Orlando Magic to waive Devyn Marble

Devyn Marble's time with the Orlando Magic is coming to an end.

With a Friday deadline to guarantee his contract for the 2016/17 season, the Magic are expected to waive the third-year swing man, according to the Orlando Sentinel's Josh Robbins.

Marble, 23, appeared in 44 games for the Magic, averaging 2.2 points, 1.6 rebounds, .7 assists and .5 steals per game in 10.4 minutes of action.

A four-year player at Iowa, Marble showed some upside on the defensive end, but struggled to shoot the ball with any consistency on the offensive end. His generally poor performance at the Orlando Pro Summer League last week likely didn't help matters either.

With over $101.3 million on the books for next season, the Magic sit roughly $7 million over the $94.1 million cap number the NBA released two weeks ago. The Magic have the $2.8 million room exception that they can still use as well.

Waiving Marble leaves the Magic even more thin on the wing. They'll need to sign, at the very least, one player to come in and fill the void behind Evan Fournier, Jodie Meeks and Mario Hezonja. Both Aaron Gordon and Jeff Green expect to see time at the small forward position as well, but one injury and the Magic will be struggling to find adequate coverage without at least one more signing.
