The Orlando Magic intend to decline the $11 million contract option of forward Joe Ingles but could bring him back in free agency, ESPN reported Saturday.

Ingles, 36, and the team are expected to talk about a free-agent deal, per the report.

In his first season with the Magic in 2023-24, Ingles played in 68 games and averaged 4.4 points with 2.1 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game.

The Utah Jazz signed the 6-foot-9 Australia native as a free agent before the 2014 season, and he spent his first eight seasons in Salt Lake City, followed by one season with the Milwaukee Bucks.

He has career averages of 8.1 points, 3.1 rebounds and 3.6 assists in 704 games (313 starts).
