The Orlando Magic were on the hunt for another point guard but once they signed veteran Luke Ridnour, it looked like their search was over. That clearly wasn’t the case. According to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports, the Magic have agreed to a deal with free agent point guard Peyton Siva, who was waived by the Detroit Pistons two weeks ago. Peyton Siva has agreed to terms with the Orlando Magic, a source told Yahoo Sports. — Marc J. Spears (@SpearsNBAYahoo) July 29, 2014 Siva helped lead the Louisville Cardinals to the 2013 National Title and then was drafted with the 56th-overall pick in the second round of the draft. Siva averaged 2.3 points and 1.4 assists in 9.3 minutes per game. He shot 31.6% from the field while appearing in 24 games. Siva played with the Pistons in the Orlando Pro Summer League earlier this month. He had an impressive first two games before he injured his hamstring, but after the Pistons signed veteran point guard D.J. Augustin, they cut ties with Siva – they simply didn’t have the space to keep him. Siva is the 16th player on the Magic’s roster so it is like two of the Magic’s current players don’t make into the regular season and could wind up playing for their new D-League affiliate, the Erie Bayhawks.
