The trade rumors are coming in at a fast and furious pace as we are just over 24 hours from the start of the 2013 NBA Draft and it looks like the New Orleans Pelicans are ready to jump in to the mix. According to the latest reports, the Pelicans are looking to make shooting guard Eric Gordon available in trade talks.
The New Orleans Pelicans are making Eric Gordon “very available” in trade talks, according to a source that spoke with RealGM.
Gordon signed a four-year, $58 million deal with the Phoenix Suns last offseason that was matched by the Pelicans. Gordon badly wanted to play for the Suns and was publicly disappointed by the Pelicans’ decision to match.
It is not a surprise in the least bit, considering how often Gordon has been linked to trade talks since joining New Orleans.
His poor injury history also hurts, but that could keep him from attracting potential suitors as well.
Whether or not Gordon will be moved remains to be seen, but the Hornets are certainly willing to part ways with their injury-prone guard.
