The Orlando Magic have no intention of selling fifth-year center Mo Bamba, but if an NBA team is interested in taking care of the six-foot-tall man, a contender must give up at least one first-round draft pick .

“League executives expect Orlando to await a protected first-round pick or a late first-round pick to part with the rim’s 24-year presence,” said Jake Fischer of Yahoo Sports.

According to some NBA betting sites, the Magic have the sixth lowest odds of winning the championship in 2023. If Orlando is below .500 with Mo Bamba, the team is likely worse off without him.

“There are teams like the Lakers and Clippers and Toronto, Sacramento and Brooklyn that front office staff expect to be snooping around the big man market before the February 9th trading close,” Fischer continued. “And this might be ready to cough up a pair of second-round decisions for Bamba. Chicago have also been considering their post-Vucevic options as his contract expires at the end of the season.”

In 26 appearances this season, Bama is averaging 8.2 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game. He’s also 38.7% off the arc and a career-best 50% on the field.

Last season, Bama averaged career highs of 10.6 points, 8.1 boards, 1.2 assists, and 1.7 blocks per game. He also shot 48% from the ground and 38.1% from 3-point range.

While the Magic Center isn’t as dominant in color as it was last season, the University of Texas product still serves as an excellent support for Bol Bol and Wendell Carter Jr.

On November 19, Bama scored a season-high 21 points in 34 minutes in Orlando’s 114-113 loss to the Indiana Pacers. In addition to nine boards, the 24-year-old shot 6 of 14 (42.9%) off the field and pocketed three 3-pointers.

But is the center worth a first-round pick? That’s the ultimate question. So far this season, Bama has missed six games. The center also stayed goalless in 19 minutes of play in the Magic’s 95-92 win over the Boston Celtics on Sunday. Although he finished with six rebounds and three blocks.

Of course, Bama is only logging 19 minutes per game this season. During his breakout season, he averaged 25.7 minutes per game in 71 games and 69 starts. Either the fifth-year player is better with more playing time, or he’s lost a step.
