And let the games begin! On Wednesday, the Phoenix Suns signed disgruntled New Orleans Hornets shooting guard Eric Gordon to a 4 year $58 Million dollar contract extension.
This is where the drama comes into play, because Eric Gordon has made it known that he does not want to play with the Hornets, despite them getting the #1 draft pick, Anthony Davis, as well as making some decent personnel changes.
Last week, the Arizona Republic reported that Gordon had stated his intentions in staying with the Suns.
“After visiting the Suns, the impression the organization made on me was incredible,” Gordon said in a prepared statement. “Mr. Sarver, Lon Babby, Lance Blanks, the front office staff and Coach Gentry run a first-class organization, and I strongly feel they are the right franchise for me. Phoenix is just where my heart is now.”
It is obvious that Gordon DOES NOT want to play for the Hornets, but the team has every intention to match the Suns offer. They have 3 days to match the offer.
If they do match, it should be interested to see what direction they plan on going with Eric Gordon.
