This is a smart move by the Orlando Magic. Exactly the kind of risks they should take during this rebuild.

They may be taking on a second year player the Celtics liked last year but couldn’t keep in their “win now” mode. From Joshua Robins of the Orlando Sentinel on twitter.

The #Magic expect to sign former #Celtics G E’Twaun Moore in the coming days, the @OrlandoSentinel has learned….. E’Twaun Moore should provide depth at both guard spots & could compete with Ish Smith for the backup PG role.

Moore is a guy who seems to be improving. He got in just 38 games for the Celtics last year and shot just 38.1 percent when he did. He turned the ball over too much and just generally looked like a rookie.

But at Summer League in Orlando back in July he looked good for Boston, he may have been their best player. He was way more consistent than Jared Sullinger and he showed some real potential. Like he should get some minutes next year potential.

But alas, that is not what was in the cards with the Celtics. If this is finalized, he should get some run in Orlando and have a chance to prove he has a spot in the league.

    Good kid, worked hard in practice putting up a lot of shots with Pavlovic and Bradley. Pretty good shooter. Magic fans actually witnessed his best performance last season when in Orlando the Celtics were down like 24, in the Second half he goes 4-4 on 3 Pointers and scores 16 points as him and Pierce brought them back and won the game.
