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.
