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.
