SEPTEMBER 9: The Magic have officially signed Moore, the team announced today in a press release.
It’s a veteran’s minimum contract for a player with Moore’s experience. He began his NBA career during the 2011/12 season.
Moore appeared in 27 games with the Suns on a one-year contract last season, including one start. He averaged 4.9 PPG and 1.5 APG in 14.4 MPG but struggled with his 3-point shot (31.4%). He also saw action in seven of Phoenix’s postseason games, averaging 2.4 PPG in 6.6 MPG.
This will be Moore’s second stint with the Magic. He appeared in 154 games with Orlando during his second and third seasons in the league.
Moore’s NBA career has also included stops in Boston, Chicago and New Orleans. He’s appeared in 598 regular-season games, averaging 7.9 PPG and 1.8 APG in 21.o MPG while making 38.8% of his 3-point attempts.
Orlando already had 17 players on its official roster, including 14 with guaranteed deals. Adding Moore makes it less likely that those without guaranteed deals will have a spot on the opening-night roster.
