The Orlando Magic have re-signed free agent center Adonal Foyle, General Manager Otis Smith announced today. Per team policy, terms of the deal are not disclosed.
Foyle played in five games this season with the Magic, averaging 1.2 ppg. and 2.2 rpg. in 5.8 minpg., before being traded to Memphis as part of the three-team deal that sent Rafer Alston to Orlando on Feb. 19. He also played in one game with the Grizzlies and did not score in three minutes. Foyle was waived by Memphis on Mar. 1.
Originally selected by Golden State in the first round (eighth overall) of the 1997 NBA Draft, Foyle (6’10”, 270, 3/9/75) has appeared in 729 regular season games during his 11-year NBA career with Golden State, Orlando and Memphis, averaging 4.1 ppg., 4.7 rpg. and 1.63 blkpg. in 17.9 minpg. Foyle is Golden State’s all-time franchise leader in blocked shots with 1,140.
InsideHoops.com editor says: Foyle is basically good for swinging his arms at the basketball while others attempt to shoot it, and swinging his arms at the basketball after someone misses a shot in the hope of grabbing it, and not a heck of a lot more than that.
