Jon Teske, Magic Agree To Deal

The Magic have agreed to a deal with Michigan big man Jon Teske, according to the Medina Gazette. The terms of the contract are unknown but it’s likely to be an Exhibit 10 deal.

Teske, 23, is coming off his senior season with Michigan in which he posted his best numbers to date. The 7’1″, 265-pound Teske averaged 11.6 PPG and 6.7 RPG as a senior. For his collegiate career, the Medina, Ohio, native averaged 6.6 PPG and 4.8 RPG while making over half of his shot attempts (50.1%).

“It’s the best fit for me right now as a player,” Teske said of joining the Magic. “A couple other teams were interested, but for me to showcase my talents and play within my skills, it’s a big advantage going there.”

If Teske’s pact turns out to be an Exhibit 10, it will be a non-guaranteed one-year, minimum salary contract. The deal allows a bonus of up to $50K if he is waived and remains on the franchise’s G League squad for at least 60 days.
