For the third time this season, the NBA Development League’s Santa Cruz Warriors have had center Dewayne Dedmon called up to the big leagues.
Dedmon was signed Tuesday by the Orlando Magic to fill the roster spot vacated when the club bought out the contract of Glen Davis.
This is Dedmon’s third NBA stint this season. He was with the Golden State Warriors and Philadelphia 76ers earlier this year.
Dedmon played four games for Golden State, logging six minutes and scoring one point. With the 76ers, he appeared in 11 games and averaged 3.4 points and 4.5 rebounds in 13.6 minutes per game. The 76ers signed him to a 10-day contract on Jan. 14, but did not sign him for the remainder of the season when a second 10-day deal expired in early February.
Dedmon was in training camp with the Golden State Warriors, but did not make the final 15-man roster coming out of the preseason. He went undrafted out of USC last June.
He played 15 games in the D-League for Santa Cruz, averaging 15.2 points, 13.5 rebounds, 2.3 blocks and 1.5 steal in 33.7 minutes a game. He shot 54 percent from the floor.
