Magic Waive Doron Lamb, E’Twaun Moore Becomes Unrestricted Free Agent
The NBA free agency period officially begins tomorrow, Orlando Summer League begins Saturday, and the Magic have decided to waive guard Doron Lamb while also choosing not to utilize a $1.15 million qualifying offer to retain E’Twaun Moore. Moore is now an unrestricted free agent.
The Orlando Magic have decided to waive Doron Lamb.

Lamb was set to make $915,243 in the ’14-’15 season. However, his contract was completely unguaranteed if waived by July 1st. Lamb will be owed nothing now. The 22-year-old was acquired from Milwaukee in February 2013 in the Tobias Harris-J.J. Redick trade. Lamb was originally expected to participate for the Magic at Orlando Summer League. In 77 total games with Orlando, Doron averaged 3.5 ppg, 1.0 rpg, and 0.7 apg on 39.5 FG% and 41.4 3PT%.
Also reported by the Orlando Sentinel’s Josh Robbins, the Magic decided to pass up on retaining the rights to combo guard E’Twaun Moore. The 25-year-old was signed by the Magic in September 2012. In 154 games played with Orlando, Moore averaged 7.1 ppg, 2.1 apg, and 2.0 rpg on 41.0 FG% and 34.6 3PT%.
The Draft additions of Elfrid Payton and Roy Devyn Marble clearly played a large role in the decisions to let Lamb and Moore go, as are the expected large number of guards that will be on the Magic’s Summer League roster.
