OAKLAND – Veteran guard Ben Gordon, signed to a non-guaranteed contract one day before training camp, was waived on Wednesday by the Warriors, the team announced.

Though Gordon had the lengthiest resume of any of the camp invitees, he faced long odds to make the roster at shooting guard. He was behind starter Klay Thompson, backup Leandro Barbosa and also swingman Brandon Rush and Chris Babb.

In addition, Gordon was competing with fellow invitees Ian Clark and Jarell Eddie, both of whom are younger and capable of playing multiple positions.

Gordon, 32, appeared in two preseason games. His release trims the roster to 18.
