Magic pick up option on Vucevic

The Orlando Magic picked up the third-year option on the contract of center Nikola Vucevic for the 2013-14 season.

Vucevic is entering his second NBA season and first with the Magic, who acquired him from Philadelphia in August as part of the four-team deal that sent Dwight Howard to the Lakers.

In 51 games, including 15 starts, during his rookie campaign with the 76ers, Vucevic averaged 5.5 points and 4.8 rebounds.
