Jameer Nelson on his future

“I do think about it a lot, but I don’t know what the future holds. I don’t know the plan. I just have to be patient and see that they are going to do because it’s the team’s option (with his contract).

“I would definitely like to stay with the Magic, but it’s a business and it’s up to these guys,’’ Nelson said. “I haven’t talked to them much about (the plan), so I don’t know what’s going to happen.”

Jameer Nelson as told to John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com.

Nelson is slated to make $8 million next season, but only $2 million of that contract is guaranteed. According to ShamSports, the Magic have until July 15, 2014 to either keep Nelson and guarantee the full amount or cut him and pay only $2 million. Despite Nelson’s longevity with the team and his solid play as a passer this year — he is ninth in the league with 7.0 assists per game — it is uncertain whether the Magic will move on and turn the reigns over to Victor Oladipo as point guard or whomever they draft.
