After struggling to help the Magic spell their struggles against pressing defenses, the Orlando Magic have announced that they have waived guard Larry Hughes.

Hughes, who was signed as a free agent by Orlando on Dec. 9, appeared in nine games this season with the Magic, averaging 1.3 ppg. in 12.7 minpg.

It looks like the Magic have already found Hughes’ replacement as well in the form of 2nd year PG Ishmael Smith. Yahoo Sports is reporting that Ish Smith will be brought up from the D-League tomorrow. Smith was waived by the Golden State Warriors on Jan 13th.
