Barring any unforeseen negotiation issues, Romero Osby will be in Magic training camp and likely an official member of the Orlando Magic very soon.
Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel reports the Magic intend to invite their second round pick to training camp, thus using his draft rights. While the final terms of a contract are still being negotiated, Schmitz reports, it likely means Romero Osby will be making the Magic's final roster barring any unforeseen circumstances.

Many believed the Magic would not bring Osby into camp unless they were sure he would make the team and gain development. Otherwise, they would encourage him to play overseas. Remember, though, the contract is not finalized.
In addition, Schmitz reports four others will get training camp invites: centers Michael Eric and Solomon Jones and guards Kris Joseph and Manny Harris.

The last bit of news from Schmitz, the Magic and Hedo Turkoglu are still working on a buyout. Not much progress to report though other than that.
But let's focus now on who is coming to camp.no comments
