Pelicans Open to Trading Eric Gordon
With concrete plans to make the team better by next season, New Orleans Pelicans General Manager Dell Demps didn’t rule out the possibility the franchise could trade shooting guard Eric Gordon this summer.
Gordon led the Hornets with a 17.0 scoring average, but he missed 40 games due to a right knee injury and had strict restrictions imposed by team doctors that held him out of the second game of back-to-back sets to avoid overworking his knee.
“To say if I anticipate him being back – I don’t know if that’s something I can answer right now, or him not to be back,’’ Demps said. “We’re going to sit down and evaluate every situation and opportunity.
