Hometown Pacers Intrigue Eric Gordon
The soon-to-be restricted free agent has no idea where he’ll play next season, but he knows his hometown team, the Indiana Pacers, is on the list of teams he finds intriguing.
The New Orleans Hornets will be able to match any offer made to (Eric) Gordon this summer.
“It’s going to be interesting,” Gordon said Tuesday. “It’s all about whatever happens, happens. Coming back here would be a lot of pressure, but I think it would be good for the fans. We’ll see. You never know where this summer will take me.”
Gordon has been on the minds of most Pacers fans since he and the Hornets failed to agree to a contract extension last month.
The Pacers could use a scorer like Gordon, but it’s unknown how aggressively they would pursue him. He’s averaging 18.1 points in his career.
