The Orlando Magic on Monday announced that they've signed rookie center Dewayne Dedmon for the rest of the 2013/14 season. Dedmon's second 10-day deal with the team expired Monday at midnight, leaving the Magic the option to either re-sign him or let him return to the free-agent pool.
Orlando did not re-sign rookie swingman Adonis Thomas on Monday, meaning the Memphis product will return to the Springfield Armor of the NBA D-League.
Dedmon, 24, played in three games with Orlando over the course of his two 10-day deals. In six minutes, he tallied seven points and three rebounds on 3-of-4 shooting from the floor. The undrafted USC product, known for his size and shot-blocking prowess, previously spent time with the Golden State Warriors and Philadelphia 76ers in his rookie season.
Thomas logged 24 minutes across four Orlando appearances. He scored seven points on 3-of-9 shooting to go with three rebounds and two assists.
Letting Thomas go leaves Orlando with 13 players under contract, equal to the NBA minimum.
