9:25pm: The Magic have waived center Nnanna Egwu, Josh Robbins of The Orlando Sentinel reports (Twitter link). Egwu was in camp on a non-guaranteed deal, so Orlando won’t be responsible for any salary as a result of this move.

Egwu had played for the Magic in the summer league this year, where he logged averages of 3.2 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.4 blocks in 20.0 minutes per game across five contests. He appeared in four preseason contests for Orlando, averaging a single point in 9.3 minutes per appearance. The 6’11” 23-year-old spent four seasons at Illinois, notching career averages of 5.5 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 1.5 blocks to accompany a slash line of .438/.258/.708.

Orlando’s roster count now sits at 14 players, including 13 possessing full guarantees on their pacts.
