E’Twaun Moore to Leave Orlando


The Orlando Magic’s only restricted free agent is leaving town.

The Magic have rescinded the qualifying offer they gave guard E’Twaun Moore, meaning that he will become an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

Moore was scheduled to make $1,148,163 million this upcoming season but will now get to test the waters of free agency instead.

He signed as a free agent with the club in September of 2012 and played two seasons with the Magic, averaging 7.1 points per game in 154 contests and shooting better than 41 per cent from the floor.

He primarily played at shooting guard with the Magic and provided good minutes off the bench.

Moore will no doubt get picked up by another team in free agency due to his size and his ability to hit threes too.

The addition of not only Payton in the draft, but also Roy Devyn Marble, meant that there were going to be little to no minutes for Moore moving forward so letting him go to unrestricted free agency makes sense for the Magic.
