The 25-year-old spent the 2017-18 season as a two-way player for the Minnesota Timberwolves, playing 47 games (46 starts) for the G League Iowa Wolves.
The 6-foot-9, 224-pound Duke product averaged 17.8 minutes, led the G League in rebounding at 12.9, and added 2.6 assists per game. He shot 62.5 percent from the floor and 72.9 percent from the free-throw line.
Amile Jefferson will become the Magic's second two-way player for the upcoming season, joining Troy Caupain. An NBA team may sign up to two players on tow-way deals. So Jefferson's impending signing on a two-way will complete Orlando's two-way allotment for the season. https://t.co/4YLufQrSGL
