Olgun Uluc: More from Magnay’s agent: “…specialist decided not to operate (on bone spurs in his foot) in the end so he’d prefer to be in a team dynamic rather than train on his own with Summer League or Olympics around the corner.”
Olgun Uluc: Will Magnay currently has “multiple offers” from NBL teams, but “hasn’t decided if he’ll play or just train with a team”, his agent, Michael Oakes, tells ESPN. Magnay is currently 8 days into his 14-day mandatory hotel quarantine in Sydney.
Will Guillory: The Pelicans are waiving two-way center Will Magnay, per a source. @Shams Charania reported earlier that the team intends to fill that spot with James Nunnally.
Olgun Uluc: Will Magnay is finalizing a two-way deal with the New Orleans Pelicans, league sources told ESPN.
Olgun Uluc: Just filed a story to @ESPNAusNZ, ahead of tonight’s 36ers-Bullets preseason ‘test’ game. In the story: Will Magnay did not travel with the Bullets, sources told ESPN. Magnay has NBA interest; the team is proceeding with the expectation that he won’t be with them next season.
Olgun Uluc: The expectation is that Magnay will get on an NBA roster for the 2020-21 season, so the Bullets have begun planning for life without him. They've already fielded calls for replacement bigs, sources said.
Brisbane Bullets star Will Magnay has set the record straight on the Golden State Warriors rumours surrounding him earlier this year. It had been reported the Warriors had offered Magnay a 10-day contract and while a conversation took place and that deal was mentioned, the NBL20 Most Improved Player has revealed a contract was never officially offered.
“The Golden State Warriors had asked the Bullets if they had offered me a 10-day contract, would the Bullets release me,” Magnay said on the Gibbo Goes One-On-One podcast. “That was the conversation that went down and somehow that news got out. There was never anything on paper, there was interest and whatnot but never anything on paper. It got out and runs away like it does in the media.”
