOVEMBER 23: The Magic have officially re-signed Clark, the team announced today in a press release.

NOVEMBER 21: The Magic have agreed to a new two-year contract with free agent forward Gary Clark, bringing him back for a second straight season, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski (Twitter link).

The agreement is worth $4.1MM, Wojnarowski adds, which suggests it’ll be worth slightly more than the minimum. The second year of the contract will include a team option, Roy Parry of the Orlando Sentinel tweets.

Orlando tipped its hand that it wanted to bring back Clark but extending him a $1.82MM qualifying offer, which made him a restricted free agent.

The Magic signed Clark after the Rockets waived him in early January. Clark, 25, appeared in 24 games for Orlando, averaging 3.6 PPG and 2.9 RPG in 14.8 MPG. Clark, who turned 26 earlier this week, played a total of 69 games with Houston after going undrafted out of Cincinnati.

    They legit brought back everyone with the exception of DJ Augustine? It’s like “Groundhog” version of a NBA team next year.

      Meanwhile the Lakers are doing the exact opposite.

      It must hard for them to find teammates for someone like LeBron.

      That’s not really true.

      Last year’s 1st Round Pick, Chuma Okeke, was out entire season. This year he’ll join 2020 1st pick, Cole Anthony. So that’s two new players.

      Ennis was picked up at trade deadline/All-Star break, a couple weeks later NBA shut down. Played only 18g for Magic, most of it in the bubble. So he’s basically a new player.

      2019-20 free agent signing, Al-Farouq Aminu, suffered season ending injury in few weeks of play. So he’s also basically a new player.

      The Magic also signed Dwayne Bacon.

      That’s 1/3 of roster that’s basically new, 4 of which will likely be top 10 rotation.

      PG: Fultz | Anthony | MCW
      SG: Fournier | Ross | Bacon
      SF: Aminu | Ennis |
      PF/SF: Gordon | Okeke | Clark | Isaac (INJ)
      C: Vucevic | Bamba | Birch

      On top of that, it won’t surprise anyone if both Aaron Gordon and Evan Fournier get traded during the season as both have been shopped.
