Indianapolis — The Orlando Magic waived Adreian Payne, the latest fallout from in what has become a crisis at Michigan State.

Magic coach Frank Vogel confirmed the move Saturday, declining further comment other than to wish Payne well.

Payne was part of an ESPN Outside the Lines' report, detailing sexual assault allegations against former Spartans. The 6-foot-10 forward was drafted No. 15 overall in 2014 by Atlanta out of Michigan State and was traded during his rookie season to Minnesota.

The Magic signed him to a two-way contract last August. He played just five games for Orlando in the NBA and spent much of the season with its G League team.

Payne has averaged 4 points and 2.9 rebounds over 107 NBA games.

The ESPN story referenced an August 2010 incident where a student accused then-MSU basketball recruits Keith Appling and Payne of sexually assaulting her in a campus dorm room. Charges were never filed and a Title IX investigation was eventually conducted that did not find Payne and Appling violated any policy.

The alleged victim responded by filing a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights.
