Magic re-sign Admiral Schofield to 2-way contract – The Denver Post


Admiral Schofield re-signed with the Orlando Magic on a two-way contract Friday evening, the team announced.

A league source told the Orlando Sentinel before the team’s announcement that Schofield signed the two-way qualifying offer the Orlando Magic extended to him before free agency started, making way for his return.

Schofield, a 25-year-old forward who was the 2019 draft’s 42nd pick, was among a quartet of players whom the Magic signed to 10-day contracts via hardship exceptions in mid-December from the organization’s G League affiliate, the Lakeland Magic, because multiple players were put in the league’s COVID-19 health and safety protocols.

He signed multiple 10-day deals before signing a two-way contract in early January, averaging 3.8 points in 12.3 minutes (38 games).

Two-way players will once again have a 50-game limit in the regular season to be on their NBA team’s active roster in 2022-23. The NBA and the National Basketball Players Association agreed to scrap that limit in 2021-22 because of teams’ COVID-19 outbreaks.

This story will be updated.
