Eric Gordon, a restricted free agent, is seeking a four-year deal worth $58 million, according to ESPN's Chris Broussard. To get that deal, the shooting guard will meet with the Indiana Pacers, Houston Rockets and Phoenix Suns over the next three days, and the Portland Trail Blazers and possibly the Dallas Mavericks and Charlotte Bobcats after that, says Broussard.
The New Orleans Hornets can match any offer sheet signed by Gordon. They could also save folks some frequent flier miles by offering that deal to Gordon themselves. The two-guard played just nine games last season, but was the centerpiece of the club's Chris Paul trade in December. The Hornets drafted Anthony Davis and Austin Rivers on Thursday to help rebuild the club.
We ranked Gordon as the No. 3 free agent on Saturday, behind Deron Williams and Roy Hibbert, and projected a max or near-max deal.
