Almost a month after being draft, Devyn Marble has found his way onto an NBA roster. On Thursday, the Orlando Magic officially announced the signing of Marble, the 56th pick in June’s NBA Draft. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not released. 

Marble, who spent four years at Iowa before entering the draft, averaged 12.5 points, 3.4 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.29 steals per game in 136 games as a member of the Hawkeyes. During his senior season, Marble started all 33 games and led the team in scoring, averaging 17.0 points per game. 

During Orlando’s five game’s during the Orlando Summer League, Marble was impressive. He showed off a great rebounding ability — he averaged 6.2 for the week — while also showing off a silky smooth jump shot. 

While terms of the deal were not released, Orlando Sentinel scribe Josh Robbins, citing industry sources, said Marble’s deal will be three years with only the first one being fully-guaranteed. The final two seasons will be unguaranteed, but would become guaranteed if Marble is still on the roster past a certain date. 

The Magic’s roster now officially sits at 14, with the 15th spot most likely going to Luke Ridnour, who the team has reportedly agreed to terms with. The signing of Marble also most likely puts an end to any more moves the team will make this offseason.
