Magic's Ignas Brazdeikis: Efficient in depth role
Brazdeikis ended with eight points (3-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), one assist and one steal across 10 minutes during Friday's 116-105 loss to the Lakers.
Brazdeikis didn't see much playing time during Friday's loss, but he converted 75 percent of his field-goal attempts and nearly scored in double figures. The 23-year-old has appeared in just five games since the start of the calendar year, and he's averaged just 2.4 points in 6.0 minutes per contest during that time.... See More ... See Less
Magic's Ignas Brazdeikis: New season-high point total
Brazdeikis totaled nine points (4-6 FG, 1-3 3Pt), two assists and two rebounds in 21 minutes off the bench Thursday in the Magic's 136-118 loss to the Bucks.
In his second appearance since clearing the NBA's COVID-19 health and safety protocols earlier this week, Brazdeikis established new season highs in both scoring and minutes. He was thrust into the larger role out of necessity, as the Magic only had nine players available with seven out with injuries and another five either in the health and safety protocols or still working to regain conditioning. The Magic could get at least one or two more bodies back in the mix for Sunday's game in Boston, so there's a good chance Brazdeikis' playing time takes a hit.... See More ... See Less

Magic's Ignas Brazdeikis: Tabbed for two-way deal
The Magic plan to sign Brazdeikis to a two-way contract in the near future, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports.
After the 76ers granted him his release in April, Brazdeikis initially inked a 10-day deal with Orlando before signing a contract with the club that ran through the remainder of the 2020-21 season. He ended up taking on a key role down the stretch for an Orlando squad that was without several players due to injury, appearing in eight games in total while averaging 11.1 points, 5.1 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.4 three-pointers in 29.1 minutes per contest. Assuming the Magic's primary options on the wing stay relatively healthy in 2021-22, Brazdeikis should see the bulk of his playing time in the G League during the upcoming campaign.... See More ...

Ignas Brazdeikis: Cut loose by Philly
The 76ers waived Brazdeikis on Thursday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Brazdeikis made one eight-minute cameo for the 76ers after he was acquired March 25 as a secondary piece in the deal that sent George Hill (thumb) to Philadelphia. A 2019 second-round pick, Brazdeikis has appeared in just 14 games between the Knicks and the 76ers since entering the professional ranks. The 22-year-old from Lithuania could pursue a return to Europe if no other NBA organization is willing to bring him aboard as a developmental prospect.... See More ... See Less
