Eric Gordon “Open to trade” from Houston Rockets
Veteran combo guard Eric Gordon may be looking for a way out of Houston, according to Kelly Iko of The Athletic.
Will his fate be the same as Wall’s? Sources with knowledge of Gordon’s thinking say while Gordon hasn’t approached management to ask for a trade, he’s open to moving to a more favorable situation. There’s likely to be a playoff contender out there who would value Gordon’s offensive production, whereas Houston’s main focus should be on developing and improving a young core to compete in seasons down the road. Gordon is only 32 years old and has been productive when he’s played over the last two seasons.

The Nuggets traded for Gordon at the most recent NBA trade deadline, sending Gary Harris, R.J. Hampton and a future first round pick to the Orlando magic for Gordon.
