The Orlando Magic signed second-round pick Devyn Marble today.
The contract will be for three seasons, according to an industry source familiar with the terms of the contract.
Marble’s rookie season will be fully guaranteed.
His second and third seasons are non-guaranteed but would become guaranteed if Marble remains on the roster after specified trigger dates on the calendar.
Marble, a 6-foot-6 swingman who spent four seasons at the University of Iowa, was the 56th pick in June’s draft. The Magic used a draft-day trade to acquire the draft pick — sending Arron Afflalo to the Denver Nuggets for shooting guard Evan Fournier and the pick.
Marble played in all five of Orlando’s games during the Orlando Pro Summer League. In almost 21 minutes per game, Marble averaged 9.4 points, 6.2 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game.
Marble, 21, played both guard positions at Iowa. The Magic moved him to small forward for summer-league play.
With the signing, Orlando now has 14 players under contract.
The team is expected to finalize its deal with free-agent point guard Luke Ridnour soon. Once Ridnour is added to the roster, the Magic will be done with their major signings this summer.
