Magic Close To Deal With Greg Stiemsma

The Magic are close to reaching an agreement with veteran center Greg Stiemsma, Darren Wolfson of 1500 ESPN reports (on Twitter). The length and terms of the proposed pact are unknown, though it is likely a minimum salary training camp deal, and Wolfson does note that it would be a non-guaranteed contract.

Stiemsma, 29, appeared in 17 contests for the Raptors in 2014/15, averaging 0.8 points, 0.9 rebounds, and 0.2 assists in 3.9 minutes per contest. His career numbers through 203 games are 3.2 PPG, 3.3 RPG, and 1.1 BPG to accompany a slash line of .509/.000/.705.

Orlando currently has a roster count of 17 players, including 13 with fully guaranteed pacts. The Magic could certainly benefit from adding some depth at the pivot, with Dewayne Dedmon and Jason Smith being the primary backups to starter Nikola Vucevic.
