The Orlando Magic announced Thursday that it has signed rookie Devyn Marble. Though the terms of the deal were not disclosed, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports that the deal will be for three seasons with the first year being fully guaranteed.

Marble shifted between guard positions at Iowa, but played mostly as a small forward for Orlando during Summer League. His ability to play multiple positions is surely something the Magic covets; the team, of course, appreciates roster fluidity and lineup flexibility.

Marble averaged 9.4 points, 6.2 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 21 minutes per game during Orlando Pro Summer League. He averaged 17 points, 3.6 rebounds and 3.2 assists in his senior season at Iowa.

Orlando traded veteran Arron Afflalo on Draft day to the Denver Nuggets for Evan Fournier and the No. 56 pick, the selection ultimately used to pick up Marble. The wing can play in Orlando or swing to the Erie BayHawks, the Magic's new D-League affiliate. Either way, he's under contract with the Magic.
