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.
A team may sign individual players to two 10-day contracts during a single season.
After the end of a second 10-day contract, the team has the choice of signing the player for the remainder of the season or letting the player return to the free-agent pool.
Dedmon, who had prior NBA regular-season experience with the Golden State Warriors and Philadelphia 76ers, has played in one game for the Magic for a total of three minutes.
Thomas has played in two games for the Magic. He made his NBA regular-season debut during Saturday night’s loss to the Miami Heat. He played almost nine minutes during Sunday night’s win over the 76ers.
“It’s a dream come true,” Thomas said when asked about those two games.
Thomas and Dedmon took part in their second official Magic practice today.
