Free-agent swingman Yakhouba Diawara is set to work out for the Orlando Magic on Wednesday, reports Shams Charania of RealGM.com, citing "a league source." Diawara will work out with the Miami Heat, his former team, on Tuesday.

According to Charania, Diawara is unlikely to sign with an NBA club unless he secures a guaranteed contract. Otherwise, "the most likely outcome" is that he will sign with a Eurocup team.
