The Orlando Magic announced Friday that they've re-signed center Dewayne Dedmon and swingman Adonis Thomas to second 10-day contracts. Orlando initially inked the pair of rookies to 10-day deals on February 25th, and those pacts expired Thursday night at 11:59 PM.

Dedmon has played four minutes over two games for Orlando, tallying five points and three rebounds on 2-of-3 shooting. In three appearances, Thomas has logged 23 minutes and shot 3-of-9 from the floor for seven points.

Orlando is the third team for Dedmon, 24, in his rookie season; he previously played for the Golden State Warriors and Philadelphia 76ers. Orlando called him up from the Santa Cruz Warriors of the NBA D-League, for whom he averaged 15.2 points, 13.5 rebounds, 1.5 steals, and 2.3 blocked shots on 54 percent shooting.

Thomas, meanwhile, came from the D-League's Springfield Armor. In 26 games there, including 21 starts, he averaged 16.2 points and 4.2 rebounds per game on 46.3 percent shooting from the floor and 46.9 percent shooting on three-pointers.
