Former Arizona Wildcats guard Gabe York has signed with the Orlando Magic, the team announced Wednesday.
York inked an Exhibit 10 deal and is expected to play for the Lakeland Magic — Orlando’s G League affiliate — this season, per Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel.

An Exhibit 10 contract is a one-year non-guaranteed minimum contract with a bonus that “can pay the player from $5,000 to $50,000 if the player is waived by his NBA team, signs with the D-League, is assigned to the NBA team’s G League affiliate, and stays there at least 60 days,” according to CBAFAQ.com.
In other words, York is part of Orlando’s 20-man offseason roster and will likely be waived when training camp ends, before heading to the Lakeland Magic with a sizable bonus in his pocket.
York spent the 2017-18 season overseas with Medi Bayreuth, a German team. He started in all 58 games he appeared in, averaging 15 points per game, while shooting 42% from the field and 39% from 3.
