The Orlando Magic open their training camp two weeks from Tuesday, with Media Day set for the day before that. We've yet to hear which non-roster players they'll invite to camp, but we'll certainly here more stories on that front in the coming weeks.

It's possible that the Magic will look to draw from their Orlando Pro Summer League roster for some training-camp bodies, as they did in 2012 with DeQuan Jones. To assess potential training-camp invites, Orlando Pinstriped Post looks back at the July series of games to see where Orlando's Summer-Leaguers are now.

Jared Berggren

Where he came from: Berggren went undrafted out of Wisconsin in 2012, where he averaged 11 points, 6.9 rebounds, and 2.1 blocks per game as a senior.
How he did: He played a limited role for Orlando in July, averaging just 11.5 minutes.
Where he is now: After joining the Cleveland Cavaliers for their entry in the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas, Berggren remains unsigned.

Keith Clanton

Where he came from: Clanton starred for UCF, averaging 14.8 points, 8.5 rebounds, 2.1 assists, and 3.1 combined steals and blocks in his senior season.
How he did: In two appearances, Clanton averaged one point per game and went 1-for-1 from the floor.
Where he is now: Clanton signed with WTK Anwil Włocławek in the Polish Basketball League.

Glen Dandridge

Where he came from: Dandridge, a Missouri product, had most recently played in Belgium for Belgacom Charleroi Spirou.
How he did: Dandridge averaged 6.5 points per game on 33.3 percent shooting from the floor and 30 percent from three-point range.
Where he is now: The former Tiger has changed teams, but not countries. He now plays for Wolves-Verviers Pepinster.

Matt Gatens

Where he came from: Gatens was playing for UCAM Murcia in Spain before joining the Magic for Orlando Pro Summer League.
How he did: The former Iowa Hawkeye shot 36.4 percent from the floor for four points per game.
Where he is now: Gatens has re-signed with UCAM Murcia.

DeQuan Jones

Where he came from: Jones spent his rookie season with the Magic after going undrafted out of Miami in 2012.

Where he came from: Lawal plied his trade in Italy for Tezenis Verona.
How he did: The skinny big man from Oakland averaged 2.3 points and 2.7 boards for Orlando.

Where he is now: Slaughter is still in France, but with Élan Chalon.
