The Orlando Magic will guarantee Khem Birch’s $1.38 million salary for the 2018-19 season.
This was a no-brainer as Birch has a very small salary and considering he showed promise at the end of last season, finishing in the top-100 over the last two weeks with averages of 9.0 points, 6.9 rebounds and 1.0 blocked shots in around 20 minutes of action per night. Unfortunately for Birch, the Magic are stacked in the front court with Nikola Vucevic, Aaron Gordon, Jonathan Isaac, Bismack Biyombo and the No. 6 pick Mo Bamba on the roster. Khem will need that logjam to clear up if he has any hope for more playing time next season.
