The Orlando Magic have reached an agreement with former Boston Celtics guard E’Twaun Moore. Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports Moore is expected to sign “in the coming days.” Hoops Hype reports Moore will sign a two year deal.
Moore, a 6’4 guard from Purdue, was the 55th overall pick in the 2011 draft by the Boston Celtics. Moore appeared in 38 games last year, averaging 2.9 points, 0.9 rebounds and 0.9 assists in 8.7 minutes per game. He shot 38.1% from the field and 37.8% from beyond the arc. Moore scored 16 points on 5-of-6 shooting in 18 minutes in a win over the Magic on January 26. Moore’s four three-pointers helped the Celtics erase a 27-point deficit.
In nine postseason games, Moore averaged 0.6 points in 2.3 minutes per game.
The addition of Moore expands Orlando’s roster to 17 and probably spells the end of second-year guard DeAndre Liggins.
