Gordon/Gordon trade idea

28 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

New Orleans is desperate to get rid of Eric Gordon.. he doesn't want to be there anymore either..

Charlotte is looking to get younger and aquire assets.. Eric Gordon would be a big gamble because of his injury- but he was still dropping 17ppg last year and only 2 years removed from being a 22ppg player with the Clippers

 

so the idea is swap the #4 and #6 picks and the pair of Gordons

 

Bobcats get: #6 pick & Eric Gordon = 4 years @ $13.6

Pelicans get: #4 pick & Ben Gordon = 1 year @ $12.4

 

what say you???

I mean that would definitely be a good pickup but his injury history scares me. So much so that I don't know if it is worth committing 4 years at that salary to. Great player though.

I think I'd rather re-sign Henderson.  Don't get me wrong, I'm all for trading Ben Gordon for something.

I'd be for it if possible, but I doubt they go for that deal no matter how fed up they are with him.

I know Eric Gordon's body of work at the Clippers speaks for him being a huge asset for any team. But his injury concern, lack of support for his current team, and especially that huge remaining contract are a lot of red flags for me. I am not sure he is worth moving back two spaces in this draft despite how weak it is in talent. Now just a straight up trade player for player with no picks involved I would do.

I don't think that the Pelicans would do that... they aren't as desperate as you would think.  I think Gordon is more unhappy than New Orleans is to get rid of him.  Only being 2 seasons away from acquiring him in the Chris Paul trade, i think in the grand scheme of things they wouldn't have traded Chris Paul just to move up in the draft 2 spots and acquire an expiring contract in Gordon. 

 

I think your scenario as closer to possible if we were to throw in a young productive player like Jeff Taylor or Byron Mullens along with Ben Gordon.

1yr 12 mil is more valuable..we should gain a 2nd rounder in this..not get a lower pick.

Ben gordon off the books will free up huge money and Eric Gordon at 22pts a game is still not worth crippling the cap 3 more seasons for. Id rather draft Oladipo or Mclemore if thats the case.

I'd jump off a bridge if that happened!!!!!!

 

Only thing is I dont think the Pelicans would do it. Swapping picks and swapping players seemed to little. NO could probably get something worth more than that by trading Eric Gordon alone. Maybe we could sign and trade Gerald Henderson with the deal.

 

Charlotte receives:

No.6 Pick
Eric Gordon

 

New Orleans receives:

No.4 Pick
Ben Gordon
Gerald Henderson

 

Maybe??

 

 

2014-2015 Charlotte Hornets
PG: Kemba Walker
SG: Eric Gordon / Taylor
SF: Jabari Parker / Kidd-Gilchrist

PF: Biz / FA

C  : Alex Len

Ben Gordan's contract is too valuable to do this trade.

Cho could get a first rounder for Gordon because someone would love to have $12 million coming off of the books.

I would do it... here is my reason why

 

At 6 We could still get Len, a player many are excited and wanting anyway

 

Here is the main reason... We have never had a top scorer. Eric Gordon is a great scorer in many ways in the league. He has proven himself in the league as a solid 20 pt scorer from all over the court. He is a career 36% shooter from 3pt range. He has great handles and can create his own shot. I think if healthy he could really help this team take a step up and we only drop 2 spots in draft.

 

If there was any chance of this trade I would have multiple team doctors work Gordon out and clear him. If he passes health test I wouldn't hesitate to make this trade.

Horrible injury history and his shooting dropped off big time last season. Plus his contract is just stupid. Do not want, I'd much rather wait for BG to expire and move on with the cap room

A lot of people are saying that Phoenix is very interested in Len, so there is no guarantee that he is there at six.

I would rather keep our pick, keep Gordon and use some of our cap room to sign J.R. Smith (if we choose to move on from Henderson) rather than trade for Eric Gordon.

Like others have said, Eric is a great player; but if he can't stay healthy then what's the point.

On top of that J.R. Smith is a better all-around player.

I just don't think JR would want to come here. He seemed like someone who wants to play with star player like Melo. It would be a great addition if happened.

I'm under the same impression with Gordon, if he wants out of New Orleans, why would he want to come to Charlotte?

You know what I mean.

Also it's not that I don't like Eric, it's solely base on his injury history.

The thing is Gordon will be tied up for the next 3 years. He really cant do anything, unless pouch. I'm not sure he'd do that to MJ.

 

Smith scenario is different that he's a free agent. He get to choose where to play. I'm not sure if Charlotte is on his top 15 teams.

 

Anyway, I dont see this trade happening.

I'd be willing to do a straight trade Gordon for Gordon. That's about it though.

So do you guys want a top three pick and 20+ million in cap space next season? I do.

I hate that it seems like the one more season to sit back and grow this team may becut short(according to rumors).

The Hornets will make a hugh mistake if they try to blow their wad overpaying for an aged veteran this season.

Only guy I see to getin free agency is a young JJ Hickson is a tough power rebounder inside scorer. I'd hope he would demand less than max money..But reluctantly pass on the Al Jefferson, other Utah guy..

Its like you just paid off a horrible credit card and want to go get a cash advance immediately. You just defeated the whole purpose to suck for two seasons.. Next years draft is the best one since.. Well in a while.

Just stand pat at 4 or trade down or try to get another pick next season...target a young FA shooter like F Chandler Parsons in free agency 2013.

Get your young franchise stud in the draft. Then its packed houses and everyone cheering superHugo on his vault dunk!!

J.R. Smith is a terrible idea you wonder which J.R. is going to show up on a nightly basis

 

Henderson over him all day

Yeah.... you're not intelligent...

 

You clearly watched only a few games of the second round of the playoff's and listen to ESPN way to much.

 

J.R. Smith was 4th in shooting guard scoring behind only Kobe Bryant, James Harden, and Dwayne Wade... He averaged 18.1 points per game this year including a game where he he dropped 37 on the Bobcats.

 

I'm guessing you're a new fan who just decided to latch on because we got the Hornets name back and never saw this...

I want a top 3 pick and 20+ million in cap space. Though, we have to spend money this year. I'm surprised that this is the first time I've seen Hickson name brought up this year. Everyone wanted Hickson last year, and he suddenly just disappeared in conversation this offseason. Hickson is a young PF who we can bring in and still be bad enough to be a Top3 team in next year's draft. Also, he shouldnt demand a max contract. Hickson would compliment well with Alex Len. That would be a fun front court to watch for the future. Hickson and probably Paul Millsap are the only two guys I would want to target in Free Agency. I highly prefer Hickson bc he's younger and an extremely tough rebounder.

No to Eric Gordon. The dude is made of glass. Go over to Pelicans Report and ask them what they think of him. As for J.R. Smith the dude is a headcase. No doubt he can shoot but his Basketball IQ is very low. I don't really want him either.

First of all fug ESPN.

 

Second of all I like the Bobcats the only NBA jersey I have ever owned is an Emeka Okafor jersey.

 

Because of the name change I am certainly going to be more in tune with the Hornets than I ever was with the Bobcats however. In fact, more in tune with the NBA for that matter. I love that Charlotte has its Hornets back.

 

The stats you listed by J.R. are impressive, I know he won sixth man award and you don't get that by being a bum. Maybe I just think if the Hornets got him they would probably greatly overpay for some probable bouts of inconsistency.

 

I mean give me Oladipo at the 2 why J.R. Smith?

JR Smith is good but a young Hornet team is not a good fit. I am not saying he would not immediately be the teams best player but he is just not a guy you want as a building block of a team.

The closest thing to a building block the team has is Kemba who I think would be best as a 6th man instant offense guy.

I have nothing wrong with Smith, there isn't as many distractions in Charlotte as there is in New York; so I think he would fit in alright. On top of that he would get to be the go-to-go guy for the first time in his career.
