Did AP survive the regime change in Orlando? He was a scout there the past few years.

Yes, he is still working for the Orlando Magic as a scout.
He is mentioned in this article from this afternoon. He was instrumental in putting together this summer's Orlando Magic NBA Summer League team, and is actively scouting the players-

Anthony is also mentioned in several other recent articles-
http://www.orlandosentinel.com/sport...512-story.html
http://www.orlandosentinel.com/sport...624-story.html

And Anthony has been closely involved in the Magic's draft combine evaluations the last couple years.
It seems the Magic's executives and coaches think highly of him.
He is mentioned in articles from each of the last couple years about their draft evaluation team-

Zach Andrews is announcing a new twist to his career.
he has done some acting in commercials and on one "reality" TV show.....and has frequently worked as LeBron James' "body double'

Now Zach Andrews signs with one of Hollywood's top talent agencies to get more jobs in the acting business...
He got his "SAG card" (Screen Actors Guild) which will get him a whole lot more opportunities. Zach was a Theater major at Bradley!!

Andrew Warren's new team in Japan, the Cyberdyne Robots...use Andrew off the bench but it is hard to see why given his stats...

Andrew only averages playing 13.9 minutes per game - way less than the starters..

and yet Andrew averages 14.0 points per game (only 0.1 ppg off the team lead in scoring) and he's hitting 53.3% from beyond the arc!!
Have to believe he's gonna get a starting spot soon...



Meanwhile ZACH ANDREWS gets traded!!
He was picked up & signed by the NBA G-League Iowa Wolves then his rights were traded to the Northern Arizona Suns of the NBA G-League
