The Orlando Magic will bring four non-roster players to training camp, reports Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel. The players are swingmen Kris Joseph and Manny Harris and big men Micheal Eric and Solomon Jones.

Joseph, 24, split his rookie season with the Boston Celtics and the Brooklyn Nets, scoring nine points across 10 appearances. In his four-year career at Syracuse, the Montreal native averaged 10.5 points and 4.5 rebounds.

Harris, 23, has 80 games of NBA experience with the Cleveland Cavaliers. He owns NBA averages of 6.2 points and 2.6 rebounds. In the 2012/13 season, Harris played with the Ukranian team Azovmash, for which he averaged 15.6 points and a team-best 6.8 rebounds per game.

Jones, 29, has seven years of NBA experience, most recently with the New York Knicks, for which he played 26 minutes across two appearances in 2012/13. The Mount Dora High graduate and former South Florida star has NBA averages of 3.1 points and 2.4 boards.

Eric, 25, went undrafted in 2012 out of Temple, for which he averaged six points and 4.6 rebounds per game in his four-year career. In 50 games for the Canton Charge of the NBA D-League in the 2012/13 season, Eric averaged 8.1 points and 7.6 rebounds.

The Magic have 13 players with guaranteed contracts, not counting Kyle O`Quinn, whose contract becomes fully guaranteed if not waived before opening night; he is likely to make the team. Orlando owns the NBA rights to 2013 second-round Draft choice Romero Osby, who will join the team for training camp, Schmitz says. Joseph, Harris, Jones, and Eric will battle Osby for Orlando's 15th roster spot.
