Good news for one of our favorites: Alex Poythress will play for the Orlando Magic Blue squad in the NBA Summer League in Orlando. Poythress, who went undrafted last week, is one of six college players invited to join the squad for the one-week, 25-game event, which begins on Sunday. If he performs well, Poythress could land a free agent contract with the Magic or another team.
Also of note on the Orlando Magic Blue roster: UNLV’s Stephen Zimmerman, once a UK target; and Mississippi State’s Gavin Ware. Here’s their schedule, with 24 of the 25 games airing live on NBATV:
Saturday, July 2, 1:00 p.m.: Orlando Blue @ Indiana
Monday, July 4, 3:00 p.m.: Orlando Blue @ Detroit
Tuesday, July 5, 1:00 p.m.: Orlando Blue @ Miami
Thursday, July 7, 1:00 p.m.: Dallas @ Orlando Blue
Friday, July 8: Championship rounds
Best of luck, Alex. You got this.
