Jonathon Simmons, Magic agree to a 3-year deal, per report

Game Womens Bruce Ellington Jersey Jonathon Simmons and the Orlando Magic have agreed to a three-year deal, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. The deal is worth $18 million, with just $1 million guaranteed in the final year, per Wojnarowski.

The Jazz will likely sign Sefolosha with some of their remaining cap space that arrived once Hayward departed for Boston. He’ll provide insurance on the wing behind Rodney Hood and Joe Ingles, and could swing up to power forward in small lineups, especially if the Jazz elect to release Boris Diaw.

The 33-year-old Sefolosha averaged 7.2 points per game in just under 26 minutes for the Hawks last season. He is a shaky perimeter shooter, but makes up for it with terrific cutting and lockdown defense. However, he lost minutes late in the year as rookie Taurean Prince emerged, so he may already be on the decline.

Sefolosha and new Jazz coach Quin Snyder have a connection from their time when Snyder was an assistant in Atlanta.

Marquese Chriss is standing in the hallway between the floor and a makeshift Summer League locker room in the cozy Cox Pavilion, which seats just 2,500 people. This isn’t the same lanky rookie who entered the league a year ago.

The 20-year-old power forward, drafted No. 8 last season, has put on 15 to 20 pounds of muscle during the offseason. McDonough and Watson agree: Phoenix wants to define Chriss’s muscle. He’s still growing into his body, all while battling much more experienced NBA big men on a nightly basis as a rookie starter.

That trial by fire was fine with McDonough, who sees Chriss as one of the more unique players in the NBA. Chriss averaged just under a block and a steal in about 21 minutes a game last season, but he also shot 32 percent from three-point range. Throw in his alley-oop finishing ability, and the Suns hope they have a young guy who can play above the rim on both ends while simultaneously stretching the floor to three-point range.
