Rudy Gobert has chosen to re-sign with the Orlando Magic. Orlando has been a home for Rudy ever since he was drafted by them from France in 2013. He came in at the ground level of a rebuild and slowly but surely worked together with the organisation to build. The process has finally paid off this last season where the Magic acquired a dynamic co-star in Victor Oladipo and were able to secure a long term commitment from him. Along with Dennis Shroeder, Evan Fournier and Derrick Favors we see a well rounded team chock full of young players in Rudy's timeline.
While the fit was good, the level of comfort in Orlando was really what sealed his decision. They have never traded Rudy and believed in him as a raw prospect, then when the time came for his free agency they stepped up with a fantastic pitch and offered the money he deserves. He is thrilled to return to the only team he has ever known.
Year 1: $25,467,250 Year 2: $27,377,294 Year 3: $29,287,338 Year 4: $31,197,381 Year 5: $33,107,425 (Player option)
The re-signing of Mr. Gobert brings a tear to the eyes of all Magic fans. He has quickly become the face of Orlando basketball, coming off of a rookie contract which saw him turn into the best defensive player in the league, and it is admirable his humility to share his stardom with players who have more recently decided to call Orlando home, such as Victor Oladipo and the newest member of the team, Mr. Otto Porter. He is a great man, a great basketball player, and an unbelievable representative of his homeland and of his home in Orlando.
We would like to thank Mr. Scalabrine for his work ensuring the best situation for his client and our team’s defensive leader; his communication throughout the process was stellar and we know Rudy was happy to have been represented by him.

Jared Montini: Hey @everyone, we will be opening up a new NBA Live based league for sign up this Friday. The league will start with IRL rosters but use D5’s ratings and sim engine. Our vision is that this will be a continuation of the D5 legacy, but with a few upgrades
