Gordan is a good player but he is not a CP3. Trade him while you can. Never did like him especially when he made a statement saying he didnt like it in NO. Pelicans should have let him go on to the SUNS.
To be straight up, I like Gordon. People were all happy about him again when he came back and was lookin good. Now he's on a slump/has been sore and everybody wants to just dump him immediately.
His value is only going to go up as he gets back in form so why would we trade him now? And there's been no indication of malcontent since the Suns shenanigans.
This team is moving in one direction and Gordon just doesn’t seem to fit in with the culture Dell and Monty are trying to install. Look at the player that Monty points to time and time again as the heart and soul of the team- Jason Smith. He is playing with a torn labrum. Not a bruise or a sprain, a TORN labrum in his shoulder. He can easily choose to shut it down, after all the Hornets are going anywhere this season. But instead, he is going to play through it and have surgery in the offseason. That is the type of player Monty and Dell want here. Eric Gordon, meanwhile, sprains his hand in practice and not only does he miss the game, but he doesn’t even support his team on the bench.
Instead of changing our team off emotion, can you suggest a feasible trade? I'll try to help you.Eric is not getting traded, His heart is in N.O. like me,
Citing Chris Broussard is like citing the Enquirer.

Off just poster speculation, I've seen stuff like:
Gordon for Chandler Parsons and a 1st (gives a divisional rival Gordon and Harden: not a fan).
Gordon for Harrison Barnes and a 1st (I can deal with it but my Barnes fandom expired a long time ago).
Gordon for Danny Granger (doesn't help either team).
A smart GM just doesn't make any of these trades right now. If anything, let his value go up then dangle him for a top pick in next year's stacked class.
