It seems as if the Orlando Magic weren't satisfied with just making it to the NBA Finals.

Apparently, based on the inordinate amounts of cash they've spent on their roster this summer, they're quite interested in winning it.

And now, the Magic have reportedly agreed in principle with former Suns' forward Matt Barnes on a two-year deal worth around $3.2 million.

In his one and only season in Phoenix, Barnes averaged 10 points and about six rebounds per game.

Barnes shares an agent with Magic center Dwight Howard, who apparently was quite instrumental in convincing Barnes to come to Florida.

Barnes' contract reportedly will include a player option for a third year worth $1.6 million.

The Magic are also close to picking up another former Warrior, point guard CJ Watson.

The third-year point guard averaged 10 points, three rebounds, and three assists in close to 24 minutes per game last season in Golden State.

Watson, a restricted free agent, turned down a one-year, $2.3 million offer from the Philadelphia 76ers, determined to find a three-year deal.
