Drew Gordon, the older brother of fourth overall pick in the 2014 Draft Aaron Gordon, was waived by the Sixers today. Like Ronald Roberts, he Woj-bombed himself.
Just got cut by the sixers... Sad news but keeps the chip on my shoulder .. Still have something to prove— drew gordon (@xtraGORDONary32) October 25, 2014
Gordon performed surprisingly well in preseason action, averaging roughly eight points and four rebounds in 16 minutes of preseason action per game.
Despite not being overly impressive in Las Vegas, the Sixers invited him to camp. Gordon was always considered a long shot, but he outplayed both opponents and teammates in preseason games, making a case to make the squad. Also, he is still not NBA veteran Drew Gooden, which actually worked in his favor.
After the Roberts and Gordon cuts, the roster stands at 18. At least three more cuts must be made by Monday.
