The Orlando Magic are trying to build a steady roster to help them compete for a playoff spot in the upcoming season. Today, the Magic do so by signing former NBA champion Marreese Speights to a one-year deal worth $2.1MM, according to USA Today.
Speights brings versatility by being able to play both the four and five spots on the court and especially by being able to stretch the floor with an excellent mid-range and modest three-point shot.
In addition, the 29-year old former Florida Gator product brings a winning background to the young Magic roster. He won an NBA championship with the Golden State Warriors in the 2014-2015 season.
Furthermore, Speights left Golden State for the Los Angeles Clippers last season and balled out. He finally finished a season by playing in all 82 games in his NBA career, plus he averaged 8.7 points and 4.5 rebounds per contest on an average of 15.7 minutes per game.
Lastly, Speights shot 37 percent from behind the arc and shot 45 percent from the field.
Note: Magic needed shooting help and get it here.
