Magic welcome back Devin Cannady, signing him to a two-way contract.
The Orlando Magic have signed guard Devin Cannady to a two-way contract, the team announced Friday.
The deal also includes a non-guaranteed two-way contract for next season, according to league sources.
Cannady previously signed a 10-day deal with Orlando on April 6 before being released earlier this week as the team signed forward/ center Donta Hall to add frontcourt depth. The Magic then created a two-way opening when they waived rookie guard Karim Mané on Tuesday.
The Magic signed forward Robert Franks to a 10-day contract on Monday and are now at their roster maximum with 17 players, including two-way players Cannady and Chasson Randle.
In three games this season with the Magic, Cannady shot 40.0% from the 3-point line and scored 14 points in 13 minutes.
Cannady is expected to be available for Friday’s game against the Raptors, according to a team official.
Cannady, 24, earned MVP honors in the NBA G League Finals after leading the Lakeland Magic to the title. Cannady knocked down four 3-pointers and scored 22 points in a 97-78 win over the Delaware Blue Coats in the championship game. In Lakeland’s three playoff wins, he averaged 16 points along with five rebounds and was 9-of-20 (45.0%) on 3-point attempts.
The 6-foot-2 Cannady played in 13 G League games for Lakeland this season, including nine starts. He averaged 11.7 points, 2.8 rebounds and 2.7 assists while shooting 40.0% (28-of-70) from 3-point range.
Cannady also was with Orlando during preseason training camp on an Exhibit 10 deal before being waived.
