The Orlando Magic continue to listen to offers on All-Star Nikola Vucevic, but it would take a substantial package to pry him, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

As the Magic drill down on Aaron Gordon trades, an additional move with Vucevic for assets would set the franchise toward a more substantial long-term rebuild.

It was previously reported that the Boston Celtics were among the teams targeting Vucevic, but it would take a massive haul to acquire a player like him and the expectation is that he will remain with the Magic.

Vucevic is averaging 24.5 points, 11.8 rebounds and 3.8 assists, while shooting 48.0 percent from the field and 40.6 percent from three-point.

The 30-year-old has two more years remaining on his four-year, $90 million contract.

The Magic are more actively working to trade Gordon and Evan Fournier before the 3 p.m. ET deadline.
