The Orlando Magic have reportedly reached a verbal agreement with Warriors’ free agent Mikael Pietrus for a deal believed to be close to be worth about $5 million. It’s a move that has serious impact on other players.
It means that whatever interest they had in Corey Maggette is now a wrap. Ita lso means that most likely other Magic free agents like Keyon Dooling and Mo Evans will be looking for work elsewhere … which might not be bad things for the Magic.
Pietrus should be a good fit with Orlando. The guy is an athlete and a solid defender who, after being benched for much of last season in Golden State, is looking to prove himself. Good signing by Orlando.
