In addition to big names Shabazz Napier and Elfrid Payton, Villanova guard James Bell also was in Orlando on Wednesday according to Bell’s Instagram page (h/t Mike J. of VUHoops).
Bell averaged 14.5 points per game and 6.1 rebounds per game last year. The 6-foot-5 guard improved his field goal shooting in each of his four years, finishing at 42.6 percent his senior year. That kind of improvement is something teams like to see. Is it enough to get him in the NBA?
Bell is a local product having attended Montverde Academy and is ranked 54th among seniors. He is not someone that would likely get drafted and is a good player to have for drills with some of the other players the Magic probably want to look at. Bell could very well be a player the team invites to its Summer League team.
