The Orlando Magic are in the midst of a saga that may eventually lead to their superstar, Dwight Howard, leaving the team before the 2011-12 NBA season even starts. But Orlando is doing other things while Howard trade rumors swirl, and the Magic have reportedly signed guard Jason Richardson to a four-year contract, according to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski. Wojnarowski reports the deal is worth $25 million.
Richardson came to Orlando in a mid-season deal with Phoenix in 2011 that swapped him for Vince Carter, and was expected to provide scoring and shooting for a Magic team with NBA title dreams. But while Richardson scored nearly 14 points per game with the Magic, Orlando was knocked out the 2011 NBA playoffs in the first round by the Atlanta Hawks.
