Their current PG is Jam Nelson and his contract will likely expire this season - as Magic has no reason to opt in his $8M contract for next year.

Unless Magic has a plan to acquire All-star level superstar (like Melo...) in their roster lineup, they have the most flexible salary cap and are the most possible team to land Lowry.
By all accounts Oladipo is their PG of the future... I'm pretty sure that guys like Nelson and Davis aren't in their plans (remains to be seen about Afflalo) so I can't see them bringing in Lowry. I think they'd throw big money at IT2 before that since he's young enough to match their core.
