Training camp begins in a week

Just a few minor notes regarding the Magic as we near training camp next week, courtesy of the Magic BasketBlog:

The Magic have added two free agents --- guard Morris Almond and forward Linton Johnson III --- to their training-camp roster, said General Manager Otis Smith.

Almond, 6-feet-6, was a former first-round pick in 2007 by Utah and played 25 games with the Jazz last season. He averaged 3.7 points and 1.4 rebounds.

Johnson, 6-8, is a six-year pro out of Tulane. He has averaged 3.9 points and 3.3 rebounds over his career, and played briefly with the Charlotte Bobcats and Chicago Bulls last season.

Also, Magic backup center Marcin Gortat averaged 14.3 points and 10.8 rebounds per game for Poland over his six tournament games at the European basketball championships, which Spain won.
