Ridnour started last season with the Milwaukee Bucks and was traded to the Charlotte Bobcats (now Hornets) mid-season. For the year, he averaged 5.0 points and 2.9 assists per game, well below from his career marks of 9.6 and 4.6.
Ridnour will join a backcourt stocked with young talent, including 2013 number two overall pick Victor Oladipo and 2014 first-rounder Elfrid Payton. The Magic also selected forward Aaron Gordon with the fourth pick in 2014 and signed center Channing Frye to a four-year, $32 million contract this offseason.
The Orlando Magic indeed are finalizing a deal with PG Luke Ridnour. — Josh Robbins (@JoshuaBRobbins) July 16, 2014
