Jason Maxiell to Sign Two-Year Deal With the Orlando Magic

The Orlando Magic have reached an agreement ($5 million over two years) with free agent forward Jason Maxiell, ending his eight-year run with the Detroit Pistons. Per the Detroit News and Yahoo! Sports: “It’s official. Jason Maxiell to Orlando [...] The Magic hold an option on Maxiell’s $2.5 million for the 2014-15 season, sources said. Maxiell, 30, has been a sturdy, dependable rotation player and brings toughness and tenacity to a young, developing Magic roster. Maxiell, 6-foot-7 and 260 pounds, can play power forward and give the Magic minutes at center, too. He averaged 6.9 points and a career-high 5.7 rebounds in 72 games for Detroit last season.
