Of the 19 players with the Orlando Magic in training camp, which got underway Tuesday with a morning practice session, 12 of them are new to the team. We thought it might be useful to post their media-day portraits in this space to help you get to know them better.
Kadeem Batts, Drew Crawford, Seth Curry, and Peyton Siva officially inked deals with the Magic on Monday. They're in Orlando for camp and could ultimately earn an assignment to the Erie BayHawks, the Magic's NBA D-League affiliate, once camp concludes.
Orlando added Aaron Gordon and Elfrid Payton via the 2014 NBA Draft. Gordon was the fourth overall selection. Orlando acquired Payton's rights from the Philadelphia 76ers in exchange for the rights to Dario Šarić and a future first-round Draft choice.
The Magic added Evan Fournier on Draft night, sending Arron Afflalo to the Denver Nuggets in a trade. Orlando also obtained the rights to Devyn Marble, the 56th pick in the Draft, in that transaction.
Channing Frye, Ben Gordon, and Luke Ridnour came to the City Beautiful as free agents. The Magic also added Willie Green by claiming him off waivers upon his release from the Los Angeles Clippers.
