Dewayne Dedmon RumorsAll NBA Players
The Orlando Magic announced Monday the signings of four players for training camp, which gets underway Tuesday at the Amway Center practice floor. Joining the Magic, who have 14 players with guaranteed deals and a 15th, Dewayne Dedmon, without a guarantee are Kadeem Batts, Drew Crawford, Seth Curry, and Peyton Siva word.
Dedmon told Fox Sports Florida during a pregame interview that he chose to wear 3 on his Magic jersey because he was hoping his third NBA team would be the team that gave him a chance to remain in the NBA for an extended period of time. He’s happy with that choice. And with his opportunity. “It did stick for the rest of the year,” Dedmon said, smiling. “I got the rest of the year guaranteed, so it works.”
