The Orlando Magic have agreed to terms with guard E”Twaun Moore. They’ll announce more of the signing in the near future, two sources told theÂ Orlando Sentinel.
â€śThere’s an opportunity there in Orlando, and I think he wanted to seize the opportunity,â€ť said Mark Bartelstein, who is Moore’s agent. â€śBoth [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.â€ť
Moore is a 6 foot 4, guard who played in 38 games for the Boston Celtics during is rookie season last year. While on the Magic he’ll get a chance to compete withÂ Ish Smith for the backup point-guard job. He could see time behindÂ Arron AfflaloÂ andÂ J.J. Redick at shooting guard.
While he was a second round pick, he averaged 2.9 points and 0.9 rebounds in 8.7 minutes per game. He has lots ofÂ potential. I think that this was a good move by Orlando.
