ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -Forward Marcin Gortat signed with the Orlando Magic on Monday.
The Magic acquired the 6-foot-11 Gortat from Phoenix on draft night in 2005 for cash. He was chosen in the second round with the 57th overall pick.
Gortat has played summer league for the Magic the past three years, but then returned to Germany each time. Gortat averaged 10.4 points, 5.6 rebounds and 1.1 blocks last year in the Euroleague for RheinEnergie Koln.
He is the third big man Orlando has pulled in this summer after All-Star Rashard Lewis and veteran Adonal Foyle. The Magic lost 7-footer Darko Milicic in free agency to the Memphis Grizzlies.
