Otis Smith, the Orlando Magic's President of Basketball Operations, has one season remaining on his contract with the team, but he's yet to decide if he'll return to fulfill it, reports Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel.

"I haven't gotten into it," Smith said of his decision prior to Orlando's playoff ouster at the hands of the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday. "I'll have a conversation with a few people following the end of the season, and we'll see where we go from there."

Smith received a promotion to his current title at the end of the 2009/10 season. He became the team's General Manager in the 2005/06 season after one year sharing GM duties with Dave Twardzik, who's remained with the team as an Assistant General Manager since that time.

Orlando's enjoyed great success with Smith making personnel moves, including making the second NBA Finals appearance in team history, but some of his more recent decisions--notably signing Chris Duhon and Quentin Richardson prior to the 2010/11 season, and trading Rashard Lewis for Gilbert Arenas in December 2010--have proven unwise.

Smith and coach Stan Van Gundy have one year remaining on their contracts. Van Gundy already indicated he would like to stay to honor that contract.
