Look for the Magic to sign an older player to give a bit more balance to the roster. Also, it’s possible the team will attempt to add another power forward. The team reportedly has given consideration to pursuing Toronto Raptors restricted free agent Patrick Patterson. Orlando Sentinel

In an expected move that makes the Orlando Magic even younger, the team waived 31-year-old power forward Jason Maxiell on Friday. Maxiell’s salary of $2.5 million for the 2014-15 season was fully unguaranteed if the team (or a team that had acquired him via trade) had waived him on or before July 10. By waiving him now, Maxiell’s salary is erased from the Magic’s cap figure for the upcoming season. Orlando Sentinel

Jared Zwerling: Jameer Nelson has about 15 teams interested. Healthy, wants to win/play. Also a key player mentor. Guards market may dictate $5-7 mil range. Wouldn't be surprised if SAS (Mills' injury), OKC (Fisher retired) & MIA (PG shooter & Bron needs ball-handling help) all inquire on Nelson. Twitter @JaredZwerling

David Aldridge: Two yr/$9M deal for Ben Gordon (Yahoo! first) has club option for yr two, per sources. Magic want to see if he can get through '14 healthy. Twitter @daldridgetnt

Ken Berger: Ben Gordon has agreed to a two-year, $9m deal with Orlando, league source confirms. Both years guaranteed. Twitter @KBergCBS

Gordon was selected by Orlando in the first round (fourth overall) of the 2014 NBA Draft. Payton was selected by Philadelphia in the first round (tenth overall) of the 2014 NBA Draft.

Both will participate in the 2014 Southwest Airlines Orlando Pro Summer League, taking place at the Magic’s practice court at the Amway Center from July 5-11. NBA.com
