NBA Trade Rumors - Broussard: "Eric Gordon Trade Highly Unlikely:

USA TODAY Sports

Eric Gordon's absence yesterday raised eyebrows across the league and among fans. Indeed, post-game chatter was equally divided between Gordon potentially being moved by the trade deadline and the fact that a team headed for the lottery had just put together a 36 point win.

Now, Chris Broussard and his "heh, Deron Williams texted me!" act have come under some serious side-eye of late, but nonetheless, here's his thing for ESPN Insider today:

We all know Eric Gordon wanted to sign with Phoenix last summer and many around the league believe he would still rather not be in New Orleans. That's prompted several clubs to call the Hornets about Gordon's availability. Those calls, in turn, led New Orleans to start calling around to gauge Gordon's trade value.

I'm told a Gordon trade this season is highly unlikely, with one source with knowledge of the situation telling ESPN.com this week that, as things stand, there's "less than a 10 percent chance'' New Orleans would move Gordon before the deadline. Still, the fact that the Hornets made calls around the league implies that they are at least warming up to the idea of moving him at some point.

I've got a quick piece coming tomorrow on why I think moving Gordon now would be a bad move; for now, at least, it appears that there might not be enough immediate interest for him. A lot could change by the time the trade deadline rolls around of course.
