Jared Zwerling: Jameer Nelson has about 15 teams interested. Healthy, wants to win/play. Also a key player mentor. Guards market may dictate $5-7 mil range. Wouldn't be surprised if SAS (Mills' injury), OKC (Fisher retired) & MIA (PG shooter & Bron needs ball-handling help) all inquire on Nelson. Twitter @JaredZwerling

Nelson knew the move was in the offing, and he wanted the chance to go to a contender, but being off the Magic’s roster will take some getting used to. “I think it’s a little weird,” Nelson told the Orlando Sentinel in a phone interview. “[It’s weird after] being in one place for 10 years and being given all the opportunities I’ve had there in Orlando and the coaches who molded the me into the player and the person I am, the GMs and my teammates and just everybody, the fans and everybody in the organization — they played a part in my growth as a person and as a player.” Orlando Sentinel

The Orlando Magic have waived point guard Jameer Nelson, the team announced on Monday. He was set to make $8 million in the final season of his contract, but only $2 million of it was guaranteed. Orlando decided that his steady hand and leadership were not worth the $6 million, and now he will be free to join a playoff team. CBSSports.com

The buzz around the soon-to-be-resurrected Hornets is that a dependable small forward will surely be their top target in free agency ... and MJ will again have money to spend, if he can find a willing taker. Or Charlotte could certainly opt for trades to fill its nagging holes at both small forward and backup point guard if it fears the usual chilly summer chasing players on the open market. The rumbles have already begun that two players Clifford is said to regard with real fondness after working with them in Orlando as an assistant -- swingman Arron Afflalo and backup point guard Jameer Nelson -- will be among the Bobcats' trade targets.

"I'm very cognizant it could be my last home game," Nelson said. "It's not up to me. It's up to the team. It's the team's option. I would like to still be here and finish my career here. I have a lot more years left in me. Good years. I'm not sure what they have in store for me, but I'm just going to play it out and see what happens. Like I said, it's just one of those things. I don't have control over it. I don't know what their thoughts are right now. Orlando Sentinel

Jameer Nelson sat out his fourth consecutive game when the Orlando Magic hosted the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday night, but Nelson received some positive news on his sore left knee earlier in the day. Nelson underwent an MRI exam, and the exam revealed no problems. "It's gotten better," Nelson said before tipoff. "The swelling is going down. I got an MRI today to make sure everything was fine, because the swelling wasn't going down. So everything looks positive and I'm shooting to play on Friday." Orlando Sentinel
