Four Magic players on 10-day contracts had those deals expire overnight on Sunday. Two of those players – guard Hassani Gravett and big man Admiral Schofield – signed new 10-day pacts on Monday using hardship exceptions, the team announced in a press release. The other two – Aleem Ford and B.J. Johnson – are now free agents.
Gravett and Schofield were both thrust into rotation roles immediately for a Magic team hit hard by injuries and COVID-related absences.
In his first 10 days with the club, Gravett started two of five games, averaging 7.6 PPG, 3.4 RPG, and 2.4 APG in 24.8 minutes per game. The 6’2″ guard posted an impressive .450 3PT% during that time. Schofield, meanwhile, averaged 17.2 MPG in his five contests, putting up 5.8 PPG and 2.6 RPG.
Orlando still has six players in the health and safety protocols, so the team is eligible to carry several hardship additions. Freddie Gillespie and Tim Frazier are also currently on 10-day deals with the Magic.
