The Orlando Magic have announced their roster for the upcoming Orlando Pro Summer League.
As I reported in April, the roster will include six people who played for the Magic last regular season: Maurice Harkless, Tobias Harris, DeQuan Jones, Doron Lamb, Andrew Nicholson and Kyle O’Quinn.
First-round draft pick Victor Oladipo and second-round draft pick Romero Osby also will play for the Magic’s summer league team, of course.
The summer-league roster also includes a total of 10 undrafted free agents and free agents who played professionally last season. Those players will attempt to earn an invitation to an NBA training camp, which, in turn, could turn into a spot on a regular-season roster.
Jones traveled that path last year. He went undrafted out the University of Miami, accepted an invitation to play for the Magic summer league team and earned an invitation to the Magic’s training camp. The Magic wound up keeping Jones for the entire regular season.
The league begins Sunday, and all of the exhibition games are closed to the public.
