Magic re-sign Adonal Foyle

From today's edition of the Online Florida Today from John Denton:

The Orlando Magic and veteran center Adonal Foyle have reached an agreement on a one-year contract worth $1.3 million, according to a NBA source familiar with the contract negotiations.

Foyle, 33, played in all 82 games with the Magic last season, backing up starting center Dwight Howard. Foyle exercised an opt-out clause in his contract back in June, looking for a situation where he could get more playing time and money. But instead he decided to re-sign with the Magic.

Because Foyle received the veteran's minimum for a player with 10 years or more of experience, the Magic will be responsible for just $757,581 of his contract. The NBA will subsidize the rest of his contract.

The Magic now have 13 players on the roster. Carlos Arroyo and Pat Garrity remain unsigned from last season's roster and neither is expected to return. Orlando would still like to add a third point guard behind starter Jameer Nelson and reserve Anthony Johnson.

    Last year Mr. Foyle played in 82 regular season games for 775 minutes, which was 9th on the team. Gortat played in 6 for 40 minutes.

    Then in the playoffs he only played in 3 of ten games, for 10 total minutes tying him for 10th with Redick. Gortat played in 8 games for 48 minutes.

    I think Foyle gets the Bo Outlaw Memorial Chair this year, with the glass cover that says "break in case of emergency." I doubt he will see many minutes and expect Battie and Gortat to be in front of him.

    That's a good way of putting it, WeRDevos.

    That just shores us up even more at the center position. With dwight,marcin and adonyl we should have a nice three man rotation at the C spot.
