Dewayne Dedmon and Seth Curry Make Summer League Debut
The Orlando Summer League kicked off Saturday with a slew of games on the docket including the Magic taking on Nerlens Noel and the Philadelphia 76ers. The Magic prevailed winning 83-77, but how did former Santa Cruz Warriors Seth Curry and Dewayne Dedmon do in their summer league debuts?
Dedmon, who played with both Philadelphia and Orlando last season finished with four points on 1-of-7 shooting in just under 23 minutes of play. The USC product also snagged five rebounds and two blocks but also recorded five fouls in the game.
Curry’s stat line is slightly better, finishing 3-of-9 from the field and scoring nine points. Curry was 2-of-6 from 3-point range, dished out two assists and grabbed two steals in just less than 24 minutes of play.
Cam Jones, also playing for the Magic, didn’t play along with nine other players as it appears the Magic have split the squad into two separate groups.
The Magic team is filled with a number of D-League players including Romero Osby (Maine Red Claws), Scott Suggs (Erie BayHawks), Josh Magette (Los Angeles D-Fenders), and Matt Bouldin (Fort Wayne Mad Ants).
Pierre Jackson, who played for the Idaho Stampede last season and led the D-League in scoring for a majority of the season, went down with what appeared to be a grueling injury. He needed to be lifted off the court by teammates as it has been reported he tore his right achilles and could miss significant time.
The Magic’s next scheduled game is Tuesday at 12:30 PST against the Memphis Grizzlies. The game can be seen live on NBA TV.
