The New Orleans Pelicans are trying very hard to make a move before the NBA trade deadline passes on February 20th and one player they’re trying to move is guard Eric Gordon. They haven’t had much luck in finding a suitor for Gordon, but that hasn’t stopped the Pelicans from trying.
According to Gery Woelfel, the Milwaukee Bucks could be a team that shows interest in Gordon as the deadline approaches.
Rest assured, Bucks officials will be closely scrutinizing Pelicans guard Eric Gordon, subject of trade rumors.

The Bucks don’t seem to be in the market to make a big, splashy trade at the deadline, but could look to upgrade at guard now rather than wait until the offseason.
Milwaukee looks to be a lock for the No. 1 pick at the end of the season, and trading for Gordon may throw that plan for a loop, then again he’s not lighting things up the the Pelicans at the moment either.
