After a bout of disruptive behavior from Ben Gordon targeted at Charlotte Bobcats coach Mike Dunlap, the franchise's desire to trade the guard has deepened, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.Ben Gordon is averaging 12.6 points this season. (AP)As Dunlap led the Bobcats in a morning shootaround on Monday before a victory over the Celtics, Gordon refused Dunlap's request to stop bouncing a ball as the coach spoke, sources said. Before long, Gordon began baiting Dunlap, telling him that he needed to "humble himself," sources said.
Gordan refused to give the ball to Dunlap, and eventually tossed it toward a ball rack, sources said.
Bobcats general manager Rod Higgins was in the practice session and ultimately intervened, sources said.
"Beyond disrespectful," was how one league source described the scene.

I never really pictured Gordon as that kind of player.

maybe they will give Dunlap away too





not that I agree with what Gordon did, but Dunlap has to go.. he's losing the team.. to make a mild-mannered Gordon act like this.. trade Gordon, fire Dunlap, promote Stephen Silas, call it a season

The fact that Higgins came to Dunlap's defense makes one believe this problem is with Gordon and not Dunlap. Accountability is important...changing the culture is important. Obviously Gordon needs to adjust himself or be traded. simple as that. Players have to buy in and respect the coach's decision making. no room for this on a young squad.

He has always been that type of player/guy. It was a great to trade for the Bobcats, but I was not thrilled at all about having him on the team. I hope he gets traded and fast.

Gordon has never been mild-mannered. I don't know where you got that. He has always started stuff on the court and locker room. Dunlap is a good coach and teacher. Do you think Phil Riley would win with the team the Bobcats have. The answer is no. Same as any other coach.

Yeah i loved the trade with Detroit not for Gordon even though I think he is more valuable than Maggette but since we got that draft pick. Shop around and see if we can move Gordon for another big or a draft pick

Or an expiring contract. He has trade value and he is expendable.

Not sure who has an expiring they would swap for Gordon... Maybe look to Memphis since they have almost 10 mill in trade exemptions, and are looking to add pieces but I dont know if Gordon is something they would be looking for
