The Orlando Magic are set to bring back their All-Star centre, per multiple reports.

On the eve of free agency officially beginning, Shams Charania of The Athletic reported that Nikola Vucevic plans to sign a four-year contract worth $100 million to remain with the Magic.

ESPN's Bobby Marks would later confirm this in a separate report.

Last season, Vucevic led the Magic by averaging 20.8 points (on 51.8% shooting) to go along with 12.0 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game. He was named as a reserve in the 2019 All-Star Game, becoming the franchise's first All-Star since Dwight Howard in 2012.

Orlando finished the season with a 42-40 record, winning the Southeast Division and finishing seventh in the Eastern Conference in the process. The Magic were eliminated in five games by the eventual champion Toronto Raptors in the opening round of the postseason.

Vucevic will be 29-years-old next season and stands to serve as the franchise's cornerstone as it develops its young talent over the next four years.

Players can negotiate agreements with teams on Sunday, June 30 at 6:00 p.m. ET but contracts can't be officially signed until the July moratorium ends July 6
