Moore, who was dealt away by the Celtics this offseason as part of the deal that netted Boston Courtney Lee, has been searching for a new home after getting waived by the Rockets. According to the Orlando Sentinel, Moore has agreed to contract terms with the Magic, and the team will announce the move in the near future.
Moore played sparingly with the C's in his rookie campaign in 2011-12. He appeared in 38 games and averaged 2.9 points in 8.7 minutes per contest. He should see increased playing time in Orlando, however, which will give him an opportunity to show off whatever potential he may have.
"There's an opportunity there in Orlando, and I think he wanted to seize the opportunity," Mark Bartelstein, Moore's agent, reportedly said. "Both [Magic general manager] Rob Hennigan and [Magic assistant GM] Matt Lloyd did a great job of recruiting him, making their pitch and explaining why it'll be a great fit."
Moore's deal with the Magic is reportedly expected to be for two seasons. The 23-year-old was drafted in the second round (55th overall) out of Purdue in 2011.
