Nikola Vucevic: I’m Happy Where I Am

The Orlando Magic have suffered a number of injuries this season, limiting the upside of a team that would have to battle hard for a playoff spot either way.

But Nikola Vucevic remains happy with the Magic.

“I’m happy where I am,” Vucevic answered when asked if he wishes he were playing for a title contender. “When I re-signed with the Magic, I knew it was going to be a process and I knew we weren’t going to turn into a championship team right away… It’s unfortunate we’ve had all of these injuries. I think we are headed in the right direction, but we have lost two very important players – Markelle (Fultz) and J.I. (Jonathan Isaac) – for the season. If we were healthier, our goals would be much different and we could achieve much more. But that’s just part of the journey. Unexpected things are going to happen.”

Vucevic has two more seasons remaining on his contract.
