The Orlando Magic announced their Summer League roster featuring the Magic’s two rookies and several familiar faces to the team.
The Magic’s two picks from the 2017 NBA Draft will undoubtedly be the headliners for the Magic as they begin a five-game schedule in the first six days of July.
Magic fans and staff will certainly be keeping a close eye on Jonathan Isaac throughout the week to see just how far along he is developed. Isaac said after he was drafted he felt he did not get the chance to show his ability to play on the ball as part of the Florida State Seminoles’ veteran squad.
Isaac averaged only 12.0 points and 7.8 rebounds per game last year for the Seminoles. The Magic drafted him largely for his versatile skills and ability at 6-foot-10. He shows tons of athleticism and defensive ability. But this week should be a chance to show off his offensive game.
Wesley Iwundu is a little bit more developed. He played four years with the Kansas State Wildcats finishing off by averaging 13.0 points and 6.3 rebounds per game. He was known there for his defense and all-around solid play.

Stephen Zimmerman played sparingly for the Magic last year as the team hoped to develop him behind the scenes and in the D-League with the Erie BayHawks. Zimmerman averaged 13.4 points and 8.9 rebounds per game in 21 games for Erie.
Marcus Georges-Hunt and Patricio Garino were also successful in the D-League before the Magic signed them shortly before the end of the season. Garino was a standout for the Magic’s Summer League team last year. He averaged 11.2 points per game and shot 43.0 percent from beyond the arc for the Austin Spurs. Georges-Hunt averaged 15.8 points, 6.2 rebounds and 4.5 assists per game for the Maine Red Claws.
The Magic signed both toward the end of last season with the idea of bringing them in for Summer League and training camp beyond that.
The most interesting name returning to Summer League though is former second-round pick Tyler Harvey.
Harvey was the Magic’s second-round selection in 2015. He played for the Erie BayHawks in the 2016 season. After struggling in Summer League last year, the Magic opted not to sign Harvey to their training camp roster, retaining his rights. He played for FIAT Torino in Italy last year. Harvey averaged 10.7 points per game for them last season.
