Dewayne Dedmon, the former USC center who entered the NBA Draft early last season only to go undrafted, was signed for the remainder of the season by the Orlando Magic after his second 10-day contract expired at 11:59 Sunday night.
After playing big bench minutes with the 76ers, as many as 19 minutes in his final game, Dedmon has played only six minutes in three games since joining the Magic.
He is 3-for-4 from the floor with three rebounds in his six minutes.
The most interesting detail comes from Yahoo! Sports' Marc Spears:

Dedmon provides the Magic frontcourt depth after they recently waived Solomon Jones and bought out the contract of Glen Davis.
