Beverley was in his first season with the Lakers following a summer trade with the Jazz. Now, both Beverley and Russell Westbrook (traded to Jazz) are gone.
So is center Thomas Bryant, who was traded to the Nuggets for shooting guard Davon Reed. So Bamba will presumably serve as frontcourt depth behind the likes of big men Anthony Davis and newcomer Jarred Vanderbilt, acquired in the Westbrook trade with the Jazz.
It is not known if the Magic will keep Beverley or waive him, though the latter is safe bet.
