E’Twaun Moore had his best game of the year against the Orlando Magic last year, by far, and it seems they took note of what the second round pick could offer.
The Magic have signed Moore to a two year deal worth the league minimum in both years. It’s hardly a contract for Moore to hang his hat on, but he’s happy to be in the league and should be a productive player for a Magic team that currently has only four guards and 12 forwards/centers.
Moore will add depth to the Magic backcourt and could end up being a favorite of Magic coach Jacque Vaughn. Though the Purdue product only played in 38 of the C’s 66 games last year, and averaged only eight minutes per game in those appearances, he’ll have every chance to make a much bigger impact for the Magic this season.
The tutelage of Magic star guard Aaron Afflalo should prove instrumental, as Afflalo himself came into the league as an unheralded rookie, just like Moore, but eventually developed into a strong starter whose defense at one point was far better than his offense, much like Moore.
