NBA Trade Rumors: Pelicans shopping Eric Gordon

NBA Trade Rumors — Eric Gordon is no stranger to trade rumors and it seems that the New Orleans Pelicans are once again open to listening to offers for their shooting guard.

According to Sporting News, the Pelicans are looking to get bigger up front and are shopping Gordon.

A little more than two years after acquiring him, and 18 months after matching a four-year, $58 million offer sheet from Phoenix, the Pelicans remain active in their pursuit of trading guard Eric Gordon, league sources told Sporting News this week. New Orleans has made contact with several teams about Gordon, even devising three-team scenarios in order to find him a new home.

It’s understandable that the Pelicans continue to explore the market with Gordon, as he has actually been healthy this year. Still, his production is not quite up to par considering his contract pays him over $14 million per year.

Jrue Holiday should be sidelined for a while, so this could leave more room for Gordon to produce on the floor and perhaps increase his trade value.
