The 32-year-old veteran has averages of 10.3 points and 4.7 rebounds in 782 NBA games over 12 seasons with Orlando, Miami, New York, Phoenix and the LA Clippers.
Orlando also waived forwards Justin Harper and Chris Johnson. Harper, who averaged 3.7 points in six preseason games, appeared in 14 games as a rookie last season for the Magic and averaged 1.4 points. Johnson signed as a free agent earlier this month and appeared in four preseason games.
