The Orlando Magic will sign Dwayne Bacon to a two-year contract, Vincent Goodwill of Yahoo Sports reports. Bacon was not extended a qualifying offer after playing the 2019-20 season with the Charlotte Hornets.

Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports that Bacon’s two-year deal will start at the minimum, with a team option in 2021-22.

Bacon struggled from the field in his third season with the Hornets but is just one year removed from averaging 7.3 points per game in just over 17 minutes of action.

The 25-year-old will look to establish himself in Orlando’s rotation as they compete for another shot at the postseason.
