Rockets Consider Gordon Sign-and-Trade?
The Hornets are prepared to match any offer (Eric) Gordon receives, even if it’s a maximum-money offer. New Orleans is the only team that can offer Gordon a five-year, $79 million contract.
The Rockets appear to be the most serious about obtaining Gordon and could explore the possibility of putting forth a sign-and-trade package that would give the Hornets compensation, so they would be less inclined to match a potential offer.
Sources say Gordon wants to make a decision before he leaves for Las Vegas later this week to participate in Team USA workouts.
