Siva signed a contract with ALBA Berlin of Germany last week, international basketball writer David Pick reports. Siva, a second-round pick by the Pistons in 2013, lasted just one season in the league and has spent the past two campaigns overseas. At 25 years old, there's still a chance Siva could return to North America down the road, but it doesn't seem like there's much interest from NBA teams in bringing him over at this time.
The Magic waived power forward Kadeem Batts and guards Drew Crawford, Seth Curry and Peyton Siva Saturday, bringing the team's roster down to 15 players. None of the four players saw any preseason action with the team.
Peyton Siva signed a contract with the Magic on Monday, according to the Orlando Sentinel. Siva will be with the team for training camp, but will not travel with the team for road preseason games. He is expected to be shipped away to the D-League at the start of the regular season, per the paper.
A number of injuries in the backcourt could open up a spot on the opening night roster for Pistons guard Peyton Siva, the No. 56 pick in this year's draft. Siva played 26 minutes Wednesday against the Bulls, in his second preseason game. Though he struggled shooting the ball, finishing with four points on 1 of 7 shooting, however he directed the offense well. Siva dished out nine assists and had just one turnover in the game.
Pistons rookie guard Peyton Siva, who had been dealing with a strained right calf, returned to action in Saturday's preseason game against the Nets. Siva came off the bench and logged 15 minutes of game action. He shot 2 of 3 from the field and finished with eight points, two assists, one rebound and one steal in a 99-88 win.
