After winning their final preseason game on Thursday night against the New Orleans Pelicans, the Orlando Magic made another roster move. signing free agent guard Ramon Galloway.

Galloway, 25, played four successful college years at South Carolina and La Salle before bouncing around overseas for the past three seasons. The 6-foot-3 guard has played in Bosnia, Germany and most recently Italy, as well as with the Charlotte Hornets during the Orlando Pro Summer League this summer. In 26 games for OpenJobMetis Varese in SerieA and Fulgor Omegna in SerieB Galloway averaged 11.7 points, 4.2 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game.

With roster cuts looming for all NBA teams, Galloway likely won't be around very long for the Magic. The team will need to cut a minimum of two players to get down to the league maximum of 15, meaning the likes of Galloway, Arinze Onuwaku and Nick Johnson will be holding their breath over the coming days. Should all three be cut, they'll likely end up in Erie with the Magic's D-League affiliate the BayHawks.
