The Orlando Magic have continued their overhaul of their backcourt by signing veteran point guard Luke Ridnour, the team announced. Per club policy, Orlando did not publicly disclose terms of the contract, but David Aldridge of TNT and NBA.com reported Wednesday evening that the deal is worth $5.5 million across two seasons, with the second season unguaranteed.
Ridnour, 33, brings to the Magic 11 years of NBA experience and steadiness at the lead guard spot. He owns career averages of 9.6 points, 2.3 rebounds, 4.6 assists, and one steal per game. In his most recent campaign, split between the Milwaukee Bucks and Charlotte Bobcats, the former Oregon Duck posted per-game averages of five points and 2.9 assists in a more complementary role.
Among guards under contract with the Magic, only Victor Oladipo spent the 2013/14 season with the team. Its new additions are Ridnour, Ben Gordon, Willie Green, Evan Fournier, and Devyn Marble.
