The Orlando Magic will make Ronnie Price their first free-agent addition of the offeason, reports Chris Haynes of Comcast SportsNet Northwest.
Price, 30, spent the 2012/13 season with the Portland Trail Blazers. In 39 appearances, all off the bench, Price averaged 2.7 points, 1.1 rebounds, and 1.9 assists in 13.1 minutes per game. Portland waived him at the 2013 NBA trading deadline after acquiring Eric Maynor, another point guard, via trade.
Price went undrafted out of Utah Valley State in 2005 but has carved out an eight-year NBA career as a role-player. He owns career averages of 3.5 points, 1.1 rebounds, and 1.4 assists in 11.6 minutes, shooting 38.3 percent from the floor and 30 percent on three-pointers.
Price began his career with the Sacramento Kings, where he remained for two seasons before latching on with the Utah Jazz. His first season in Salt Lake was his finest as a professional, as he averaged 3.7 points per game on a career-best 43.1 percent shooting from the floor.
Since his run with the Jazz ended, Price has signed one-year deals with the Phoenix Suns and later with Portland.
