Von Wafer set to become newest Orlando Magic player
It looks like Glen Davis isn’t the only former Celtic set to join Orlando. Alex Kennedy of HOOPSWORLD is reporting that Von Wafer will be included in the Brandon Bass/Big Baby swap. Wafer immediately went straight to work in trying to keep Dwight Howard in Orlando.

Kennedy reports: “Wafer was an unrestricted free agent, but Orlando had him added to the deal in exchange for the $1.84 million traded-player exception they acquired last season from the Washington Wizards.
Wafer will sign a three-year deal with the Magic, but the final two years won’t be guaranteed. Last year, the 26-year-old played 58 games with the Celtics. He received interest from a number of other teams before landing with Orlando.
Last year, Wafer averaged 3.2 points in a limited role with the Celtics. During the lockout, Wafer was one of the most productive players overseas as he averaged a league-leading 19.9 points with the Italian team Vanoli Cremona.”
Florida State Seminole fans will remember Wafer from his up and down playing career in Tallahassee from 2003-2005.
The 6’5″ Wafer provides scoring depth at the SG position and the addition likely means that either DeAndre Liggins or Larry Hughes will not make the final roster.
