Eric Gordon has been subject to trade rumors lately, as the New Orleans Pelicans have geared up with more talent this summer and the injury prone shooting guard could become expendable. As the Pelicans are close to signing Tyreke Evans, the discussion only continue to grow.
The Pelicans and the Sacramento Kings are rumored to be willing to make a sign-and-trade, with Greivis Vasquez and potentially Robin Lopez going to the Kings. Gordon could also be a candidate for the sign-and-trade, but he believes that he will remain a Pelican.
“I’m all in with the Pelicans,” said Gordon, who has been friends with Holiday and Evans since their AAU days. “It would be great if we can all play together. I would say we’d definitely have a chance to make the playoffs.”
“I wouldn’t say I’m 100 percent, but I do feel comfortable I am coming back,” Gordon said. “I think there is a good to great chance I will be back.”
Gordon was initially reluctant to playing in New Orleans, but as the team is gathering more talent, he seems to be happier with the direction of the team.
