Found July 12, 2013 on Orlando Magic Daily:
The Magic will not re-sign DeQuan Jones, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports. Jones received his most extensive playing time in the Magic's Summer League finale, scoring 15 points in about 18 minutes.

Jones and the Magic parted amicably as Jones took to Twitter to thank the fans and the organization: Thanks Mr. Hennigan, Coach Vaughn & the entire coaching staff for bringing me to ORL. It has been a great experience with the organization. — Dequan Jones (@Dequan20Jones) July 12, 2013 Wishing all of my teammates and coaches the best of luck and thank them for an incredible season. — Dequan Jones (@Dequan20Jones) July 12, 2013 Again, thank you to all my fans for embracing me.

Magic see full range of Victor Oladipo during summer play

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Not until the beginning of the second quarter of their final game in the Orlando Pro Summer League did the Orlando Magic put a lineup on the floor that NBA followers might call a typically nondescript group in a setting such as this. After getting a long look at what No. 2 overall pick Victor Oladipo and such prominent players from a year ago as Maurice Harkless...

Magic's Maurice Harkless benefits from summer league

ORLANDO Jerseys with short sleeves. Jason Kidd as a coach. Joe Crawford relaxed and smiling. All qualify as unusual sights this week at the Orlando Pro Summer League. Only slightly less odd than those is that the player with the most regular-season experience as a starter on the roster of the Orlando Magic is also their youngest participant. After making 59 starts last season, it...

Magic won't re-sign Beno Udrih

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports the Magic will not re-sign backup point guard Beno Udrih. Udrih averaged 10.2 points and 6.2 assists per game in 27.3 minutes per game and 27 games after the Magic acquired him in the Tobias Harris-J.J. Redick trade. Udrih had been upset in Milwaukee that his playing time had decreased and that the team had moved him off the ball in...

In crunch time, Oladipo and Harkless shine

All eyes were on Victor Oladipo at the end of the game. Maybe that is unfair for a rookie -- even the second overall pick -- in a Summer League game. After his teammates -- particularly Maurice Harkless -- helped bring the Magic back into position to win after defensive lapses and fouls derailed the Magic. It was Oladipo who brought the house down. It was Oladipo whom fans will...

Victor Oladipo Sinks Game-Winner During Summer League Game

Victor Oladipo is already proving he can be a clutch offensive player for the Orlando Magic, who drafted the former Indiana standout with the #2 overall pick in last month’s NBA Draft. Oladipo drained a game-winning jumper in the face of Michael Carter-Williams, another lottery pick from this year’s draft class, in a Summer League game against the Sixers yesterday. [The NBA Passionista...

CC video of the day: Oladipo with the game winner at Summer League

The Orlando Summer League is winding down and it has given fans and NBA scouts and coaching staffs insight into the future of the league and their own team. For the Orlando Magic, it means a close-up look at 2013 Draft pick Victor Oladipo and in a recent game versus 76ers she showed poise, confidence and willingness to take and make the clutch shot when the game is on the line...

Oladipo hits game winning shot

Victor Oladipo was the second overall pick in this year’s NBA draft to the Orlando Magic. It is no secret that Oladipo is an excellent defender and athletic, but some question the pick because of his lack of offensive skills. Well Oladipo showed off the skills as he hit a step back jumper to give the Magic the win over the 76ers in a NBA Summer league game. Here is what Oladipo...

Magic Looking To Add Depth At Point Guard, Center

The Orlando Magic are looking to add point guard and center depth before the start of training camp. Orlando will not re-sign Beno Udrih, who was acquired last season in a trade deadline deal with the Milwaukee Bucks. One free-agent possibility is A.J. Slaughter, a 6-foot-3 guard who has played well for the Magic in summer-league practices.

Magic Summer League Player Grades

The Orlando Magic finished up their Summer League at the Amway Center on Friday with a 102-83 loss to the Boston Celtics. Overall, the Magic went just 2-3 in five games. The Magic have a number of guys looking to make the team while others are looking to turn heads. In addition to falling to [...]

A week of learning

The final score of the Magic's Summer League finale against the Celtics is ultimately irrelevant -- the Celtics won 102-83 dominating the first quarter and never looking back, building as much as a 29-point lead. Victor Oladipo, Kyle O'Quinn and Maurice Harkless sat out the game after all. Orlando, having relied heavily on those players throughout the first four games...

Notebook: Sedrick Barefield shines at Adidas Invitational

INDIANAPOLIS — During the first 10 minutes of the Compton Magic’s only game of the day on Friday, nothing went right for Sedrick Barefield. He turned the ball over, played tentatively and his shot wasn’t falling. His coach, AJ Diggs, took him and some of his teammates out of the game and urged them, somewhat colorfully, to pick up their play. Barefield took his advice to heart...
