The Orlando Magic waived reserve big man Solomon Jones after the team's 110-94 loss to the Miami Heat on Saturday night. Waiving Jones, coupled with the decision to waive Hedo Turkoglu on Friday, leaves the Magic's roster at 13 players and gives the Magic some additional roster flexibility. (An NBA team may carry a maximum of 15 players on its roster.) Jones' salary for the season was $1,186,459, but it was fully unguaranteed. If the Magic had kept him beyond the close of business on Jan. 7, his entire salary would've become guaranteed. Orlando Sentinel

Mike Woodson discussed the signing of big man Solomon Jones and how much he might play for the Knicks as the regular season winds down. “He was a guy that I had in Atlanta that we drafted when I was there,” Woodson said. “He kind of fits what I like in terms of shot blocking and rebounding the ball and playing defense. That’s why he’s here.” Solomon was brought in because the Knicks are so shorthanded up front. So his playing time is up in the air, based on the game, the situation and who’s available. “It all depends,” Woodson said. “I don’t know what kind of shape he’s in. He played some in China last month. We’ll gauge it as we go along.” He had no points and one rebound in 12 minutes in his debut. Sulia
