The Orlando Magic have waived Timofey Mozgov, President of Basketball Operations Jeff Weltman announced.
According to Josh Robbins, the Magic intend to stretch Mozgov’s salary over the next three years which will create space under the luxury tax to potentially re-sign restricted free agent center Khem Birch.
The 32-year-old Russian center didn’t play any games this past season due to a knee injury. His last playing stretch was the 31 games with the Nets in the 2017-18 season when he averaged 4.2 points and 3.2 rebounds on a bit over 11 minutes of playtime.
