Gavin Ware didn't hear his name called in the draft. Despite his playing level rising and him excelling on the court, his senior season didn't go the way anyone wanted it to. But that's not going to stop him from trying to continue to play at the next level. Ware was apparently picked up by the Orlando Magic to play on their "Blue" team for this summer.

Ware will sport the number 41 in the summer for the Magic. Though this isn't a guarantee at all for his future with the team, it is an opportunity for him to show his potential and attempt to earn a spot with a team somewhere, even if it is a spot on an NBA D-League roster.
Good luck with this opportunity, Gavin!
