Eric Gordon Still Bitter Toward Hornets?

First things first: New Orleans Hornets shooting guard Eric Gordon is happy because he’s playing basketball again.
But the larger question of whether Gordon is happy as a Hornet can’t be answered quite so easily.
“You never know what could happen,” Gordon told USA TODAY Sports by phone when asked if he now sees New Orleans as the long-term spot for him.
“You can say one thing and do another, but at the end of the day I don’t get into it. With the things that I’ve been in with GMs, where I had one GM (former Clippers GM Neil Olshey, who now is in Portland) say that you’ll never get traded and the next thing you know that ends up happening a few days later. And now you have another GM who says you’re going to be here long term, so you would expect that to be the longest term that you can for being a part of this team (contractually). And I am here long term, but I could’ve had an opportunity to have five (years) instead of four.”
Gordon added he wished Hornets general manager Dell Demps would have shared his vision for the team before free agency as well.
