  • Magic's Mo Bamba: Returning to Orlando

    Bamba and the Magic agreed to terms Thursday on a two-year, $21 million contract, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.

    It appeared that Bamba would be seeking a new team for 2022-23 after the Magic didn't extend a qualifying offer to the big man prior to the league deadline, but the two sides seem to have reached an agreement after all, so Bamba will be back with the team that drafted him for his fifth NBA season. He averaged 10.6 points, 8.1 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.7 steals in 25.7 minutes per game last season, and he could push Wendell Carter for Orlando's starting center job in 2022-23 if he has a good offseason.

  • Magic's Mo Bamba: To become unrestricted free agent

    Bamba did not receive a qualifying offer from the Magic and will become an unrestricted free agent July 1, Keith Smith of Spotrac.com reports.

    Orlando selected Paolo Banchero with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2022 NBA Draft and Wendell Carter is also on the roster, so it seemed likely the Magic would move on from Bamba as part of its rebuild. Now that the deadline has passed without the team tendering a qualifying offer to Bamba, it appears the seven-footer will be with a new team for the 2022-23 season. In 71 games last season, he averaged 10.6 points, 8.1 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.7 steals in 25.7 minutes per contest.

  • Magic's Mo Bamba: Strong end of season

    Bamba notched 21 points (7-11 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 10 rebounds, one assist and two blocks over 28 minutes during Sunday's 125-111 win over the Heat.

    Bamba started in all but two of his 71 games this season and was impressive, as he delivered career-best numbers across the board. He averaged 10.6 points, 8.1 rebounds, 1.7 blocks, 1.2 assists and 0.5 steals per game this season.

  • Magic's Mo Bamba: Available and starting Sunday

    Bamba (ankle) will start Sunday's game against the Heat, Dan Savage of the Magic's official site reports.

    Bamba was listed as questionable for the finale after playing just four minutes during Thursday's loss to the Hornets, but he'll be available for the regular-season finale. Over his last eight appearances, he's averaged 12.6 points, 8.5 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.5 blocks in 24.4 minutes per game.

  • Magic's Mo Bamba: Questionable for finale

    Bamba (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Heat.

    Bamba practiced Saturday, which bodes well for his chances of playing in the finale. That said, if he's out, more minutes could be in store for Moritz Wagner and Robin Lopez.

  • Magic's Mo Bamba: Practices Saturday

    Bamba (ankle) participated in Saturday's practice session, Khobi Price of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

    Bamba sustained a right ankle sprain in Thursday's game against the Hornets, but it's encouraging that he was at practice a day before the regular-season finale. If he's unavailable Sunday against the Heat, Moritz Wagner and Chuma Okeke should see additional run.

  • Magic's Mo Bamba: Nursing sprained right ankle

    Bamba (ankle) is dealing with a sprained right ankle and will likely be questionable for the regular-season finale Sunday against Miami.

    Bamba departed Thursday night's game against the Hornets early in the first quarter and was swiftly ruled out for the remainder of the contest. While he'll have a pair of off days to recover before Sunday's finale, it wouldn't be a surprise if the Magic play it safe and hold him out of what's ultimately a meaningless contest against the top team in the East.

  • Magic's Mo Bamba: Catches fire from deep

    Bamba dropped 21 points (7-14 FG, 5-9 3PT, 2-4 FT), 12 rebounds, six blocks and three assists in a 120-115 win over Cleveland on Tuesday.

    Bamba buried all five of his three-pointers in the first quarter. The fourth-year center eclipsed 20 points for just the third time this season but notched his 19th double-double. Bamba was able to dominate after center Wendell Carter Jr. (wrist) was ruled out.

  • Magic's Mo Bamba: Double-doubles in blowout loss

    Bamba registered 13 points (5-13 FG, 3-8 3Pt) and 12 rebounds across 29 minutes during Sunday's 118-88 loss to the Knicks.

    While the Knicks broke the game open with a big third quarter, Bamba did what he could to help keep Orlando competitive, notching his second straight double-double and fourth in the last six games. The big man did fail to record a single block or steal, however.

  • Magic's Mo Bamba: Double-double in OT loss

    Bamba notched 18 points (7-14 FG, 4-6 3Pt), 13 rebounds, one block and two steals in 33 minutes during Saturday's 114-110 overtime loss to the Kings.

    The fourth-year center recorded at least one block in his fifth straight game while pulling down double-digit boards for the eighth time in the last 14. Bamba's averaging 12.1 points, 8.8 rebounds, 1.9 threes and 1.1 blocks over the latter stretch, and with Wendell Carter (wrist) now joining the ranks of injured frontcourt players for the Magic, his role doesn't figure to shrink any time soon.

  • Magic's Mo Bamba: Posts 15th double-double of season

    Bamba recorded 11 points (5-12 FG, 1-4 3Pt), 10 rebounds, two blocks and one assist during Wednesday's 118-102 loss to the Thunder.

    The center continued to be a factor off the glass with another solid, double-digit rebounding performance. It was Bamba's third time across his past four games in which he has grabbed at least 10 rebounds. His fine outing offensively also helped him accomplish his 15th double-double of the season.

    Bamba had seven points (3-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt), 10 rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal over 21 minutes during Sunday's 90-85 victory over the Thunder.

    Bamba was held in check on the scoreboard Sunday, but he racked up double-digit rebounds for the third time in the last five games. Although he's scored in double figures just twice across that span, he's averaged 11.4 points and 8.4 rebounds in 25.6 minutes per game during those five outings.

  • Magic's Mo Bamba: Available Sunday

    Bamba (calf) will start Sunday's contest against the 76ers.
