Orlando Magic Waive Point Guard Jameer Nelson

Jameer Nelson

The Orlando Magic waived point guard Jameer Nelson on Monday, parting ways with their longest-tenured player. Many have deemed the move as a salary cap causalty, while others feel it was the final page they needed to turn before embarking on a new chapter in Magic basketball.

Whatever the reason for Nelson’s departure, the free agent market just got themselves a damn good point guard.

Speculation has already begun on where Nelson could wind up, but first he’ll need to make clear the wire before he truly becomes a free agent and with $8 million owed to him on his final year, I’d be a bit surprised if he didn’t.
