Devin Cannady is sticking around the NBA for a while.
Having signed a 10-day contract with the Orlando Magic on March 31, the former Princeton standout signed off on a deal to stay on with the team, the Magic announced Sunday ahead of the season finale Sunday night.
The team didn’t disclose terms of the deal.
Cannady had made the jump from the Lakeland Magic of the NBA G League, where he had averaged 15.8 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 16 games and 11 starts.
In four games for Orlando at the NBA level, Cannady has shown off the sharpshooting skills that Ivy hoops fans know well, going 11-for-28 (39.3%) from three-point range and averaging 8.8 points, two assists, 1.5 rebounds, 1.3 steals and 27.8 minutes in four games. Cannady’s production has increased over the four-game span, including 12 points in 28 minutes in a loss at Charlotte against the Hornets Thursday.
Cannady averaged 14.6 points, 4.1 rebounds, 1.6 assists. and 1.1 steals in 31.1 minutes per game during 104 career games at Princeton from 2015 to 2019.
Cannady’s return to the NBA came nearly a year after he sustained an open right ankle dislocation with a severe lateral ankle sprain after landing awkwardly eight games into his previous NBA stint, which had come on a two-way contract after two years in the G League.
Cannady was named G League Final MVP after helping Lakeland win the 2020-21 NBA G League championship.
