Magic Officially Announce Signing of Devyn Marble
As initially reported by MBO, the Orlando Magic have officially announced the signing of 56th overall Draft pick Devyn Marble. The Orlando Sentinel’s Josh Robbins was the first to reveal some of the terms of the contract. It’ll be a 3-year deal, but only the ’14-’15 season will be guaranteed. Exact monetary figures are unknown at this time.
As a senior at Iowa, Marble played mostly point guard and shooting guard and started in 33 games, averaging 17.0 ppg., 3.6 apg., 3.2 rpg. and 1.8 spg. in 30.2 minutes per contests. He was named First Team All-Big Ten after leading the team in scoring and ranked second in assists. Marble scored in double figures 27 times.
The #56 pick was acquired as part of the Evan Fournier–Arron Afflalo deal with the Denver Nuggets. The Hawkeyes wing player proved to be quite versatile during the Orlando Summer League. Devyn averaged 9.4 ppg, 6.2 rpg, 1.2 apg, and 1.2 spg on 37.2 FG% (16-of-43) and 31.3 3PT% (5-of-16) in the five games he played earlier this month. The 21-year-old born and raised in Southfield, Michigan adjusted himself well as Devyn saw time at PG, SG, SF, and even PF. His solid defense, outstanding hustle, praised character, great off-ball motion, efficient transition play, and shooting potential has certainly caught the attention of Orlando’s coaching and front office staff. Expect Marble to play more of the small forward position as we head into training camp in October.
