Following a first playoff appearance since the departure of Dwight Howard, the Orlando Magic decided to go all-in with the current roster this summer as the team signed the veteran duo of Nikola Vucevic and Terrence Ross to new long-term deals.

The Magic also have plenty of young talent, and ESPN is reporting that the organization has exercised a trio of contract extensions:

The Orlando Magic exercised the fourth-year team options on guard Markelle Fultz and forward Jonathan Isaac and the third-year team option on center Mo Bamba. All three players are now signed through the 2020-21 season. Fultz's option was for $12.3 million.

Fultz has yet to play for the Magic following his trade from the Philadelphia 76ers. Isaac was a regular starter last season, while Bamba struggled for form and minutes during his rookie campaign.
