The 22-year-old forward has agreed to a new four-year, $84 million contract with the Magic, according to a report from ESPN. Gordon, who has spent all four of his NBA seasons in Orlando, was a restricted free agent.

Gordon announced he was returning to Orlando on his Twitter account.

Has there been a less consistent player than Harper? At his best, like he was in 2015 when he won the MVP award, he’s capable of historic numbers: He put up 10.0 WAR that Authentic Darren Woodson Jersey season. In 2016, his WAR was 1.5. His plummeting batting average this season isn’t helping his reputation as a player who can’t put back-to-back great seasons together, let alone the back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back you’d want from a $400 million player.

Predicting the market: Gaylord Perry Womens Jersey If Harper ends up with mediocre numbers, that could potentially bring more teams into the bidding process.

Fellow Australian Dante Exum was not so quick to re-sign with the Utah Jazz.

The Salt Lake Tribune reported the Jazz have a meeting set up with the point guard and are keen to reach a deal with him.

The Jazz presented Exum, a restricted free agent, with a $US6.6 million qualifying offer earlier in the week to stay in Utah and can match offers from rival teams.

The NBA contract landscape has changed since the recent boom years when Australia’s Joe Ingles (four years, $US52 million with the Jazz), Patty Mills (four years, $US50 million, San Antonio Spurs) and Matthew Dellavedova (four years, $US38.4 million, Milwaukee Bucks) signed huge deals after an increase in the salary cap following the NBA signing a lucrative new broadcast deal.

Most teams are now over their salary cap so NBA role players now struggle to secure such big paydays.

Superstars, however, are still cashing in.
