Here is the breakdown for the Charlotte, Chicago and Orlando trade: The Bulls acquire the $1.65M non-guaranteed contract of Julyan Stone that has a August 1 guaranteed date. If Stone is waived, the cap space for Chicago will increase to $16M in room (if the Noah Vonleh hold is released). For Charlotte, Bismack Biyombo is under contract for the next two years with a cap hit of $17M per season. The Hornets now have $120.3M in salary and are $3.4M under the tax with 14 guaranteed contracts. Orlando gets much needed guard help with the $2.69M expiring contract of Jerian Grant. Like Biyombo, Timofey Mozgov has two years left with a cap hit of $16M and $16.7M.

Aaron Gordon, one of the biggest restricted free agents on the market this summer, said on Tuesday that he'd prefer to re-sign with the Orlando Magic and reiterated that he'd like a maximum contract. "Yeah definitely but we'll see how it goes," Gordon said when asked if he'd still like a max contract at the premiere of the Uncle Drew movie in New York City. "Whatever Orlando wants to do. As a restricted free agent, I completely trust (management)." Gordon said after the season that his ideal scenario is signing a max deal with the Magic, per the Orlando Sentinel. Orlando can offer Gordon a five-year contract this summer projected at $148 million. An opposing team can offer a four-year contract worth less annually and in total. Gordon, 22, said on Tuesday that he'd prefer to finalize the deal with Orlando quickly rather than talking to other teams. "Hopefully we just get it wrapped up with Orlando. That would be fantastic," said Gordon, who averaged 17.6 points, 7.9 rebounds and 2.9 assists in 58 games last season. Gordon stars alongside Kyrie Irving, Shaquille O'Neal, Reggie Miller, Chris Webber and Nate Robinson in Uncle Drew, which debuts on Friday.

Orlando will incur a $1M cap hit (could also be stretched for $333K over 3 years) for 2018-19 on the Shelvin Mack waiver. The Magic are right at the cap this offseason because of the $16.5M Aaron Gordon free agent hold.
