Steve: Where is Eric Gordon's heart now?

Restricted free agent Eric Gordon has agreed to a max offer sheet by the Phoenix Suns. It is worth $58 million through four years. However, some internet reports mention that the Hornets have every intention of matching that offer.
 
Gordon is one of the best shooting guards in the league when he’s not hurt. He only played in nine games for the Hornets last year. Before that, he was great for the L.A. Clippers and helped Team U.S.A. win a gold medal in the 2010 FIBA World Championships.
 
According to a prepared statement, Gordon says; “After visiting the Suns, the impression the organization made on me was incredible.  (Suns Managing Partner) Mr. (Robert) Sarver, (President of Basketball Operations) Lon Babby, (General Manager) Lance Blanks, the front-office staff and Coach (Alvin) 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."
 
Where his heart is now?  After one meeting!?
 
Sorry Eric, truth be told, you really don't have much of a choice. As a restricted free agent, the Hornets matching the Suns offer means Gordon would stay in New Orleans.
 
But does the franchise want the supposed leader of their team playing here if his heart is somewhere else? We'll have to see where this one will turn.

Sign Eric Gordon to a contract and trade him to the Houston Rockets for 2 of their recent draftees and at least 1 future first round draft choice. We don't need him, but we do need to get something for him.

heart surgery
i agree, sign him to a contract and then trade him for some future picks. the hornets should get smomthing for him after putting up with his injuries and non defense playing. what good is his offense if the one he is guarding scores more than he does. i would say it evens out.

Put your money or your heart where your mouth is...
Get draft picks for him and then show him the door. He can then become some other team's sideliner.
