Magic Sign Outlaw

From the Orlando Sentinel:

One of the most popular players in Orlando Magic history has returned to the team. The Magic announced today they had agreed to terms with free agent forward Bo Outlaw.

Per team policy, terms of the deal are not disclosed.

Outlaw (6-foot-8, 220) appeared in 39 regular season games last season with Phoenix and was added to help the team's depth, but was rarely used as Suns advanced to the Western Conference Finals. He averaged 0.7 points last year.

A 12-year NBA veteran, Outlaw was undrafted by an NBA franchise. He has played in 839 career NBA regular season games with the L.A. Clippers, Orlando, Memphis and Phoenix, averaging 5.7 points and 5.1 rebounds.

Outlaw, 34, played for the Magic for four-plus seasons, starting in 1997-98. A fan favorite known for his hustle, Outlaw, along with a first-round pick and cash, was traded to the Phoenix Suns for Jud Buechler in November 2001. The Suns used the pick in the 2002 draft to select Amare Stoudemire of Cypress Creek High.

Outlaw spent two seasons with the Suns, was dealt to the Memphis Grizzlies before the 2003-04 season, waived by Memphis last season and re-signed by Phoenix.

Outlaw ranks on the Magic's all-time career list in blocked shots (2nd, 518), rebounds (5th, 1,977), steals (7th, 374), assists (9th, 747) and minutes played (10th, 8,824).
