9:25am: The Magic and free agent forward Amile Jefferson have agreed to a new one-year deal, reports Shams Charania of The Athletic (Twitter link). Orlando made Jefferson an unrestricted free agent by withdrawing his two-way qualifying offer, but will bring him back anyway.
Jefferson, who spent the 2018/19 season on a two-way contract with the Magic, saw the majority of his playing time for the Lakeland Magic, Orlando’s G League affiliate. The former Duke Blue Devil averaged 18.1 PPG, 11.3 RPG, and 3.4 APG in 34 G League games (33.2 MPG), earning a spot on the All-NBAGL Third Team.
The details of Jefferson’s new deal aren’t yet known, but I wouldn’t expect the 26-year-old to get much – if any – guaranteed money from the Magic. An Exhibit 10 contract or even another two-way deal seem to be the likeliest possibilities.
