Ex-Celtic Moe Wagner Signs With Magic: Report


Moritz Wagner #21 of the Washington Wizards dunks in front of Jaren Jackson Jr. #13 of the Memphis Grizzlies during the second half at Capital One Arena.

Moe Wagner has found a new home after an abbreviated stay in Beantown — and it just so happens to be in the Eastern Conference. According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the big man has inked a deal with the Orlando Magic for the remainder of the 2020-21 season.

Wagner’s arrival in Central Florida will mark the third stop for the 6-foot-11-inch center/forward this season, who started the season with the Washington Wizards before being dealt to the Cs as part of a three-team deal at the trade deadline.

Expect Wagner to slot behind Wendell Carter Jr. and Mo Bamba in Orlando’s center rotation.

Wagner Has Been Productive in Limited Action

In total, Wagner has appeared in 34 games this season, spanning across stints with both the Wizards and the Celtics. Neither team asked him to man major minutes, although he did see more floor time while in D.C. (15.0 mpg) as compared to Boston (6.8 mpg).

Combined he’s averaged 12.8 minutes per game on the year, showing well on a per-minute basis. The former first-round pick is currently averaging 5.6 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.1 assists while shooting 48.5% from the field. Wagner’s most prolific pro campaign came one season ago, where he notched career highs in points (8.7), rebounds (4.9) and field goal percentage (54.5).
