ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) Marreese Speights is finally returning home - or close to it.
The Orlando Magic announced Thursday that the 6-foot-10 veteran center from St. Petersburg has signed a contract. Speights couldn't be more thrilled to between his hometown and Gainesville where he won a national title with Florida in 2007.
"It's an unreal feeling," he said. "If I try to explain it it would be an understatement. I just feel blessed to be here. I never thought I'd be playing for my home team."
