Magic Coach Jamahl Mosley 'Grateful' for Contract Extension

The Orlando Magic extended coach Jamahl Mosley through 2027-28.

The Orlando Magic is future-driven and has the brightest outlook in the entire league. Paolo Banchero and Franz Wagner are budding stars, Jalen Suggs and Jonathan Isaac are deadly defenders, and role players Cole Anthony, Wendell Carter Jr., and Moritz Wagner have all bought into the culture.

At the center of it all is Jamahl Mosley, who teaches defense, toughness, and a team-first mentality that avoids "hero ball" and just wins games.

Mosley was rewarded for his success in Orlando with a four-year extension that will keep him in East Florida through the 2027-28 NBA season. The Magic finished 13th in the Eastern Conference last season, but are firmly in the playoffs this year and is a team no one wants to face.

"I'm grateful to the DeVos family, Jeff Weltman, Alex Martins," Mosley said. "For them, being able to believe in what we've done together, what this group continues to do, our players, our staff, and how much they understand what a great group it is to be a part. We've said it's going to be special from the beginning...For them to continue to have the belief in what we're doing says a lot."

Magic fans should be elated by the news. Mosley is building a core of players who all want to win and is instilling winning values into a franchise that is starving for success. With Banchero and Wagner only 21 and 22 years old, this version of the Magic is the worst version the NBA will see for a long time.

What's to expect next? A deep playoff run and eventual championships, plural.
