Jayne Kamin-Oncea/US PresswireThe Orlando Magic have signed former Celtics guard E'Twaun Moore.
Two players that Boston shipped out in last month's sign-and-trade deal that brought back Courtney Lee landed in the headlines Tuesday. E'Twaun Moore inked a two-year deal with the Orlando Magic, while Sean Williams was formally waived by the Houston Rockets.

For Moore, it's a nice landing spot after being waived by Houston immediately after the Lee deal. Moore played the best ball of his rookie season in Orlando and had a good summer league there, too. Even better for him, he'll get a real chance to make an impression on a young team headed into rebuilding mode.

For Williams, the move is no surprise. The Rockets had until late this month to waive him before his salary for the 2012-13 season became guaranteed. In a league thin on big men, he'll get a look from others in need of size to fill out their roster.
