Magic Gaming released its 2020 schedule Thursday, revealing that the league’s opening Tipoff tournament will be held March 24 to 28.
The Orlando squad will also host two events at Full Sail University: a round-robin tournament that will include the Hornets, Heat and Hawks teams and tips off May 23 and a rivalry matchup with New Jersey on June 27.
The Magic Gaming squad finished its 2020 look Saturday, drafting a two-year veteran who head coach Jonah Edwards said he had targeted in the league’s first year.
Alexander “Profusion” Snowden, an explosive shooting guard who last season averaged 16 points and shot more than 50 percent from 3, was the first player chosen by the Magic, who picked him in the second round.
Magic Gaming followed that up by selecting Daniel “djbama” Burge in Round 4.
The Orlando Magic’s esports outfit took home hardware in two of the league’s four categories of its end-of-season awards last month. The team received the Partnership of the Year award for its integration with Orlando Health and Local Activation of the Year for hosting one of the league’s major events at Full Sail University.
It was part of the league’s NBA 2K League Team Business Awards, handed out during the league’s NBA 2K League workshop in Indianapolis.
