MONDAY, 1:06pm: Orlando has officially waived Gordon, the team announced via press release.
SATURDAY, 9:25pm: Ben Gordon will be waived by the Magic, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. If he clears waivers, Gordon will become an unrestricted free agent. The 32-year-old guard appeared in 56 games with Orlando last season, all off the bench, and averaged 6.2 points per game.
Gordon signed with the Magic as a free agent last summer, agreeing to a two-year, $9MM deal, but the second year was only fully guaranteed if he was not waived before Wednesday. By parting ways with Gordon, Orlando will have an estimated $14.5MM in available salary cap space.
Gordon has averaged nearly 15 points per game in his 11-year NBA career. Before coming to Orlando, he played for the Bulls, Pistons and Bobcats.
