"The Magic signed Ridnour, a pass-first point guard, to a two-year contract Friday."
According to the report, the Magic had high interest in signing Ridnour from the beginning of free agency as they were looking for a back court leader. Ridnour has certainly signed on to a rebuilding project in Orlando, but will bring his much needed veteran leadership to a very young team. 12 of the 15 players the Magic have under contract are 25-years-old or younger. Ridnour is an 11-year, pass first veteran, who the Magic hope will mentor young guards like Victor Oladipo and recently drafted Elfrid Payton.
