Jalen Suggs fell to the Magic in the draft, deepening a stockpile of young guards that already included Cole Anthony, Markelle Fultz and R.J. Hampton.

Now, Orlando is adding a veteran to its backcourt:

E’Twaun Moore.

Moore’s minimum salary: $2,641,691.

He spent his second and third NBA seasons with the Magic. After helping the Suns reach the NBA Finals last season (playing a backup rotation role with Chris Paul out in the Western Conference finals), Moore returns to Orlando as an established and reliable professional.

The 32-year-old combo guard might even have a path to playing time with Michael Carter-Williams injured.

But the rebuilding Magic are almost certainly headed toward an awful season, regardless. Moore’s main role will be setting an example for his younger teammates.

If all goes perfectly, he’ll impart wisdom then return Orlando a small draft pick from a winning team seeking depth before the trade deadline.
