|Orlando Will Sign Former Celtic, E'Twaun Moore|
Orlando Magic have shored up their backcourt by agreeing to contract terms with second-year player E'Twaun Moore - a former Celtic. Moore, who appeared in 38-games for the C's last season, was traded to Houston in July, but became a free agent after the Rockets waived him almost immediately.
The Orlando Magic have agreed to contract terms with free-agent combo guard E’Twaun Moore and will announce his signing in the near future, two league sources told the Orlando Sentinel. Moore could compete with Ish Smith for the Magic’s backup point-guard job and provide depth at shooting guard behind Aaron Afflalo and J.J. Redick.
“There’s an opportunity there in Orlando, and I think he wanted to seize the opportunity,” said Mark Bartelstein, who is Moore's agent. “Both [Magic GM] Rob Hennigan and [Magic assistant GM] Matt Lloyd did a great job of recruiting him, making their pitch and explaining why it’ll be a great fit.”
Moore’s deal is expected to be for two seasons, with partial guarantees in place for both seasons.
