The Orlando Magic and second-round draft pick Wesley Iwundu have agreed to a three-year, $4.1 million deal, agent Austin Walton of NEXT Sports told Basketball Insiders.

The first two years of the contract are fully guaranteed and the third year of the deal has a trigger date.

The deal includes more guaranteed money than Davon Reed, the No. 32 overall pick in the draft, according to colleague Eric Pincus’ Phoenix Suns salary sheet.

Orlando selected Iwundu No. 33 overall out of Kansas State University. He’s the first Kansas State player to be drafted since Michael Beasley and Henry “Bill” Walker in 2008. Iwundu averaged 13.0 points, 6.3 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.0 steals per game as a senior at Kansas State. Iwundu also shot 48 percent from the field overall and 38 percent from beyond the arc.

Iwundu scored 24 points, dished out seven assists and grabbed six rebounds in Kansas State’s victory over Wake Forest in the South Region’s First Four portion of the NCAA Tournament.

The 22-year-old is considered a versatile swingman defender.
