Free agent guard E'Twaun Moore is reportedly close to being signed by the Orlando Magic, according to various sources. Per Jorge Sierra of Hoops Hype, the deal between Moore and Orlando is likely to be for two years, though monetary terms have yet to be disclosed. Moore was traded by the Boston Celtics to the Houston Rockets in the deal that netted Boston guard Courtney Lee, but was subsequently waived by the Rockets.
Moore, a 2011 second-round pick of the Celtics, appeared in 38 games in 2011, averaging 2.9 points per game on 38.1 percent shooting from the field and 37.8 percent shooting from the three-point line. In this year's Summer League, Moore led Boston in scoring with 14 points per game on 43.1 percent shooting from the field and 40 percent shooting from distance.
In Orlando, Moore joins ex-Denver Nuggets swingman Arron Afflalo as a new face in the Magic backcourt.
