Now, Orlando is adding a veteran to its backcourt:
Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN:
Free agent guard E’Twaun Moore has agreed to a one-year, $2.6M deal with the Orlando Magic, his agent Mark Bartelstein of @PrioritySports tells ESPN.
— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) September 8, 2021
Moore’s minimum salary: $2,641,691.
He spent his second and third NBA seasons with the Magic. After helping the Suns reach the NBA Finals last season (playing a backup rotation role with Chris Paul out in the Western Conference finals), Moore returns to Orlando as an established and reliable professional.
But the rebuilding Magic are almost certainly headed toward an awful season, regardless. Moore’s main role will be setting an example for his younger teammates.
If all goes perfectly, he’ll impart wisdom then return Orlando a small draft pick from a winning team seeking depth before the trade deadline.
