The Orlando Magic have applied to have the remaining salary of Timofey Mozgov removed from their salary cap under career-ending injury and illness provisions.

Mozgov signed a four-year, $64 million contract with the Los Angeles Lakers in 2016.

The Magic waived and stretched Mozgov in July after acquiring him from the Charlotte Hornets.

Orlando is $1.9 million below the hard cap and are therefore carrying only 13 players.
