Per Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel, forward Fran Vazquez is finalizing a new contract with Unicaja Málaga in Spain.
Vazquez’s agent, José Cobelo, confirmed the agreement.
There were rumors Orlando may be interested in finally bringing Vazquez over, but Cobelo said the Magic “didn’t have much interest, so they didn’t affect our situation.”
Vazquez, the 11th overall pick in 2005 draft, is now 29 years old, meaning he’ll be 31 when his contract is up again. Cobelo said then it is “possible that, yes, he could still come.”
