Report: Magic sign Devyn Marble

Official announcement expected Friday or Saturday

Yesterday, the Orlando Magic's team website called Devyn Marble their most likely summer league player to make the final NBA roster. 

Today, they have reportedly made it official. 

Players selected as late in the draft as Marble was (56th overall) are often long-shots to receive an NBA contract right away. Former Purdue Boilermaker Robbie Hummel was picked 58th in 2012 by the Minnesota Timberwolves, and then played in Spain for a year before signing with Minnesota last season. 

Marble played in five summer league games with the Magic this week, and averaged 9.4 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 1.2 assists. Magicbasketballonline.com wrote that he "proved capable of contributing with defense and rebounding even if his jumpshot was not falling."
