That all but removes them from making the playoffs for the seventh year in a row.
As the team full of players that nobody in the NBA wants crawls toward the finish of one of the worst seasons in team history, some in the team's front office are probably eyeing potential free agents to add this summer to improve the team's, ahem, win situation.
Yeah, Tobias Harris has been a great addition, but he's playing on a bad team who can afford to pay him in minutes. Jameer Nelson has creaky knees, sore hamstrings and every other injury that hinders him from advancing the ball beyond half court.
Flatly, the Magic have problems.
Can free agency solve some of those issues? Meh, maybe, but not all. Even if there are five or six players in transition after this season, the Magic's salary cap situation may prevent them from being as aggressive as they would like.
As it currently stands, the Magic are holding a broad total of over $54 million in salary.
Because of that, we're forced to remember that when Orlando dodges players like Chris Paul and Josh Smith, it is probably because the Magic can't write a check that large.
After the jump, check out a short list of players the Magic can realistically hunt this summer.
