“Jamahl and his staff have done a tremendous job not only this season, but since we hired him back in 2021,” Magic president of basketball operations Jeff Weltman said in a statement. “His preparation, work ethic, ability to connect with the players, and passion he brings to the job every day brings positive results, both on the court and off. We are very happy to have Jamahl lead the Magic for years to come.”

The Magic are 37-28 on the season. They are in fifth place in the Eastern Conference standings. Orlando is on pace to make the playoffs this year for the first time since 2020.
