The Orlando Magic will sign former Memphis Tigers standout Adonis Thomas to a 10-day contract on Monday, report L. Jason Smith of the Memphis Commercial Appeal and Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel. Inking Thomas will allow Orlando to fill the roster spot vacated when it bought Glen Davis out of his contract Friday.

Thomas will join the Magic for their game Tuesday against the Washington Wizards, according to Smith and Robbins.

In 21 games for the Springfield Armor of the NBA D-League, Thomas averaged 16.2 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 1.3 assists on 46.3 percent shooting from the field and 46.9 percent shooting from three-point range. On February 10th, Thomas tallied season-highs in scoring (33) and rebounding (15) in a win over the Bakersfield Jam.

The Armor list the 20-year-old at 6-foot-6 and 232 pounds.

Thomas played two seasons at Memphis, averaging 10.7 points and 4.5 rebounds per game on 42.6 percent shooting from the floor.
