Jonathan Isaac may not be available to play at all this upcoming season but the Orlando Magic still believe he'll be a vital piece in the franchise's future.
ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski confirmed Isaac has reached a four-year extension with the Magic, worth at least $80 million.

The forward suffered a torn ACL during the 'seeding games' at the NBA campus in Orlando and the franchise President Jeff Weltman, stated that the 22 year-old will miss the entire 2020-21 season.
Isaac, who suffered a knee injury in January and missed 31 games, was not expected to play again last season, but the team gave him the green light to make his comeback during the Orlando restart.
Prior to his initial injury, Isaac was a legitimate All-NBA defensive team candidate, averaging at least 2 blocks and 1.5 steals per game.
He was also shooting a career-high 47% from the field and 34% from 3-point range.
