Free agent forward Jeff Green will sign a one year, $15 million contract with the Orlando Magic, Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today reports.

Shams Charania of The Vertical confirmed the news.

Green, 29, averaged 11.7 points and 4.2 rebounds per game last season with the Clippers and Grizzlies. He was acquired by Los Angeles at the trade deadline for a future protected first-round pick. Over eight NBA seasons, he holds career averages of 14 points and 4.9 rebounds.

The Magic have been aggressive in the off-season, adding Serge Ibaka and Jodie Meeks via trade and D.J. Augustin through free agency already. Green slots into a frontcourt that also includes Nikola Vucevic and Aaron Gordon.
