Maxiell will serve as a veteran presence in the locker room, but with career averages of 5.9 points and 4.3 rebounds, he's not making a blip on the fantasy radar. Oct 24 - 1:42 PM

The Hornets officially signed Jason Maxiell to a non-guaranteed deal on Sunday.

Maxiell will try to earn the 15th and final roster spot with the Hornets, but with career averages of 5.9 points, and 4.3 rebounds, he's not someone to target in standard leagues.

The Hornets are expected to sign veteran big-man Jason Maxiell on Friday.

Maxiell was waived by the Magic before his $2.5 million salary became guaranteed. The contract he is expected to sign in Charlotte is non-guaranteed, so the 15th and final roster spot for the Hornets is still yet to be determined. With career averages of 5.9 points and 4.3 rebounds, Maxiell should not be on fantasy radars.
Sep 25 - 2:53 PM

The Magic have waived veteran forward Jason Maxiell.

His contract, worth $2.5 million, was set to become guaranteed on July 10, so this was an expected move. Maxiell has career averages of 5.9 points, and 4.3 rebounds in 18.9 minutes per game; he is not a fantasy option in any format.

The Magic are expected to waive veteran forward Jason Maxiell if he isn't traded in the next couple of days, according to a source of Yahoo! Sports.

At this point in Maxiell's career, he doesn't offer much more than a veteran presence. Maxiell played 34 games for the Magic last season, averaging 3.2 points, 2.5 rebounds, and not much else. His contract of $2.5 million for the 2014-15 season becomes fully guaranteed if he is not waived on, or before, the July 10 deadline. Wherever Maxiell lands, he will not be considered a fantasy option in any format.
Jun 30 - 2:33 PM

Jason Maxiell (personal) is not with the team and will not play on Sunday.

He has been out of the lineup since Jan. 28 and has only played in two games since Jan. 15. The Magic won't be missing Maxiell at all with Nikola Vucevic back and healthy.
Feb 9 - 6:31 PM

Jason Maxiell started at center in place of Nikola Vucevic (sprained ankle) and had six points, six rebounds, two steals and three blocks in 43 minutes.

You would have thought he could have done a little more with all those minutes, but the steals and blocks were nice. Maxiell hasn't been doing much at all this season and should return to obscurity once Vucevic is back, which should be soon.
Jan 2 - 10:01 PM

Jason Maxiell played 19 minutes against the Warriors on Tuesday with eight points, three boards, one steal and three fouls.

He could be in line for some more minutes with Nikola Vucevic injuring his left ankle for the second time this month. Maxiell started the second half and could wind up as the starter should Vucevic miss time, or the Magic could go back to a smaller lineup. Still, he's not worth owning in almost any league due to a low upside.

Jason Maxiell was a DNP-CD on Sunday for the first time in December.

Orlando's frontcourt rotation is too crowded for Maxiell to carve out a role. Even if injuries strike, Max's averages in 11 starts this season should ward off fantasy owners -- 6.2 points, 3.4 rebounds and 0.6 blocks.
Mon, Dec 16, 2013 09:49:00 AM

Jason Maxiell didn't score in 26 minutes on Tuesday night at Indiana, missing all five of his field goal attempts with five boards, one steal and two blocks.

He and the rest of the team were blocked 18 times tonight and couldn't get many good looks in the paint. Maxiell got the start at power forward tonight, but he's not worth adding in almost any league.
Tue, Oct 29, 2013 10:37:00 PM

Jason Maxiell will start at PF for the Magic on Tuesday, with Tobias Harris (ankle) and Glen Davis (foot) both unavailable.

Harris is day-to-day so Maxiell's time as a starter will be short-lived. Anyone trying to gauge his upside should consider his muted averages in 71 starts with Detroit last year -- 7.0 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.3 blocks in 25 minutes per game.
Tue, Oct 29, 2013 06:24:00 PM

Jason Maxiell had 16 points, six rebounds, a steal and a block on 6-of-13 shooting in a start for the Magic in Tuesday's preseason loss to the Spurs.

With projected starters Tobias Harris and Nikola Vucevic both sitting this one out, Maxiell got a chance to show his stuff. He might get some minutes in the rotation until Glen Davis returns, but for now, it's hard to see this not being one of his best lines of the entire season.
Tue, Oct 22, 2013 10:55:00 PM

Jason Maxiell will rest on Monday night.

He sounds like he's fine and should be ready to go for the season. The Magic have a lot of youth, so Maxiell is one of the oldest players in their frontcourt. He'll serve as emergency depth.
Mon, Oct 14, 2013 07:16:00 PM

Jason Maxiell and the Magic have agreed on a two-year, $5 million contract.

The second year is a team option. Orlando views Maxiell as a backup who can play both PF and C, and they surely hope that his blue-collar work ethic rubs off on their young guys. He averaged 6.9 points and a career-high 5.7 rebounds with Detroit last year, before his season ended due to eye surgery.

Jason Maxiell is "hanging in there" after having surgery to repair a detached retina.

Maxiell will not play again this season and has "likely" played his final game with the Pistons. He'll be an unrestricted free agent in the offseason and Detroit is set to enter next season with a front line of Greg Monroe and Andre Drummond.
