Orlando Magic Waive Von Wafer

In a move that one should have expected, the Orlando Magic waived journeyman shooting guard Von Wafer on Tuesday, the team announced. The 26-year-old, whom Orlando acquired in a sign-and-trade deal with the Boston Celtics involving Brandon Bass and Glen Davis, had two years remaining on his contract, but both were fully unguaranteed. Wafer will be an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

Wafer appeared in 33 games for Orlando in the lockout-shortened 2011/12 campaign, averaging 5.9 points in 14.2 minutes. He shot a career-best 45.2 percent from the field and 35.9 percent from three-point range.

Neither Orlando nor Wafer is likely to lose much sleep, so to speak, after this move. The Magic are well stocked at shooting guard, with Jason Richardson and J.J. Redick under contract. Wafer didn't stand a chance to leapfrog either Richardson or Redick in the rotation, so it's best for him to continue his career elsewhere.
