Jameer Nelson Contract Update + Adonal Foyle Address GM Interview Rumor

There have been a couple of new updates to push out regarding rumors surrounding the Orlando Magic.

First off, Jameer Nelson actually has until June 15 to make a decision on his player option for next season. It was originally reported by multiple outlets, citing the Orlando Magic, that he had three days from the last playoff game to make a decision.

Via Joshua Robbins of The Orlando Sentinel:

The Magic have issued a correction to what their GM said Wednesday. Jameer actually has until June 15 to exercise his option.

The other update is regarding the Magic interviewing Adonal Foyle, current Director of Player Development. Foyle took to Twitter on Wednesday to set the record straight:

Let me be abundantly clear I have never been interviewed for a GM job with the Orlando Magic.

Further Otis is my friend and mentor and I would never disrespect him in this manner.As Dir. of Player Dev – I have lots of work to do yet.

It seems as though we’ve had yet another rumor shot down by the actual truth, shocker. Jarrod Rudolph, who first reported the story, said he stands by his word, and said he wrote in the piece that Foyle denied the interview.
