With reserve point guard Isaiah Taylor back to full health following a retinal tear, Magette's role at the NBA level has diminished. As a result, the team will opt to send him back to Erie so he can get more in-game experience. In the G-League, Magette is seeing 35.9 minutes per game, posting 17.4 points and 11.1 assists.
Magette will be recalled from the G-League on Wednesday, Michael Cunningham of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Magette has already played in eight games with the Hawks' G-League affiliate, averaging 17.4 points, 4.4 rebounds, 11.4 assists and 1.5 steals across 35.9 minutes. With the big club dealing with some injuries, they'll have a roster spot open ahead of Wednesday's contest with the Clippers, so Magette will get the call-up. That said, he's not going to be in the regular rotation and will likely be kept on the sidelines in a competitive contest.
Magette's contract for the upcoming 2017-18 season is a two-way deal.
While Magette and the Hawks decided to pair up back in late June, word just broke Wednesday that the contract is two-way. That means Magette will spend the majority of the year in the G-League, but can spend up to 45 days at the NBA level.
Magette, an undrafted 6-foot-1 point guard, spent last season in the D-League playing for the Los Angeles D-Fenders. He averaged 15.8 points, 9.3 assists and 4.4 boards across 35.3 minutes per game. He likely won't be fantasy relevant for the Hawks next season considering he'll probably be stuck behind Dennis Schroder and Malcolm Delaney on the depth chart.
