Orlando Magic select Roy Devyn Marble with 56th-overall pick
After taking former Arizona Wildcats’ power forward Aaron Gordon with the fourth-overall pick and moving up to acquire former Louisiana Lafayette Ragin Cajuns’ point guard Elfrid Payton with the 10th-overall selection, the Orlando Magic finished things up by selecting former Iowa Hawkeyes’ swingman Roy Devyn Marble with the 56th overall pick.
Magic have 14 guys on the roster right now, including 1st rounders & unguaranteed deals. Will be very difficult for Marble to make the team.
