On Thursday night, former Badgers forward Aleem Ford made his NBA summer league debut for the Orlando Magic against the Houston Rockets.
In 14 minutes of action, Ford totaled five points, two rebounds, and two assists on 2-of-7 shooting from the field.
Last season, the 6-foot-8 forward appeared in 33 games for the Lakeland Magic, averaging 12.5 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 1.6 assists on 38% shooting from beyond the arc.
In December of 2021, Ford signed a 10-day contract with the Orlando Magic and would appear in five games before returning to their G-League affiliate to finish the season.
The former Badger appeared in 126 career games (82 starts) in his four seasons with the UW program.
