Hornets entertaning offers on Eric Gordon, thoughts?

I know Gordon has been injury prone the last couple years, however has great numbers for a shooting guard.

His career average is 18 ppg. Apparently NO thought he was worthy of a max deal, but it sounds like he doesn't want to be there.

Just gauging thoughts on him as a player?

Seeing how NO is going anywhere this year, I wonder if they'd consider dealing us Gordon for 3 future years of Rondo (imagine Rondo/Davis in the fast break.)

Yeah, they scare me too. However, I wonder if he was also "milking" the injuries to avoid putting on a Hornets jersey (lol.)

For Rondo, no. But for Bradley, Bass, and a pick I'd do it. If we are looking to next year and beyond, getting Gordon to play with Rondo, Sullinger and Green is a good start.

No thanks. I like players that can string 20 games together.

Carry on.

EGor is a binky of mine, but I think I'd prefer to enjoy his game from afar.  I just don't trust him to stay healthy.

He'd be a top 10-15 player in the league if he could string a few healthy seasons together, though.  Really talented.

This guy is a very talented player. He just doesn't want to stay on the Hornets. Can you blame him?

Don't look now, but they have some nice talent on that team.  Ryan Anderson is a good player.  Davis is a great prospect, Vasquez has had a breakout year, and Aminu has improved a lot.  Lopez is a solid roleplayer. 

Good young team who could get very dangerous in two or three years if Gordon sticks around and they add some more quality depth.

If we wanted to solidify our playoff push this year we could set up this trade:

BOS trades:

Rondo
Jason Terry
Brandon Bass

New Orleans Trades:

Eric Gordon
Austin Rivers
Ryan Andersen



Gordon clearly hates playing for the Hornets. I think NO is aware, and wants to move him to get SOMETHING legit, considering they let CP3 go to get him.

Rondo is hurt for this playoff push, so this trade allows us to add another superstar in Gordon for RIGHT now, as well as Ryan Andersen, who can spread the floor and do most everything Bass does for this team.

Doc is reunited with his son to coach him.......hard to tell if this is a huge sticking point for New Orleans or not, because so far, Austin hasn't been playing all that great.

I'm comfortable with a Bradley/Lee/Rivers PG rotation. Gordon will dominate most of the SG minutes, and between Lee/Gordon/Green/PP/Andersen/KG, we will have a wide range of shooters to spread the floor all game

Yup, I was thinking along the same lines

Only difference is I would deal Rondo, Lee and Bass for E Gordon and R Anderson.

We get two very good players who can help for now and the future and New Orleans get a superstar for the future in Rondo and two younger but decent pieces in Bass and Courtney Lee.

I think Terry might be a bit too old for NO's liking.

As for Austin, I say just keep Bradley. I think Doc and his son on the same team might be a little awkward

I think his most likely destination is either Phoenix in a three way using Gortat and Dudley or to Indiana for Granger.

True, true about Rivers. And I could see how Terry would actually be more valuable to the C's in this scenario because he runs a truer PG game compared to Lee, when Bradley is on the bench.

Bradley/Gordon/PP/Andersen/KG

rotation of Terry/Green/Barbosa/Wilcox

I just started to drool over that thought. That rotation is definitely missing a rebounding machine with size and defense, but totally a Miami killer.
