Report: Orlando Magic to sign Dewayne Dedmon for remainder of season
With Dewayne Dedmon and Adonis Thomas both having their second 10-day contracts expiring at 11:59 on Sunday night, the Magic were faced with a decision to either sign them for the remainder of the year or to let them return the free agent pool. Per Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel, the team will retain Dewayne Dedmon for the final 15 games of the season.

As @JoshuaBRobbins noted, I’m told Orlando will sign Dewayne Dedmon through the end of the season. Had opportunities with two other teams.

Note: I previously reported on Friday night that the Magic would not be retaining either player. I was told by a trusted source within the Magic organization that Dedmon would not be retained. For whatever reason that may be, that looks to obviously not be the case any longer.
