Orlando Magic Re-Sign Ish Smith

Douglas Jones-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Wake Forest product will join the Magic for training camp.

The Orlando Magic re-signed Ish Smith on Wednesday afternoon, the team announced. The free-agent point guard appeared in 20 games for the Magic in the 2011/12 season after the team signed him on February 2nd. The decision to bring Smith to training camp ought not to come as a surprise: HOOPSWORLD reported in early August that Orlando wanted Smith to return, and the inclusion of Chris Duhon in the blockbuster Dwight Howard trade left Orlando with only Jameer Nelson at point guard.

Smith averaged 2.3 points, 1.3 rebounds, and 1.6 assists per game in Magic pinstripes in just 8.6 minutes per game. He tied a career-best with seven assists and set a new career-high with three steals with Orlando, reaching both milestones in an April 9th victory against the Detroit Pistons.

Smith's signing brings Orlando's roster to 16 players, one more than the league maximum of 15. The Magic will need to cut a player if they intend to keep Smith for the regular season.
