Anthony Randolph Waived by Magic
A day after being acquired in a trade with the Chicago Bulls, the Orlando Magic have officially waived Anthony Randolph. Today (July 15th) is Anthony’s birthday. Randolph was set to earn $1,825,359 in the 2014-2015 campaign. That amount is fully guaranteed, counts against this season’s salary cap, and will be fully paid out by the Magic as long as another team doesn’t claim Anthony off waivers. The Louisiana State University product who was born in Germany has now technically been on 6 NBA teams in 6 seasons and will now be seeking employment elsewhere.
In his career, Randolph has played in 252 regular season games having started 43 of them and has averaged 7.1 ppg and 4.3 rpg on 45.3 FG% and 24.1 3PT%. The 6′ 10″ forward has also played in 5 career playoff games with the Denver Nuggets back in 2013, tallying 5.2 ppg on 81.8 FG%. It’s evident that Magic GM Rob Hennigan didn’t want Randolph taking away minutes from his other players.
