Orlando Magic Officially Re-Sign Adonal Foyle

New, comments

Predictably (thanks to yesterday's report by the Orlando Sentinel), the Orlando Magic have re-signed veteran center Adonal Foyle. From the team's press release:

ORLANDO -- The Orlando Magic have re-signed free agent center Adonal Foyle, General Manager Otis Smith announced today. Per team policy, terms of the deal are not disclosed.

Foyle played in 10 games last season with both the Magic and Memphis, averaging 1.7 ppg. and 2.6 rpg. in 6.2 minpg. He was traded to Memphis as part of the three-team deal that sent Rafer Alston to Orlando on Feb. 19, later waived by Memphis on Mar. 1, then re-signed by Orlando on Mar. 23.

Originally selected by Golden State in the first round (eighth overall) of the 1997 NBA Draft, Foyle (6'10", 270, 3/9/75) has appeared in 733 regular season games during his 12-year NBA career with Golden State, Orlando and Memphis, averaging 4.1 ppg., 4.7 rpg. and 1.63 blkpg. in 17.8 minpg. Foyle is Golden State's all-time franchise leader in blocked shots with 1,140.

The Magic should be glad to have Foyle, a top-notch defender and class-act human being, back in the fold.
