Overall, it was a solid season and a year of growth for Orlando who returned to the postseason for the first time in seven years. He rewarded Clifford and the Magic by re-signing for four years this summer in free agency. Nikola Vucevic earned his first All-Star nod and seemingly found a renewed role under Head Coach Steve Clifford which led to the big man averaging career bests in points (20.8), rebounds (12.0), and assists (3.8).
