Jared Cunningham won't receive a second 10-day contract from the Bucks, according to freelance reporter Andrew Gruman.
Cunningham made four appearances with the Bucks and mostly failed to distinguish himself, as he shot 28.6 percent from the field while averaging four points and 2.3 rebounds over 13.8 minutes. Most of Cunningham's sparse minutes should go to Rashad Vaughn, who was recalled from the D-League's Canton Charge prior to Saturday's game against the Hornets. Cunningham figures to return to the D-League now that he's a free agent.
The Bucks were able to bring Cunningham in using the NBA's hardship exception, which temporarily grants them an extra roster spot to compensate for injuries. Cunningham, who was traded from the Cavaliers to the Magic at the deadline, was waived by the Magic on Feb. 22 and has been with the Idaho Stampede of the D-League for the past few weeks. The 24-year-old posted averages of 17.3 points, 5.7 assists, and 3.3 rebounds in three games for the Stampede and will now join his sixth NBA team since being selected with the 24th overall pick in the 2012 draft. Expect him to see only light minutes at the end of the Bucks bench.
Jared Cunningham was waived by the Magic on Monday.
The Magic never really intended to hold on to Cunningham after acquiring him from the Cavaliers in a three-team deal Thursday, as the team was only motivated to get involved with the trade in order to pick up a second-round pick. Cunningham never saw the court during his brief stay with the Magic, and will now look to pursue an opportunity with another squad.
Jared Cunningham is inactive for Friday's matchup with the Mavericks.
Cunningham was traded to the Orlando Magic on Thursday but will have to wait to take the court with his new team. There has been speculation that the Magic will release Cunningham in order to free up more cap space. If he does stick around, look for his debut to come on Sunday when the Magic face the Pacers.
Cunningham is simply a throw-in in the deal, and he's expected to be waived by the Magic, according to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports. The Magic appear to have entered cap-clearing mode, with the goal of freeing up upwards of $40 million in space this summer. In moving Frye and Tobias Harris this week, the team is now in position -- assuming it renounces several cap holds -- to be a major player in free agency come July. As for Cunningham, he'll look to catch on with another team, but may ultimately land in the D-League if there's little interest in him.
