The real answer is that the sucks. Can't play D and is a streaky jump shooter. That may have fit with Dunlap's offense, but no place for that crap In Clifford's offense


I still feel like he could be getting around 5 minutes a game. If he is that worthless to us we should trade him for whatever we can get.

This, plus he has zero handle, nothing.  Watch him when he needs to dribble the ball around any type of traffic or defensive pressure.  Guaranteed turnover.

 

He's only good for shooting when he doesn't have to create his own shot, everywhere else he's a liability.  It will be nice when that ridiculous contract is gone.

U say that as we won't get anything valuable in return. Do U realize how valuable a 13 million expiring contract is. That is gonna bring some serious talent here by trading him which they might do. They could possibly let him expire and and use the 13 mill. But they probably package him and something else to get a star. U prolly realize that tho lol. Just good for discussion and excites me when looking whatver could get for him.

Expiring contracts only have value when you are taking back a worse contract for multiple years. Nobody is going to trade anything of value for Gordon. Maybe a second rounder and a crappy player but that's about it.

Ha. U really don't think some teams would be plenty happy to get relief in the amount of 13 million. The cba and the penalties now are way more than before. Teams that are over the cap by 30 million and have to pay an additional tax of 60-100 million just for being over.

So yeah plenty of people would kill to have a 13 million expiring.

I understand that. But it doesn't help them if they don't give up a longer contract. Having a 13 million dollar contract disappear at the end of the season doesn't help unless you get rid of long-term money.

Yeah a perfect situation would be like an Eric Gordon (perfect as in perfect example, because I wouldn't want him here). Always injured, but has a long term deal that maybe the Pelicans (lol) would be happy to get rid of.
