Via Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports:

Free-agent guard Ben Gordon has reached agreement on a two-year, $9 million contract with the Orlando Magic, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

The second year of the deal is a team option that needs to be guaranteed by Orlando before July 1, 2015, a source told Yahoo Sports.

The Magic are working to improve their perimeter shooting and expect Gordon to be a value signing to complement the young backcourt of Elfrid Payton Jr. and Victor Oladipo.
