Los Angeles D-Fenders point guard Josh Magette will play for the Indiana Pacers in Orlando Summer League before suiting up for the Atlanta Hawks in Las Vegas Summer League, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

Magette averaged 15.8 points and 9.3 assists per game to help the D-Fenders run out to the best record in the Western Conference (34-16) before they fell in the first round of the D-League playoffs to the Rio Grande Valley Vipers.

Following his departure from the Hawks, Magette then returned to the D-Fenders — who will be rebranded as the South Bay Lakers next season — where he has spent the last two seasons and three of the last four.

The NBA D-League leader in assists the past two seasons, Magette played for the Brooklyn Nets in Las Vegas last summer before going to training camp with the Hawks, where he was the team’s last cut during preseason.
