The No. 3 overall pick in the 2003 NBA Draft last played for the Charlotte Hornets in 2013-14, but was cut after playing in 19 games and averaging 5.2 points. Gordon was ineligible to sign with any other teams, as Charlotte cut Gordon a day after the playoff eligibility deadline passed for free agents.
The deal has a team option for the second season, as the Magic want to see if Gordon can play through the 2014-15 season healthy.
