Ben Gordon will make his D-League debut with the Texas Legends on Friday.

He last played in the NBA during the 2014-15 season and will turn 34 on Apr. 4. Gordon was a bucket getter in his prime with five 40-point games from 2006 to 2012.

Ben Gordon said he's open to playing in the EuroLeague.

Gordon would prefer to return to the NBA, but there haven't been any teams who have shown any interest in the 33-year-old yet. We'll keep an eye on Gordon's movement, but he is far off the fantasy radar (probably for good).

Ben Gordon is reportedly interested in playing overseas.

If Gordon wants to keep playing professional basketball, heading overseas may be his only option at this point.

Ben Gordon is eyeing an NBA comeback.

The Warriors waived him in training camp on Oct. 14 of last year. Gordon is 33 years old and will be playing for Great Britain in the Eurobasket tournament next month. The UCONN product only played 14.1 minutes per game in the 2014-15 season.

Warriors waive G Ben Gordon.

He was signed on Sept. 25 and never really had a chance to make the team because of how deep the Warriors are. Gordon might get picked up by a team not competing for a title.

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.
