Eric Gordon to Sign Offer Sheet with Suns
Looks like Eric Gordon will be signing the offer sheet the Suns offered him earlier today. A few minutes ago, New Orleans Hornets’ restricted free agent Eric Gordon was reported to agreeing to sign the offer sheet which was offered by the Suns for four years/$58 million.
Free agents cannot officially sign until July 11. After that, the New Orleans Hornets have three days to match the offer. New Orleans has stated in previous weeks that they will match any offer Eric Gordon will receive so he can stay in the Big Easy to play with newly signed rookies, Anthony Davis and Austin Rivers.
Gordon is hoping for the Hornets not to match the offer because he was intrigued in the meeting with the Phoenix Suns and would like to become a part of the Suns rather than the Hornets because he feels he is more suited to be in Phoenix.
