NBA Rumors: Ish Smith to Join Orlando Magic for Training Camp, According to Report

Mandatory Credit: Douglas Jones-US PRESSWIRE

The Orlando Magic have invited point guard Ish Smith to training camp, reports Steve Kyler of HOOPSWORLD. Smith, 24, signed with the Magic in February as their third point guard after the veteran Larry Hughes disappointed in that role. In 20 appearances, the speedy Smith averaged 2.3 points and 1.6 assists in 8.6 minutes per game and offered a refreshing change of pace from the deliberate Chris Duhon, Orlando's second point guard.

Smith's contract is not guaranteed, Kyler says, so he will have to work to earn a roster spot. Further, the team is looking to invite another point guard to camp.

Training camp begins October 1st at Amway Center. At present, the Magic have 12 players with guaranteed contracts for the forthcoming season: Gustavo Ayón, Earl Clark, Glen Davis, Duhon, Justin Harper, Dwight Howard, Jameer Nelson, rookie Andrew Nicholson, J.J. Redick, Jason Richardson, Quentin Richardson, and Hedo Turkoglu. In addition to Smith, two other players--second-year swingman DeAndre Liggins and rookie center Kyle O'Quinn--will join the team on non-guaranteed contracts.
