Rockets seeking a first-round pick for Eric Gordon




 

Eric Gordon, 33, is shooting career-highs from the field (.505) and three-point range (.455) after two injury-riddled seasons. With Gordon healthy and adding a needed veteran presence to a rebuilding Rockets team, Houston is seeking a first-round pick in trade talks for the veteran scoring guard, league sources told HoopsHype.

Best trade matches for Rockets (teams with assets) and Eric Gordon (teams contending):
Rockets YES, Gordon NO: CLE, NYK, DAL, CHA, BOS, ATL
Rockets NO, Gordon YES: BRK, MIL, MIA, LAC, LAL, UTH, DEN
Ideal for both: PHX, PHI, CHI, MEM, (maybe) GSW - 1:45 PM

More on this storyline

Michael Scotto: Scotto: Some playoff-caliber teams are monitoring Eric Gordon and Daniel Theis with the Houston Rockets, given where they are in the standings as guys they could potentially sell. -via HoopsHype / January 12, 2022

Tim MacMahon on the Rockets: I don't get the sense that they're eager to dump Eric Gordon. I do think they'd have to feel like they're getting value in return. -via Spotify / January 8, 2022

Houston, obviously, is going to take calls on Eric Gordon and Christian Wood (it'll take calls on John Wall, too, if only another team would make one). However, there's no hurry since both are signed through next season. I badly want the center-less Hornets to take a run at Wood, although generating a matching salary could get tricky; Charlotte does have a lottery-protected future first from New Orleans to sweeten a deal. -via The Athletic / December 30, 2021
