=== Magic re-sign Stevenson ===

Orlando, FL (Sports Network) – The Orlando Magic re-signed guard DeShawn
Stevenson on Thursday. Terms of the deal for the restricted free agent were
not disclosed.

Stevenson was acquired by the Magic last February 19 in a deal with Utah that
sent Gordan Giricek to the Jazz.

“The re-signing of DeShawn continues in addressing our objective of bringing
depth, athleticism and versatility to our roster,” said Magic general manager
John Weisbrod. “We certainly look forward to his contributions to our team.”

Stevenson averaged a career-best 11.4 points in 80 games, including 78 starts,
last season. In 26 games with the Magic, he averaged 11.2 points and 4.6
rebounds.

The Jazz originally selected Stevenson out of high school with the 23rd
overall pick of the 2000 draft. He has averaged 6.5 points in 248 regular-
season NBA games with Utah and Orlando.
