After the Orlando Magic could not find a trade partner for power forward Glen “Big Baby” Davis and they chose to buy Davis out despite him being under contract for the 2014-15 season, they needed to fill out their roster.
They decided to bring in two prospects that were highly touted at one point in center Dewayne Dedmon and swingman Adonis Thomas, signing both to ten-day contracts.
Although both players have had trouble getting onto the court, the Magic must like something about each of them. According to Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel, the Magic will give each player a second 10-day contract when their current deals expire Thursday.
The Orlando Magic will re-sign center Dewayne Dedmon and swingman Adonis Thomas to second 10-day contracts, the Orlando Sentinel has learned.
Dedmon and Thomas were signed to their first 10-day contracts on Feb. 25, and those contracts will expire at 11:59 p.m. Thursday.
After those deals expire, the Magic must decide whether or not they will keep them for the rest of the season.
Dedmon has appeared in one game for the Magic. He scored three points and grabbed two rebounds in three minutes. Thomas is averaging 2.5 points and 1.0 rebounds in 6.5 minutes per game while appearing in two games.
