With two point guards and a roster spot open following Elfrid Payton‘s departure, the Magic will wait until after the All-Star break to sign someone to a 10-day contract to back up D.J. Augustin and Shelvin Mack.
President of Basketball Operations Jeff Weltman said it would make sense to wait to sign someone because the Magic’s All-Star break, which will run from February 15-21, would take up a significant portion of a 10-day contract. No names have surfaced so far but Frank Vogel really likes the combination of Augustin and Mack playing together as it has lead to more ball movement. Both players will continue to have value for the rest of the season and deserve consideration but it will be hard to count on them on a consistent basis.
