Eric Gordon Signs Offer Sheet with Phoenix Suns

And so it begins. According to the twitter account of ESPN's Chris Broussard, Eric Gordon has verbally agreed to a four year, $58 million offer sheet with the Phoenix Suns.

Eric Gordon and the Phoenix Suns agree to a Maximum Offer sheet worth $58 million over 4 years, sources said.

Gordon told me his desire is to play in Phoenix, not New Orleans.

Eric Gordon told me this: "I strongly feel (the Suns) are the right franchise for me. Phoenix is just where my heart is.''

I don't know how to copy and paste tweets so that will have to do for now (until you more professional folk come in and help). The big kicker is Gordon stating that he wants to play in Phoenix. The idea all along was that Dell Demps would match any offer that Gordon was offered and this complicates matters a little bit. And you'd have to imagine that the team will still attempt to change his mind and match the offer. What’s he going to do? Sit out the four years? I seriously doubt he’d be a locker room cancer or anything for that duration. The money is reasonable (it’s far less than the Hornets could have offered: 5 years, $80 million) and Gordon seemed like he wanted to be in New Orleans.

Still, the comments about his heart not being in New Orleans are a bit deflating on what has, otherwise, been a mostly positive summer for the Hornets.

Talk, discuss, panic, anything.
