Summer League Roster Update

The Orlando Pro Summer League will get underway on July 9.

Orlando is starting to fill out their roster. Forward Justin Harper, a second round pick in the 2011 NBA draft, who was acquired by the Magic via trade on draft night, will play for the Magic. Harper averaged 1.4 points, 0.9 rebounds and 6.0 minutes per game in 14 appearances last season. The Magic also informed guard DeAndre Liggins, their second round pick in 2011, he’d be playing. Liggins went for 1.9 points and 0.9 rebounds per game in 6.8 minutes per game in 17 games last season. First round pick Andrew Nicholson and second round pick Kyle O’Quinn will also play.

Per Alex Kennedy of Hoops World, the Magic also added two undrafted rookies to their squad.

Wayns, a 6’2 point guard from Villanova, averaged 17.6 points, 4.6 assists and 3.8 rebounds per game last season while shooting 41.4% from the floor.

Westbrook’s place on the team should come as no surprise. The Magic showed interest in the guard during the predraft process, bringing him in for a workout.

The other seven teams participating in the league with Orlando are the Boston Celtics, Brooklyn Nets, Detroit Pistons, Indiana Pacers, Oklahoma City Thunder, Philadelphia 76ers and Utah Jazz.

Those teams have a few very well-known college players, including Ohio State forward Jared Sullinger and Syracuse center Fab Melo, who were drafted by the Celtics, Connecticut center Andre Drummond, who went ninth overall to Detroit, Duke big man Miles Plumlee, who was selected by the Pacers, Baylor forward Perry Jones III, who fell all the way to Oklahoma City and Philadelphia’s two first round picks, St. John’s forward Moe Harkless and Mississippi State big man Arnett Moultrie.
