NBA Rumors: Nets Expressing Interest In Eric Gordon As Deron Williams Backup Plan

After an earlier report indicated New Orleans Hornets restricted free agent shooting guard Eric Gordon would visit with the Houston Rockets, Indiana Pacers (his hometown team) and Phoenix Suns in search of a contract in the neighborhood of four years and $58 million, it appears another team is in the mix to try to pry Gordon away from the Hornets.

Other reports have tied the Nets to seeking a potential trade for Hawks guard Joe Johnson while also expressing interest in the Rockets' Luis Scola and unrestricted free agent O.J. Mayo. They've already re-signed small forward Gerald Wallace for four years, $40 million in hopes of enticing Williams to stay. Williams may in fact be leaning toward playing in Brooklyn, if a New York Daily News report is to be believed. Still, Nets GM Billy King is going all in on being the most active team in the league this summer, it appears.
