Hezonja was originally selected by the Magic with the fifth pick in the 2015 NBA Draft. He has struggled with consistency and poor shooting numbers throughout his first three NBA seasons.

Orlando did not pick up Hezonja's fourth-year option, making him an unrestricted free agent this summer.

The Magic selected Texas center Mohamed Bamba with the sixth pick in last month’s draft.
