Ben Gordon SG ORL 2 Months

Ben Gordon officially signed a two-year, $9 million deal with the Magic on Friday.

The second year is a team option, which mitigates the risk for Orlando, but they're still taking a gamble that the 31-year-old guard will bounce back after a career-worst season in Charlotte. The Magic are deep at SG with Victor Oladipo, Evan Fournier, Doron Lamb and Willie Green all in the mix, which gives Gordon even less upside for fantasy purposes.

The Magic have agreed to sign Ben Gordon on a two-year, $9 million contract, according to Yahoo!'s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Gordon just hit the lottery. The 31-year-old shot 34.3 percent with the Bobcats last year, including 27.6 percent from downtown, and he wound up appearing in just 19 games all season. Why the Magic thought that was worth $4.5 million annually is anyone's guess. The second year isn't guaranteed according to TNT's David Aldridge, but it's still an atrocious amount of money for a player who peaked in 2008-09. With Victor Oladipo locked into the SG job in Orlando, there's no reason to touch Gordon for fantasy purposes.

The Thunder are interested in signing Ben Gordon once he reaches a buyout agreement.

The possible deal with the Thunder is expected to allow Gordon to be a free agent this summer. The Bulls, Clippers and Rockets are also interested in acquiring Gordon. OKC has been playing Derek Fisher 16.3 minutes per game, so it's going to be tough for BG to get minutes with them.

The Bulls, Clippers and Rockets reportedly have interest in signing Ben Gordon if he's bought out by the Bobcats.

Gordon is resisting two-year contracts because he wants to hit free agency in July, but it sounds like he'll eventually sign with a contender for the rest of the 2013-14 season. The Bulls may drop out of the race if they sign Jimmer Fredette first, and Gordon's fantasy appeal is limited to deep leagues where a handful of 3-pointers are enough for value.

The Bobcats are engaged in contract buyout discussions with Ben Gordon.

He's only played in one game since Jan. 11 and the writing has been on the wall for this one after the Bobcats couldn't trade him away for peanuts. Gordon is a career 40.2 percent shooter from deep, but his game has fallen off in the past two seasons. He could find another team, but there's no reason to add him in fantasy leagues until he lands in the perfect spot.

Ben Gordon did not make the trip to Denver and will not play against the Nuggets on Wednesday.

He's played just 10 minutes all year and there's no reason to think he's going to get minutes any time soon. Gordon has lost a step and is shooting just 35.4 percent on the season. There's nothing to see here.

Ben Gordon sat out Monday's practice due to an illness.

Gordon's status for Wednesday's road game in Denver is uncertain, but it's also irrelevant for fantasy purposes since he's averaging a mere 5.4 points on 35.7 percent shooting this season. Coach Steve Clifford said the illness is going around the team and Bobcats' owners should stay alert for any more updates.

Ben Gordon (knee) went through an individual workout on Tuesday.

He recently had a procedure to alleviate soreness in his knee, which is a red flag, but he's still expected to be in uniform for Charlotte's opener. He drained 1.5 threes off the bench last season and should surface with specialist appeal in deep leagues.
