Warriors waive Ben Gordon

Ben Gordon was the big name in the Warriors’ preseason competition for an off-the-bench shooter.

He’s also first cut.

CSN Bay Area:

The Golden State Warriors have waived guard Ben Gordon, the team announced Wednesday.

I guess that vegan diet didn’t pay off.

Gordon, 32, hasn’t been productive in a few years. Even his 3-point shot had been slipping. His defense and peripheral offensive skills were never that strong. It’s hard to make the case he still belongs in the NBA.

This leaves Jarell Eddie, Ian Clark and Chris Babb competing for a regular-season roster spot. All three are far less experienced than Gordon, but Golden State clearly sees them as better options.
