NBA training camp 2013: Former Magic players DeQuan Jones and Corey Maggette waived

Shawne Williams and DeQuan Jones - Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sp

The Kings and Spurs have requested waivers on DeQuan Jones and Corey Maggette, respectively.

Two former Orlando Magic players received some bad news on Tuesday, as the teams that invited them to training camp decided to let them go.

DeQuan Jones, who improbably played the 2012/13 season with the Magic after ungoing undrafted out of Miami and beating Quentin Richardson for the team's final roster spot, went to camp with the Sacramento Kings. The club announced Tuesday that it has waived him and fellow invitee Brandon Heath.

Jones, 23, made only one preseason appearance for the Kings, shooting 1-of-1 for two points in less than two minutes against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Elsewhere, the San Antonio Spurs waived Corey Maggette, along with two other players, on Tuesday. Maggette spent the 1999/2000 season, his rookie year, with the Magic, after which season Orlando traded him to the Los Angeles Clippers for a future first-round Draft pick as general manager John Gabriel endeavored to clear salary-cap space to use in free agency. Maggette went on to play eight seasons with the Clippers, during which time he averaged 17.3 points per game on 44.8 percent shooting.

Maggette averaged 6.5 points and 3.5 rebounds per game in his two exhibition appearances with the Spurs, shooting 2-of-12 from the floor.

The Magic's own training-camp invitees--specifically Mickell Gladness, Manny Harris, Solomon Jones, and Kris Joseph--have largely acquitted themselves so far in preseason play, and the team has yet to announce any cuts. Jones and Gladness, in particular, were instrumental in Orlando's preseason win against the Dallas Mavericks on Monday.
