Magic sign veteran guard Luke Ridnour to 2-year deal
JUL 25, 2014 5:52p ET
Ridnour, 33, split last season playing for Milwaukee and Charlotte. The addition of him, Ben Gordon and Willie Green in the past month brings experience to a backcourt where second-year pro Victor Oladipo and rookie Elfrid Payton could be the Magic's starters next season.
Both TNT and NBA.com have reported Ridnour's contract is worth $5.5 million over two years, with only the first year being guaranteed -- making it similar to the one the Magic gave guard Ronnie Price a year ago. The Magic waived Price on July 2.
Ridnour has averaged 9.6 points a game for his career, which began when he was a first-round pick in 2003 by the Seattle SuperSonics. He ranks eighth among active players in career free-throw shooting percentage, having made 86.2 percent of his attempts.
