Magic Sign Amile Jefferson To Two-Way Contract

AUGUST 7: The deal between the Magic and Jefferson is now official, per a team release.

JULY 27: The Magic have reached a two-way contract agreement with forward Amile Jefferson, Michael Scotto of The Athletic tweets.

The former Duke power forward was on the Timberwolves’ roster last season. He signed a two-way contract in January, then received a standard contract late in the regular season. However, Jefferson never appeared in any games.

Jefferson, 25, went undrafted last June and joined the Timberwolves for training camp. After being waived by the team prior to the start of the regular season, Jefferson joined the G League’s Iowa Wolves.

In 47 games, Jefferson averaged 17.8 PPG and 12.8 RPG for Iowa, making shots at a 62.4% rate. He set a new NBAGL record by racking up 36 double-doubles.

Orlando now has both of its two-way slots filled. The other one is occupied by point guard Troy Caupain.

    Great rebounder, hard worker, smart guy. Not much of an offensive game outside the paint but at Duke he was a glue guy. Great PnR defender and max effort every possession.

        Not as big as Taj but definitely some similarities. Really good leader at Duke too

  3. A good guy that deserves to be in the league, my only question is Orlando has got already Isaac & Gordon at the 4 & Vucevic, Bamba & Mozgov at the 5, not sure they needed more inside, more need at the backcourt. But again I am sure they will make a trade, otherwise looks like Bamba will be coming off the bench, cannot see them benching Vucevic, he was too good for that last year, hence why they need to trade him.
