The NBA playoffs are approaching, which means it is time for some teams across the league to begin putting together their offseason plans, as not everyone makes the playoffs. 

After officially being eliminated from postseason contention, even though we could have told you this months ago, the Magic have a lot of work to do in the offseason as they look to rebuild themselves once more into a playoff hopeful. 

While they are only 18-51 this season, the Magic are still a highly competitive team that has a ton of young, talented players on their roster. 

Wendell Carter Jr., Cole Anthony, Jalen Suggs, and Franz Wagner are the main core pieces that come to mind for the Magic to build with moving forward, but Mo Bamba is another name that has emerged for them this season.

Now in his fourth NBA season, Mo Bamba was finally given the chance to start this season for the Magic and he has made the most of his opportunities in the final year of his rookie contract. 

In 58 games this year, 56 of which Bamba has started in, Mo Bamba has averaged 10.4 points, 8.0 rebounds, 1.7 blocks, and has shot 47.8% from the floor, 35.9% from three-point range. 

Against the 76ers earlier in the season, Bamba recorded a career-high 32 points on 7-8 shooting from three-point range and he recently had another high-scoring game against the Timberwolves, a game in which the young center finished with 27 points and 12 rebounds.

Bamba’s durability and his impact on the floor have been in question since he was drafted by the Magic, but he has proven that he can be their starting center this season and Mo Bamba is definitely going to get paid in the offseason! 

With the center market small, Bamba is one of the better frontcourt options available in free agency this season, which is why these three teams should already be eyeing him as a potential offseason acquisition.
