The 2011–12 Orlando Magic season was the 23rd season of the franchise in the National Basketball Association (NBA). The team finished in 6th place in the Eastern Conference with a 37–29 record in a regular season shortened by the lockout and an offseason where trade rumours that included starting center Dwight Howard abounded.[1] After the Magic's playoff loss against the Indiana Pacers in the first round of the 2012 NBA Playoffs, the Orlando franchise parted ways with head coach Stan Van Gundy and General Manager Otis Smith.[2] The Amway Center, the Magic's home court, was the venue of the 2012 NBA All-Star Game.

Many players signed with teams from other leagues due to the 2011 NBA lockout. FIBA allows players under NBA contracts to sign and play for teams from other leagues if the contracts have opt-out clauses that allow the players to return to the NBA if the lockout ends.[16] The Chinese Basketball Association, however, only allows its clubs to sign foreign free agents who could play for at least the entire season.[17]
