Ben Gordon was waived by the Charlotte Bobcats on Sunday.

“With the recent acquisition of additional backcourt depth to our roster, we believe this is in the best interests of both parties,” Rod Higgins said in a statement. “We want to thank Ben for his contributions over the past two seasons and wish him the best as he moves on in his career.”

The Bobcats' roster now stands at 14 players.

Gordon and the Bobcats had discussed a possible buyout before his release.

Gordon won't be eligible for the postseason with another club.
