Orlando Magic Waive Christian Eyenga, Armon Johnson

Raj Mehta - US Presswire

After dismissing Johnson and Eyenga, Orlando has made its first two cuts of training camp. Its roster stands at 18 players.

The Orlando Magic announced Tuesday that they've made their first two roster cuts of the 2012/13 preseason, waiving swingman Christian Eyenga and combo guard Armon Johnson to bring their roster to 18 players.

Orlando acquired Eyenga from the Los Angeles Lakers in the Dwight Howard trade. A strained hamstring kept Eyenga out of action in each of Orlando's six exhibition games. In his two-year career, the 30th overall pick in the 2009 Draft has averaged 6.3 points and 2.7 rebounds per game. His $1.1 million salary for the forthcoming season is fully guaranteed, and as such will count against the Magic's salary cap.

Orlando signed Johnson for training camp in September. The former Nevada-Reno standout posted per-game averages of 3.2 points, 1.2 assists, and 1.6 turnovers through five preseason appearances for the Magic, shooting 38.1 percent from the field.

Tuesday's cuts leave the Magic with four players fighting for the club's 15th and final roster spot: Justin Harper, Chris Johnson, DeQuan Jones, and Josh McRoberts. All NBA teams must get their rosters down to 15 players or fewer by 5 PM Eastern on Monday, October 29th.
