After a successful season overseas, Isaiah Briscoe has returned to the States to pursue his dream of playing in the NBA. According to John Calipari, Briscoe is working on an opportunity with the Orlando Magic:
Just talked to one of the toughest and most competitive players I’ve ever coached, @ZayBriscoe! He is with the Orlando Magic working to make their club. I’m getting great reports!

Briscoe hasn’t been mentioned in any of the stories about the Magic’s summer league roster, but knowing Cal, he’s doing everything he can to help his former player out. Last summer, Briscoe played for the Philadelphia 76ers’ summer team, averaging 5.5 points and 2.17 assists per game.
If you missed it earlier this month, Briscoe won Russian Young Player of the Year for his performance with BC Kalev. He averaged 22 points, 4 assists and 1.3 steals per game in his first year with the squad, helping lead them to the Estonian Championship. Here are his highlights:
Good luck, Isaiah.
