Two players with Orlando Magic ties signed deals with new teams Thursday.
Jameer Nelson, the point guard who spent the first 10 years of his career with the Magic, inked a contract with the Dallas Mavericks, the team announced. The 6-footer's Magic tenure came to a close in July when the team waived him in order to clear a roster spot and to realize some salary-cap savings. With the Mavs, Orlando's all-time assists leader figures to jockey against Raymond Felton and Devin Harris for the starting point guard role.
Meanwhile, 2013 second-round Draft choice Romero Osby announced via Instagram that he's inked a deal with Le Mans Sarthe, a club based in France. "#ToGodBeTheGlory," Osby wrote in part. The Oklahoma product never logged a minute for the Magic, as Orlando chose to keep Solomon Jones instead following training camp.
Osby played for the Magic's Orlando Pro Summer League entry in 2014, averaging 8.7 points and two rebounds in three appearances.
