Dedmon gives the Magic another big man — a spot on the roster that thinned out when the team waived
Dedmon's signing is expected to be made official today, and he will travel with the team for its four-game road trip to the West Coast. Dedmon's skills are raw — he didn't start playing organized basketball until his senior year of high school — but he runs the floor well and has shown the ability to improve.
The Magic have decided not to sign rookie swingman
Thomas' second 10-day contract also expired at 11:59 Sunday night.
The Magic will have 13 players on their roster once Dedmon's signing becomes official.
