Magic Waive Christian Eyenga, Armon Johnson

Douglas Jones-US PRESSWIRE

The Orlando Magic have cut their roster to 18 players after waiving Christian Eyenga and Armon Johnson from the team on Monday.

The Orlando Magic entered Tuesday with 20 players on their roster. They've now cut that number to 18 after waiving two players, including a piece of the Dwight Howard trade. Magic officials announced they have waived guard/forward Christian Eyenga and guard Armon Johnson.

Eyenga did not appear in any preseason games while Johnson saw action in five games, averaging 3.2 points, 1.6 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game. Eyenga was acquired from the Los Angeles Lakers in the Dwight Howard trade, but will not make the final Magic roster. Johnson, a former Dayton flyer, was signed as a free agent and played sparingly in the Magic preseason before being waived.

Eyenga's contract was guaranteed this season, so the Magic will owe Eyenga $1.2 million unless he is picked up by another team on waivers.

The Magic have until Monday at 5:00 p.m. EST to trim their roster down to 18 players.
