The Orlando Magic have agreed to terms with free-agent guard Ben Gordon, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports. The two-year agreement will be worth $9 million, says Wojnarowski. The earliest Gordon can sign is July 10th, when the NBA lifts its moratorium on player movement.

Gordon, 31, spent the last two seasons with the Charlotte Bobcats, averaging 10 points per game across 94 appearances. He shot 40 percent from the floor and 37.7 percent from three-point distance.

Gordon is best known from his five-year stint with the Chicago Bulls, who made him the third overall pick in the 2004 NBA Draft. As a rookie, he earned Sixth Man of the Year honors.

Gordon gives the Magic veteran experience, three-point shooting, and depth on the perimeter. Their other wings under contract are Evan Fournier, Willie Green, and Maurice Harkless.
