The Orlando Magic waive second year center Stephen Zimmerman

The Orlando Magic have decided to waive former second round pick, Stephen Zimmerman according to Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel.

Stephen Zimmerman was drafted 41st in the 2016 NBA Draft by the Magic. Upon his selection, he was projected as a backup option to starter Nikola Vucevic. The Magic had hoped to see improvements from Zimmerman after short stints with the Erie Bayhawks to increase his playing time last season.

After a lackluster campaign in the Orlando Magic Pro Summer League, the Magic decided to not guarantee his salary for the upcoming season.

In 19 career games with the Orlando Magic, he averaged 1.2 points, 1.8 rebounds, and 0.8 assists per game.

After this recent transaction, the Magic will have 11 guaranteed players under contract. The team only has two centers under contract in Bismack Biyombo and Nikola Vucevic.
