The Orlando Magic have re-signed center Adonal Foyle after trading him to the Memphis Grizzlies last month.
The team announced the signing Monday. Foyle was dealt to Memphis in a three-team deal just before the Feb. 19 trade deadline that brought point guard Rafer Alston to Orlando from Houston. The Magic needed an upgrade at point guard after All-Star Jameer Nelson's season-ending shoulder injury. Memphis waived Foyle on March 1.
Magic coaches have touted the 34-year-old Foyle as a strong practice partner for center Dwight Howard. His re-signing is likely for those purposes.
Foyle played in five games this season with the Magic, averaging 1.2 points and 2.2 rebounds.
