The Orlando Magic announced Tuesday they've waived Anthony Randolph, just one day after acquiring the six-year veteran from the Chicago Bulls. The news does not come as a surprise: Orlando signalled its intention to waive Randolph when it initially announced the Chicago deal.
Monday evening, the Magic sent to Chicago the Draft rights to Milovan Raković in exchange for Randolph, two future second-round Draft choices, and cash. The trade cut costs for the Bulls and enabled the Magic to add assets to their collection.
Randolph, who turned 25 Tuesday, owns career averages of 7.1 points and 4.3 rebounds on 45.3 percent shooting. The Golden State Warriors made him the 14th overall pick in the 2008 NBA Draft.
Cutting ties with Randolph keeps Orlando's roster at 13 players, the league minimum. That figure does not include second-round Draft choice Devyn Marble, who has yet to sign with the Magic.
