The Orlando Magic have agreed to trade power forward Drew Gooden, Steven Hunter and the rights to second-round draft pick Anderson Varejao of Brazil to the Cleveland Cavaliers for center/forward Tony Battie.
Hunter, a free agent, had to be signed to a new contract before the deal becomes official later today.
Battie, 6-11, 240, averaged 5.6 points and 4.9 rebounds last season, playing in both Boston and Cleveland.
Gooden averaged 11.6 points and 6.5 rebounds last season, his first full year in Orlando.
