NBA Rumors: Orlando Magic to Sign E'Twaun Moore, According to Reports

Paul Abell-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Moore averaged 2.9 points per game in his rookie season with Boston.

The Orlando Magic are likely to sign free-agent combo guard E'Twaun Moore "in the coming days," reports Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel. Jorge Sierra of HoopsHype.com reports Moore's deal with Orlando is for two seasons.

The Boston Celtics made Moore, a Purdue product, the 55th overall selection in the 2011 NBA Draft. He averaged 2.9 points per game in 38 appearances as a rookie. Boston traded Moore to the Houston Rockets in a multi-team deal on July 20th, netting former Magic guard Courtney Lee from Houston in return. The Rockets subsequently waived Moore.

Moore led the Celtics' summer squad in scoring during the Orlando Pro Summer League, posting 14 points per game on 43.1 percent shooting from the field and 40 percent shooting from three-point distance. In two games for Boston's entry in the Las Vegas Summer League, Moore averaged 17 points per game.

Coincidentally, Moore's best professional game came against the Magic, shooting 5-of-6 from the field and 4-of-4 from beyond the arc for a career-best 16 points in a Boston victory on January 26th.

If signed, Moore would be the Magic's 17th player under contract for the 2012/13 season. That figure does not include second-year swingman DeAndre Liggins, Orlando's second-round choice in the 2011 Draft. The maximum roster size is 15.
