The 2005-06 Orlando Magic season was the team's 17th in the NBA. They began the season hoping to improve upon their 36-46 output from the previous season. They matched it exactly, finishing 36-46, but failed to qualify for the playoffs for the second straight season.[1]

Grant Hill, who was voted as an All-Star last year, was hampered by injuries and was only able to play 21 games this season. In February, Steve Francis was suspended for conduct detrimental to the club and the Magic eventually traded him to the New York Knicks.
