Report: Former Celtics guard Moore signs with Magic

The Celtics liked E'Twaun Moore in his one shortened season with the team, but when an opportunity arose to acquire then Rockets guard Courtney Lee in a deal, they couldn't pass that up.

Moore was shipped to Houston with fellow Boilermaker JaJuan Johnson, Sean Williams, and a second round pick. He was quickly released by the team.

But thanks to the new CBA, the Celtics couldn't turn around and re-sign Moore to a new deal. They had to wait until next season to do so, if they were interested.

But unless Moore is released by the Magic, he won't be available. ESPN.com reports that the Magic and Moore have agreed upon a two-year deal, both of which are for the league minimum.

Moore played in 38 games for the Celtics in his rookie year, averaging 8.7 minutes per game. He averaged 2.9 points, 0.9 assists, and 0.9 rebounds per game, shooting 38-percent from the field, and 38-percent from three-point range.

Moore also got limited time in nine postseason games for Boston.
