Magic Waive Richardson, Harper, Johnson

The Magic have waived Quentin Richardson, Justin Harper, and Chris Johnson, a team official told Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel (via Twitter).  Richardson will be owed $5MM over the next two years while Harper is guaranteed $762K for this season.  Johnson's deal was non-guaranteed.

Richardson was set to earn $2.627MM this season and held a $2.808MM player option for 2013/14 that now becomes guaranteed after being waived.  The guard came to Orlando on a widely panned four-year deal worth more than $10MM in the 2010 offseason.  In two years with the club, the 32-year-old averaged 4.4 PPG and 2.9 RPG.

Harper, 23, was taken with the 32nd overall pick in the 2011 draft by the Cavs before being traded to Orlando for two future second-round selections.  The big man saw time in 14 games for the Magic last season.
