Warriors sign G Ben Gordon.

Maybe it is possible to have too much shooting. The loss of Justin Holiday could help Gordon get minutes, but he's still unlikely to be in the rotation while the Warriors are at full strength.

Ben Gordon is close to securing a training camp deal with the Warriors, according to Marc Stein on ESPN.

While Gordon would provide the Warriors with a scoring option off the bench, he hasn't averaged more than 6.5 points per game over the last two seasons. Even if Gordon hooks on with the Warriors, fantasy owners can feel free to ignore the 33-year-old.

The market for Ben Gordon has been slow to develop, according to Michael Scott of SheridanHoops.

Gordon was paid $4.5 million by the Magic last season, but Scotto reports the veteran hasn't received any offers close to his 2014-15 salary. There's a chance a team could bring in Gordon as a bench option, but he can be ignored by fantasy owners no matter where he lands.

Magic waive G Ben Gordon.

There is no surprise here with a report over the weekend saying Gordon wasn't going to be back. He's 32 years old and hasn't scored more than 6.5 points per game in either of his last two seasons. He won't be pursued much this offseason.

The Magic will not pick up their team option for Ben Gordon.

It's a no-brainier for the Magic after Gordon was essentially out of the rotation for the past season. The Magic now have $14.5 million in cap space for the upcoming free agency period. Gordon will likely sign on a minimum deal next year.

Ben Gordon is unlikely to return to the Orlando Magic next season.

Gordon's contract is not guaranteed for 2015-16, so it's unlikely the team will bring the 32-year-old back for a third season. This news comes as no surprise as Gordon sat the team's last 10 games and only played 11 of their final 32. Gordon may have to weigh retirement as he's unlikely to get many offers as a free agent and he can be forgotten about by fantasy owners.

Ben Gordon and Devyn Marble will be inactive for Friday's game vs. the Raptors.

Neither of these guys are in the rotation, so there aren’t any fantasy implications here. Leave them on the wire.

Ben Gordon unexpectedly scored 13 points in 19 minutes on Tuesday, taking advantage of the absence of Willie Green (back) and Evan Fournier (hip).

He shot 5-of-9 from the field with one 3-pointer, one rebound and one assist. Eleven of his points came in the first half and this was as fluky as it gets for Gordon -- he was a DNP-CD in Orlando's previous three games and has scored double-digit points just four times since Jan. 1.

Ben Gordon was tossed from Saturday's game against the Mavericks for cursing at the ref, finishing with six points, two boards, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers in 14 minutes.

He stepped back into the rotation due to Victor Oladipo's (Achilles) absence, but likely squandered any hope of increasing his role with these antics. Leave Gordon on the wire.

Ben Gordon will be activated for Thursday's game against the Bucks, pushing Devyn Marble to the inactive list.

Being on the active roster doesn't guarantee you playing time. Gordon is averaging 6.7 points and not much else over 15 minutes of action this season, and he remains a negligible fantasy option in most leagues.

Magic guard Ben Gordon said he thinks his game is back.

"My game is back," Gordon said. "My game is sharp. I'm being efficient and doing what I wanted to accomplish." The 31-year-old is averaging 7.5 points in a reserve role for the Magic and has scored double-digits in 13 of 34 games this year. While he can provide the occasional offensive outburst, he's only averaging 15.5 minutes per game and can be left on the waiver wire in most fantasy leagues.

Ben Gordon scored 14 points on 5-of-9 shooting with four rebounds, one steal and one 3-pointer in 19 minutes off the bench on Friday.

Gordon got some extra run and touches with the second unit as they brought the Magic back from a huge deficit to make it a game late. These outbursts are few and far between so Gordon can be ignored in most formats.
Fri, Jan 2, 2015 10:03:00 PM

Ben Gordon came off the Magic bench to hit 5-of-11 shots and zero 3-pointers for 15 points, two turnovers and not much else on Wednesday.

He's had a couple surprising games thus far, but we trust Evan Fournier more, and both players will take a severe hit once Victor Oladipo is back from his injury. Starting Gordon in a fantasy league is like playing with fire.

Ben Gordon scored 22 points during a 105-98 loss to the Wizards on Thursday, adding four assists, two 3-pointers and one turnover in 26 minutes.

He's clearly beaten Moe Harkless for the backup wing minutes and may be able to muster up some fantasy value. Gordon is more of a deep-league option, though.
