Report: Magic re-signing C Moe Wagner to two-year contract

The Orlando Magic are bringing back center Moe Wagner on a two-year, $22 million contract, ESPN reported Tuesday.

The Magic had declined Wagner’s $8 million team option, making him a free agent this weekend. Both sides, however, were interested in a longer-term deal, ESPN reported. Wagner, 27, has been teammates for three seasons in Orlando with his 22-year-old brother, forward Franz Wagner.

Moe Wagner played in 80 games with one start last season and averaged 10.9 points, 4.3 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 17.7 minutes.

In six seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers (2018-19), Washington Wizards (2019-21), Boston Celtics (2021) and Magic (2021-present), Wagner is averaging 8.8 points, 3.9 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 333 games (56 starts).

The Lakers selected him with the 25th overall pick of the 2018 NBA Draft out of Michigan.
