PRICE IS RIGHT, AT LEAST FOR MAGIC

The Orlando Magic moved to bolster their backcourt scoring Monday, obtaining three-point shooting threat Mark Price from the Golden State Warriors for guard Brian Shaw and forward David Vaughn.

Price, 33, is an 11th-year pro who's the NBA's all-time leader in free throw percentage (.907). He averaged 11.3 points, 4.9 assists and 2.6 rebounds for Golden State last year.

Price is expected to back up starting point guard Derek Harper and replace Dennis Scott, who was traded to Dallas during the offseason, as Orlando's three-point scoring threat.

In other NBA news: Dee Kantner, 36, and Violet Palmer, 33, were to be hired today as full-time referees, marking the first time in major pro sports in the United States that females will officiate regular-season games in an all-male league.
