Today was the deadline for extending the contracts of those eligible and one very interesting player was not extended. His name is ..... Eric Gordon. Now Gordon was the main piece of the CP3 deal and i know this could be a difficult maneuver but one that i really feel could help us out. The Knicks have many needs right now like a PG, defense, and a 3pt shooter. Gordan can be a great outside scoring threat to allow Melo to now score in ways he does best (drive and create his own shots) and not have to shoot so many 3's. I know we have been having difficulty getting enough shots to go around and this by no means helps but he's just really really good at what he does. I think that him not resigning shows concerns that he doesn't want to go back and theirs difficulty getting guys signed because the NBA owns the Hornets. Im not going to really go into who we would trade because no one truly knows but it would obviously have to be one or more of our young guards, picks and an expiring contract. This is probably one of the lesser thoughts right now but i saw that he wasn't picked up so i thought I would throw it out there.
Pros- Scoring (3pt), not a terrible defender, true 2 guard, get to move combo guard(s)
Cons- adds to shot concern, Knee?, pieces to move
Pros seem to out way the cons in my opinion
