The Magic have waived Arinze Onuaku, the team has announced over Twitter. The announcement came after Friday’s game against the Rockets, a significant contest in that it featured Onuaku’s brother Chinanu Onuaku.
In eight games for the Magic this season, the 29-year-old forward averaged just 3.5 points per game, he was signed to a one-year deal in September after impressing the team in Summer League
Onuaku’s release comes on the eve of January 7, the last day that teams can waive players with partially guaranteed contracts.
Previously Onuaku has seen limited action with Cavaliers, Timberwolves and Pelicans.
