Demps Expects Big Things from Gordon

That’s all Eric Gordon has to do in order to cleanse New Orleans’ pallet, after he shoveled ash into the mouths of Hornets fans around two weeks ago.
Play hard, produce, stay healthy, fulfill community obligations and say the right things most of the time, and forgiveness will be granted sooner rather than later for the Hornets shooting guard.
And, yes, it can be that easy for Gordon, who said his heart was in Phoenix and he wouldn’t be happy playing in New Orleans after Phoenix presented him with a four-year, $58 million contract offer. Now he hopes there are no hard feelings after New Orleans did exactly what it vowed to do all along — matched the offer Gordon received as a restricted free agent, after calling him the best player on the team and stressing he is the foundation of the team.
“I think, from an organizational standpoint, we’re expecting big things from him,” General Manager Dell Demps said.
