A frenzy of activity will grip the NBA when its free-agency period starts at 12:01 a.m. Monday, as general managers throughout the league start to recruit available players.

The Orlando Magic, on the other hand, are expected to sit on the sidelines.

At this specific stage in the team’s rebuilding project, the Magic have no plans to add significant long-term salary commitments other than their first-round draft pick, Victor Oladipo.

“I would say that I wouldn’t envision us making a huge splash this summer,” Magic general manager Rob Hennigan said. “We’ll probably swim in the kiddie pool.”

Magic officials don’t want to add veterans who would significantly cut into the playing time of the youngsters already on the roster. And, with the 2014 draft class expected to feature several potential franchise-cornerstone players, the Magic have an incentive to keep their roster relatively stagnant.

Team officials also want to enter the summer of 2014 with as much salary-cap space as possible to pursue high-priced free agents.

Still, the Magic may be forced to make some minor splashes in the weeks ahead if, as expected, the team buys out the contracts of Hedo Turkoglu and Al Harrington.

The Magic began today with 12 players under contract for the 2013-14 season: Arron Afflalo, Glen Davis, Maurice Harkless, Tobias Harris, Doron Lamb, E'Twaun Moore, Jameer Nelson, Andrew Nicholson, Kyle O'Quinn, Nik Vucevic, Turkoglu and Harrington.

When you add in the salary of Oladipo, who will sign a rookie-scale contract that will pay him almost $4.8 million in the year ahead, as well as the lingering guaranteed salary of Quentin Richardson, who was released prior to last season, the Magic have about $58.6 million in salary committed to the upcoming season.
