  • Speights will sit out Tuesday's preseason game against the Spurs for rest, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports. The Magic rested the majority of their regular contributors on Monday in the first game of the team's back-to-back set. However, Speights wasn't one of those players and will instead be rested Tuesday in order to keep him fresh for the start of the regular season. Speights should be back for Friday's preseason finale against the Cavaliers, but he'll be stuck as a fairly deep reserve at both power forward and center with the likes of Aaron Gordon, Jonathan Isaac, Nikola Vucevic and Bismack Biyombo all likely ahead of him on the depth chart.

  • Speights provided 15 points (5-10 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and one rebound in 18 minutes during Monday's 99-96 loss to the Mavericks. Speights matched his career high in threes made and attempted, and he didn't need many minutes to do so. On the other hand, he also managed to commit six turnovers and five fouls. Speights has averaged 15.3 minutes per game in his career, and that's unlikely to improve since he'll be fighting for time with Nikola Vucevic, Aaron Gordon, and Bismack Biyombo, among others.

  • Magic's Marreese Speights: Signing with Magic
    By RotoWire Staff

    Speights signed a one-year deal for the veteran's minimum Sunday with the Magic, Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today reports. After stints on the West Coast in both Golden State and Los Angeles, Speights has elected to return to his home state of Florida for the 2017-18 season. The 29-year-old, who managed to play in all 82 games last season for the first time in his NBA career, will be entering his 10th season as a veteran presence for an overwhelmingly young Magic team. With Orlando having a lot of money invested at center with Nikola Vucevic and Bismack Biyombo, Speights could return to seeing more minutes in his original role in the league as a stretch power forward off the bench.

  • Clippers' Marreese Speights: Opts out of contract
    By RotoWire Staff

    Speights opted out of his $2.1 million contract for next season Tuesday and will become an unrestricted free agent. Speights signed with the Clippers for the veteran minimum last offseason and ended up playing in all 82 regular season games for the first time in his now nine-year NBA career. He did, however, play just 15.7 minutes per game, as the former Florida standout has played in a fairly limited role for most of his career. Now, after opting out, Speights may be looking for a larger role and pay raise elsewhere in the NBA. The big man is coming off yet another solid season from behind the arc, as he hit 37.2 percent of his shots from long range while taking a career-high 3.4 threes per game.

  • Speights started at power forward and produced five points (2-8 FG, 1-5 3Pt), four rebounds and one assist across 20 minutes in Sunday's 105-98 loss to the Jazz in Game 4 of the series. Speights moved into a starting role due to the absence of Blake Griffin (toe), but he actually finished with his lowest scoring output of the series. He routinely settled for jumpers from long range and was unable to provide the Clippers with the supplementary scoring that they needed from him. Speights' lack of success Sunday could prompt coach Doc Rivers to lean on more small-ball lineups in Game 5 as the Clippers look to reclaim control of the series.
