    G, Orlando Magic

    The Orlando Magic have signed Josh Magette to a two-way contract according to Chris Haynes of Yahoo.

    Magette was last seen in the NBA two seasons ago with the Atlanta Hawks. After a strong showing in Summer League, Magette will have an opportunity to compete for a roster spot as an additional PG. He doesn't figure to hold any fantasy value if he is to make the squad.

    G, International

    Josh Magette has signed a contract to play the next season overseas with Croatian team KK Cedevita.

    Magette appeared in 18 games for the Hawks last season and averaged 2.6 point, 3.2 assists and 1.1 rebounds, but has otherwise spent most his career thus far in the G-League.

  • Josh Magette
    G, Golden State Warriors

    Josh Magette, made an unrestricted free agent earlier in the day, will play with the Warriors in Summer League.

    The Hawks declined to offer Magette a qualifying offer but he landed on his feet. We've already heard of a good chunk of Golden State's Summer League squad from earlier reports and the big names include Jordan Bell, Damian Jones and Jacob Evans. Ex-NBA players with recognizable names include Magette, Omari Johnson, Gian Clavell and J.P. Tokoto while China's Abudurexiti Abudushalamu is the most intriguing prospect. The full roster can be viewed below.

    G, Atlanta Hawks

    Josh Magette will be an unrestricted free agent with the Hawks declining to extend a qualifying offer.

    Magette is a true point guard and provided owners in very deep leagues with some assists when he did suit up for the Hawks last season. His skillset should get him G-League consideration at the very least, though he's unlikely to be more than an emergency point guard at the NBA level next year.

  • Tyler Cavanaugh
    PF/C, Atlanta Hawks

    The Hawks recalled Tyler Cavanaugh and Jeremy Evans from the G-League on Wednesday.

    In a corresponding move the Hawks also called up Josh Magette and Andrew White III. Cavanaugh and Evans should get some run off the bench especially if Dewayne Dedmon (rib) doesn't play. It's hard to trust either one of them in DFS and there is no need to add them anywhere at this point other than deep dynasty leagues if you want to play the lottery. Evans has yet to play a NBA game for the Hawks this season so maybe they'll be intrigued enough to throw him out there for a bit.

  • Dennis Schroder
    PG, Atlanta Hawks

    Dennis Schroder (sprained left ankle) is being listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game.

    Schroder rolled his left ankle last night but wound up returning to the game. The Hawks have already been slipping him some rest days so it'd be a mild surprise if he were to suit up, but we'll have to wait for final word tomorrow. Isaiah Taylor would start if Schroder sat with Josh Magette stepping up as the new backup.

  • Dennis Schroder
    PG, Atlanta Hawks

    Dennis Schroder rolled his left ankle early in the fourth quarter of Friday’s game and went into the locker room.

    It’s possible that Schroder returns tonight but his outlook for future games is pretty cloudy considering he was already getting rest days. Isaiah Taylor and Josh Magette will handle the point guard duties as long as he’s out.

  • Dennis Schroder
    PG, Atlanta Hawks

    Dennis Schroder (left elbow sprain) is being listed as probable ahead of Tuesday’s game against the Thunder.

    Schroder played limited minutes against Indiana before sitting out against the Bulls. Perhaps the Hawks needed him out of the lineup in one of the finer tank battles you’ll see this season. He’s expected to return to the starting lineup but probably won’t play his usual allotment of minutes, making him a dicier play than he typically is. Isaiah Taylor (sprained ankle) is probable and will handle the backup duties with Malcolm Delaney (sprained ankle) out of commission. Josh Magette will slide back down to third on the point guard depth chart, though he did split minutes with Taylor against Chicago.

  • Jaylen Morris
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    Jaylen Morris will be out for two weeks after spraining his left ankle on Sunday.

    Morris was playing spot minutes as a reserve guard for the Hawks, and they’ll have a few young players to turn to to pick up the slack. Josh Magette and Andrew White III stand out immediately while Tyler Dorsey makes the most sense of all as the likely replacement starter for Kent Bazemore. Outside of Dorsey, you’d just be throwing darts in deep leagues.

  • Isaiah Taylor
    PG, Atlanta Hawks

    Isaiah Taylor wasn’t overly impressive in Sunday’s 129-122 loss to the Bulls, picking up seven points, one rebound, eight assists and five fouls in 27 minutes of action.

    Taylor started since Dennis Schroder is dealing with an elbow sprain and Malcolm Delaney an ankle injury. The dimes were nice but Taylor didn’t inspire a ton of confidence and looks more like a specialist in the category than a bonafide add. Josh Magette also had eight assists in 27 minutes but added seven points and a triple off the bench. It’s a situation to avoid if possible, but Taylor could be the Hawks starting point guard for a bit if Schroder’s absence continues — in fantasy playoff season you take what you can get.

    PG, Atlanta Hawks

    The Hawks have recalled Josh Magette and Andrew White III.

    It seems the move comes in the wake of Malcolm Delaney’s ankle injury pointing in the direction of him missing some time. The move is only likely to provide depth off of the bench and both Magette And White III could be left on waivers in all leagues.

  • Josh Magette
    PG/SG, Atlanta Hawks

    The Hawks have recalled Josh Magette and Andrew White III.

    Magette has appeared in nine games this season with the Hawks and is averaging 2.3 points, 0.7 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 7.7 minutes per game. White has only appeared in two games, but has managed to post 15 points, two rebounds and one assist in only 18 minutes of action. Neither holds much fantasy value as they will likely be back in the G-league shortly.

  • Josh Magette
    PG, Atlanta Hawks

    Josh Magette was transferred to the G-League by the Hawks on Saturday.

    Magette has only appeared in one game for the Hawks since November and has 2.3 points and 2.0 assists in 7.7 minutes across nine games overall. He is averaging 15.2 points, 10.0 assists, 1.8 steals and 1.7 triples in the G-League this year but the Hawks just have too much depth at point guard right now.
